ABOUT

LEARN MORE

We offer a unique, intimate experience for both boss babes and gents who are ready to elevate their business, client experience, and personal life and this is why we limit our attendees to maintain an intimate setting.  Upon your arrival, you will receive your room assignments and meet the members of your Elevate! team.  We’ve taken out the projection screens and long tables and upgraded you to a more inviting atmosphere giving you a fireside chat feel and the opportunity to directly interact with the speaker allowing you to get answers to your questions on the spot.  During this experience, we are ditching the sales pitch tactics and getting down to the nitty gritty, hands-on experience you desire and deserve.

location

Elevate! is all about ease and elevation.  Camp Lucy, will host the workshop and lodging accommodations.  Enjoy a stress-free educational workshop in one location nestled in the Hill Country.   

We have set-up a Room Block with Camp Lucy to ensure each of our attendees stay on site.  To get the most bang for your buck, you may want to room with a fellow attendee or you may select one of their private accommodations.  You can get to know other attendees in our Facebook group and make arrangements.  Each morning you will enjoy a fresh breakfast in the company of our speakers before starting your day.
 
 Attendees may request their roommate, but, we highly encourage you to room with an attendee you may not know.  This will allow you to build relationships and get more insight on how others operate their business.
