The upcoming Sept 21st Women of Insight ‘Retreat in the City’ will feature five speakers, all of them fabulous and successful women who will be sharing the stories of their business and personal journeys. Over the next few weeks I’d like to tell you more about these inspiring speakers.

Bobs and lolo WEBThis week I’d like you to meet Bobs & LoLo, also known as Lorraine Pond and Robyn Hardy.

Bobs & LoLo are four-time JUNO nominated singer-songwriters and stars of the upbeat, musical preschool series Sing, Dance and Play with Bobs & LoLo. Recently named Canada’s Favourite Kids’ Entertainer in a nationwide poll by CBC Music, this dynamic duo is dedicated to connecting children to nature with music, movement and make-believe.

With nearly 15 years experience in television, live performances and web-based programming for children, Robyn Hardy (Bobs) and Lorraine Pond (LoLo) have also created six award-winning albums and authored a critically acclaimed children’s book titled Run Salmon Run. Bobs & LoLo have received accolades from the young and the young at heart along with the Parents’ Choice Foundation, Western Canadian Music Alliance, the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada and the JUNO Awards.

Robyn Hardy (Bobs) is an enthusiastic and caring individual with a passion for conservation education. She holds a Bachelor of Education from the University of British Columbia and a Bachelor of Arts, Honours Degree in Linguistics from the University of Victoria. Her diverse academic background alongside a childhood filled with music and dance, lent itself perfectly in her transition from educator to entertainer. During her time away from the stage, she can often be found with her family in the mountains or at the beach. On stage she loves to sing, dance, clap, snap and tap!

Lorraine Pond (LoLo) is an energetic performer with a flare for creating connections between young audiences and the natural world. She completed her undergraduate degree with a specialization in Exercise Science from the School of Human Kinetics at the University of British Columbia. Following graduation, Lorraine accepted a position as an environmental educator with the Vancouver Aquarium, which sparked her interest in developing nature programs for young families. When she’s not performing, Lorraine enjoys spending time with her family in Vancouver’s beautiful parks. On stage she loves to sing, dance, wiggle, slide and glide!

Join us September 21st at Retreat in the City and hear more from this fabulous duo. It will be a great opportunity to rev up your inspiration and connect with other like-minded women!
