PIQUA — For those questioning the role that negativity plays in their lives, the next iLOVE Piqua community workshop may have a solution.

The Positive Energy People ‘P.E.P.’ Rally on Aug. 6, presented by Brandon W. Johnson – the “Positive Energy Guy” – is planning on discussing how a positive attitude can help manifest positive results in one’s life and work.

This next iLOVE Piqua community workshop follows the one with speaker Peter Kageyama, author of “For the Love of Cities.”

“It was amazing,” Lorna Swisher said about the first workshop in the series. “It went really well. He is an accomplished speaker and his message about making a community more loveable and how citizens can engage to help — that is a great message.”

More than 100 people attended the first workshop, according to Swisher, executive director of Mainstreet Piqua, one of the sponsoring organizations.

While the first workshop focused on how to make a community “more loveable,” this next one will build its platform on positivity. Speaker Brandon Johnson is a Top 30 Global Guru in the Hospitality Industry. According to a press release on the event, Johnson is also an award-winning author and speaker who has been coming to Piqua since 2011 to discuss this topic.

“Brandon Johnson is a nationally known speaker on the hospitality industry,” Swisher explained. Johnson will discuss how positivity can improve one’s life and one’s community, according to Swisher.

Individuals and community members can benefit from this talk as well as businesses. Swisher stated that this workshop can be “of real value for companies who want to build stronger teams throughout their org

Attendees may find themselves exploring a new perspective to gain different outcomes in their lives.

“It’d be great if people could realize that every action that they have, positive or negative, has an impact on those around them,” Swisher said.

Swisher mentioned that she also hopes that people are able to take away “how important it is that people work together to improve the Piqua community.”

The four hour workshop will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Aug. 6 at the Fort Piqua Plaza, and the cost to participate is $30 per person. Register now at http://pep-rally.eventbrite.com or by visiting the iLOVE Piqua Community Workshop Series Facebook page.

Sponsors of the workshop include the City of Piqua, Piqua Area Chamber of Commerce, Piqua Arts Council, Mainstreet Piqua, Piqua Public Library, Citizens for a Better Piqua, Positively Promoting Piqua, Edison Community College Foundation, and the Piqua Optimist Club.
