Carole Bertuzzi Luciani.... The Moodivator
Carole calls it like it is (was)... a woman's journey
Hi everyone … Well, It's happened. I have agreed to return again to present yet another new program at the UGG Friday Night Pajama Party. And I'm actually excited about.
This new program is a result of Nadja sharing an idea with me. Coincidentally, a similar one of my own had already been percolating. But, hearing it from her sealed the deal. So here goes …
I will once again play historian (hysterian) and take you through a journey of the decades … a trip I love to take. This time the main character will be me through the ages of 8 - present day (which will then be 64 but who's counting and who cares?). And what I will be doing is 'talking on the phone' … about life, current issues, hassles and hilarity. And you get to listen in on every call.
You won't want to miss this first-ever-presented material. At times It'll will be informative, perhaps familiar
but it will especially be fun. And most certainly it will 'get the party started' and set the tone for the rest of the fabulous weekend.
I look forward to once again making a fool of myself among friends. I sure hope you'll be there to enjoy it.
Carole Bertuzzi Luciani … The Moodivator
Carole is known as The Moodivator and proves it to us year after year that she truly can change the mood of the room. Through the use of props, story telling and high energy body language Carole will not only get our attention but also enlighten us with both her wit wisdom and her wisdom.
As a professional speaker for close to thirty years she has spoken to hundreds of thousands of individuals around North America. Regardless of the size of audience, she strives to immediately connect with each sharing her unique brand of humour and sidewalk view of the world.
As well, Carole is a Canadian best-selling author of 2 volumes of "I have a story for you …" Musings of the Moodivator. You'll want your own copies … a fabulous bathroom/waiting room/night table read for anyone with a sense of humour or perhaps needing one.
Returning to UGG for the fourth time, Carole looks forward to reconnecting with friends from the past as well as eagerly meet the UGG first-timers … whether at the session or at least on the dance floor.
Hmmm, not sure if you know enough about me yet? Feel free to check me out …

We'll share our stories, popcorn and laugh the night away just like we did when we were kids. After it's all over, we'll let the hotel clean up so we can go jump on the beds!

Movement • Just like your business, our body’s systems function interactively. The nervous, cardiovascular, digestive, respiratory, metabolic and immune systems are all dependent, to a large extent on the body’s ability to move. How much do you move during your day?
Food • Did you know that people who diet slow down their metabolic rate and gain more weight over time? Find out why calorie-based diets make you fatter in the long run.
Quiet Time • Ignoring rest over a period of time may negatively impact your hormonal balance, causing energy levels to decrease or fluctuate. Learn how breathing can reduce stress hormones.
Mind, Heart & Body Appreciation • Patience and appreciation of the small steps you are making to get you closer to your goals is essential in keeping you motivated. This makes the journey fun!
Vered Haiun’s deep rooted belief is that our body is a miraculous machine, and when given what it requires, it performs like one.
