Winspiration Day…you probably thought you read that wrong, right? You didn’t! The word ‘Winspiration’ refers to becoming inspired and in doing so, inspiring others. Which is a win-win. So…winspiration!
But we didn’t come up with the name Winspiration Day…
The first Winspiration Day started in 2003 in Frankfurt by a very successful businessperson, Wolfgang Sonnenburg. He was convinced that there was more to life than just the fast-paced, rat-race of business.
He knew that the world would be a better place if each person had a chance to truly maximize their own gifts and talents, and was certain that if each one of us just started living our dreams today, then best would be yet to come.
Thus the tagline ‘Winspiration Day: tomorrow, today!’ was born.
Winspiration Day became a global event when Mr. Sonnenburg and the Winspiration Org partnered with international inspirational icon, Bob Proctor of Proctor Gallagher Institute (based in the USA). Mr. Proctor reached out to his global network to see who wanted to take this phenomenal concept globally, by hosting local events.
And so our Vancouver host, Doris Orr, made the commitment. Last year was the first year that Winspiration Day was formally held in Vancouver, and we’re looking forward to another amazing day of winspiration this year!
This is a day to celebrate our diversity, creativity, and varying special abilities. Basically, we want to celebrate what makes an individual unique, while supporting each other through the power of community.
This is a family-friendly event, with emphasis on intent, mindfulness, and the power of capturing inspiration when it comes knocking at your door.

We hope to see you this year at Winspiration Day Vancouver—be inspired; be inspiring!
