We believe in the power of women’s stories.Whether building a business, raising a family, or navigating a career industry that’s primarily male-dominated, women have unique experiences and wisdom to share. True leadership and growth comes when we share that wisdom with other women who need support and encouragement.
What to expect
get-to-the point Talks
September 9, 2017
All Female SpeakersElevate Summit events have traditionally featured 60% female speakers, and for the first time we’ll be making that 100%! All our speakers will be coached to speak on stage, even if they’ve never done it before.
Encouraging StoriesWe believe that everyone has a story to tell that can encourage or lead someone in the world. We’re dedicated to telling stories that will resonate with women no matter where they are in life.
Live Stream AccessWe want this event to be accessible to as many people as possible, so we’ll be selling live stream tickets for a lower fee. (We believe the content is valuable, so access to videos will not be free.)
This is not our first rodeo.
