Rise Up

An Event for Companies Who Refuse to Stay Down.

A live virtual event happening from 9am – 3pm on April 30, 2020.

It’s Time to Change Your Thinking.

Making smart business decisions in uncertainty is tough. You don’t need complete clarity before you can move. On April 30th, join us for a virtual one-day event where together we look for new opportunities for your business and prepare for life on the other side.

Workshop Sessions

And just like that, the world changed. And you need to change too. Each of these Rise Up Workshop Sessions is designed to build on each other with insights and expertise that helps you know where to put your energy, both now and into the future.

Sure the world has changed, but what does that mean for your business? During this session we will examine the bird’s eye view of businesses across multiple industries. What are the emerging trends? What is and isn’t working? What innovations are happening? And what the hell does “bounce back” mean anyway?


Let’s talk about how to connect with customers and clients in new ways based on our new reality. People pay attention to things that are important to them. Create an emotional connection that goes beyond what you sell and understand how to build passion around your products and services.

Fist Hit Action Session Icon


Moving the needle is about turning over every rock in your yard looking for opportunities you might not have seen before and trying new things. What are the top tactics that you might want to consider? Our speakers and panelists will discuss real ideas for you to put to the test and unearth opportunities for marketing your business.

One Day. 19 Speakers. No Disruption.
