VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 8, 2016) - Brew Summit, a gathering of mindfulness and movement in nature, is announcing a nearly sold out event and the names of the remaining panel Invokers. Based around an immersive day of invoking conversations and real 'tell-it-like-it-is" feedback, the event is taking place at the Sea to Sky Gondola on Monday, April 18, 2016.

Brew Summit will be a day of exploring different leadership paradigms for men, surrounded by nature and the mountains. The vibrant, insightful Invokers will share thought-provoking ideas and stimulate audience engagement throughout the event.

The topic of masculinity in our modern world will be discussed at a panel on (Hu)Manliness. Other topics at the event will include Bringing your Purpose to Life and Cultivating a Global Mindfulness. Focusing on these 'big conversations,' Brew Summit uses a distinct approach where everyone in the audience is a seeker and active participant in the discussion. Throughout the full day event, meaningful discussions will be interspersed with outdoor adventure experiences led by Wellmen.

The additional Invokers announced today, joining Kevin Newman and Masa Takei, among others, are:

Stu McNish, President & Storyteller, Oh Boy Productions: As an award winning broadcaster, McNish founded Oh Boy Productions in 1997 and still thrives on the art of storytelling.
