Midlife has an incredible way of shining a big bright light on who we are, what we want in life, who we want to share it with and how we choose to take care of ourselves.

No one knows this truth better than renowned singer/songwriter & author, JANN ARDEN.

Her career highlights include chart-topping musical awards, a library of bestselling books, a wildly popular podcast, radio show host, tv talk show host--and most recently, her new show JANN on CTV, where she plays a fictionalized, self-deprecating version of herself, was named #1 new Canadian series of the year!

Whether it's through her songs, her newly re-released book "Feeding My Mother" (an honest account of her experience taking care of aging parents and navigating Alzheimer's with her mom), or her popular social media posts, Jann's poignant writing, wisdom and wit resonate with her fans through both laughter and tears.

We are beyond thrilled to welcome JANN ARDEN as the keynote speaker for:
