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. 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.
