The TEAM Conference

Learn. Connect. Grow.

May 12, 2021

This year, we are going virtual.  (and sending perks!)

What is the TEAM Conference?

The conference for growth-minded business leaders.

Leaders wear a lot of hats, but each one adds weight. At some point, they have to lighten their load by delegating responsibilities to people with shared vision and values. At the TEAM Conference, our speakers are experts in their fields and will offer not only practical advice on building businesses, but also inspiration and motivation.  The speakers come from a variety of different disciplines and will bring unique perspectives on how to build and strengthen business, install a consistent culture, and give back to the community.

What will a virtual conference look like?


We will be broadcasting the talks right to your computer screen, creating unique ways to interact with the speakers, and using breakout rooms to give you opportunities to connect with other guests.


We want to allow you to truly immerse in the experience, so you’ll get a package of conference supplies sent right to where you are experiencing the conference.


Raise of hands… who goes to a conference and gets all fired up… but then loses the motivation after getting back to work.  Us too.  So our speakers will be providing awesome follow up resources for the month after the conference that will help keep you focused and accountable.
