Sparked Salon: Leading With Love

Sparked Salon

The Hivery and Sparked come together to create a salon-style evening of inspiration, connection and empowerment.

This month is centered around the theme: "Leading with Love", featuring Lesley Desaulniers + Lisa Rueff, interviewed by Grace Kraaijvanger (founder of The Hivery).

You’ll get an opportunity to hear from these inspiring women how they lead with love, what lights them up, how they handle challenges, and life lessons they’ve learned along the way. 

About Our Guests:

Lisa Rueff

Lisa Rueff

Lisa has accomplished more in the last 5 years than most people do in a lifetime. She is the Founder of Sparked, the revolutionary new board game with inspiration, heart and hilarity. She has built the Jacmel Children Center, a 12,000 square foot orphanage and school in Haiti, with 27 children living there between the ages of 3-10 years old. She leads international humanitarian retreats and helps people discover their joys of philanthropy through hands-on giving. She was the Executive Director of the Do it For The Love Foundation, a wish-granting music foundation for people with life threatening illnesses. More than anything, Lisa loves empowering people to follow their passions and reach for their highest potential.
