    - Agenda Coming Soon

Real Talk Panel: Take Your Power Seat

  • Forget the traditional format- we’re headlining a special panel exploring hot topics surrounded by our Take Your Power Seat theme. No fluffy, sugarcoating- just genuine conversation led by professionals with a unique POV.

Keynote Speakers:

  • We’ve searched high and higher for speakers with substance and rocking attitudes and we found them! You’ll hear from Keynote Speakers on logistical/practical and wellness leadership topics. (Subjects & Times TBA)

Forward-Thinking Breakout Sessions

  • Your time is valuable and we won’t waste a minute of it. You’ll choose your breakout sessions with experienced and highly qualified trainers and facilitators. Consider grabbing a friend and tag-teaming the sessions, the information is just that good. (Subjects & Times TBA soon)

Upscale Exhibit Shop

  • Grab a cup of coffee and simmer around our intimate shop. Exhibitors are hand selected to meet your needs. We support businesses and entrepreneurs who support leadership. The exhibit area will be located near registration, you can’t miss it.


Actually we have more, but our web designer suggested that four would look better :)

EXCELLENT training and content.

EXCELLENT training and content. We’ve combined Leadership and Wellness because we support the Complete Woman. The proof is in the agenda, we’ve added complimentary Thyroid (and other health) Screenings with Cleveland Clinic Surgeon Dr. Joyce Shin

Extraordinary Speakers

We offer a variety of extraordinary speakers, all with unique backgrounds and points of view on leadership and success.

Serious about SMBs

We are serious about supporting small businesses in our Upscale Exhibit Shop. We carefully select vendors with the goal of helping each one succeed while offering a great experience for attendees.
