Mark your calendars and rev up your excitement because something incredible is about to unfold! Get ready to shatter the chains of outdated sales tactics and embrace a new era of business brilliance. 🚀

Picture this: Monday, September 18th, 2023 – a date that marks the beginning of a seismic shift in the way we approach sales. No more aggressive maneuvers, no more manipulative ploys. It's time to rewrite the rulebook and redefine success on our own terms.

For far too long, we've been handed a playbook of unsavory techniques – false scarcity, anxiety-inducing tactics, and those infamous bait-and-switch webinars. These tactics might have been peddled as the golden ticket to success, but deep down, they left us feeling uneasy.

But guess what? There's a luminescent path forward, and it's all about marketing with a soulful spark, unwavering integrity, and a dose of good old honesty.

Now, here's where the real magic happens. Imagine a gathering of exceptional minds, speakers who are poised to unveil the secrets of connecting, captivating, and cultivating without resorting to pressure, stress, or the dreaded ickiness of traditional online marketing.

This isn't just another mundane summit where you simply listen and nod along. No way! Brace yourselves for an interactive extravaganza that'll have you on the edge of your seat. We're talking about an experience that leaves an indelible mark, blending exhilaration with invaluable insights.

When the curtain falls on this event, you won't just walk away with newfound knowledge. You'll carry a treasure trove of solutions, connections that feel like a warm hug, and resources that'll fuel your journey to the stars. Oh, and let's not forget those action steps – tangible, actionable strategies that'll launch you into a stratosphere of success.

So, who's invited to this electrifying rendezvous? Heart-centered entrepreneurs and solopreneurs – the trailblazers who dared to dream beyond the conventional. These are the individuals who believe that business is about more than profit; it's about making a genuine impact. They've had enough of the smoke and mirrors, and they're ready to sculpt a future where values and growth walk hand in hand.

Get ready to immerse yourself in a revolution that's energetic, engaging, and entirely yours for the taking. The countdown begins now! 🎉🌟


Speaker Expectations

  • Promote the event and generate a minimum of 10 opt-ins
  • Attend for at least 2 hours in addition to your speaking time
  • Actively engage with other speakers and participants throughout the event


Your Speaker Experience

This event is produced by Michael Whitehouse, and Michael creates events that a fun, engaging, exciting, and valuable to the audience and the speakers. This is not a watch with your camera off while you do something else event. This is not a drop in, give your talk, and leave event. This is an interactive event!

We want to create an event that you will enjoy speaking at and get value from. More interaction is always better than less interaction. That keeps the energy up in the room, keeps the audience engaged, and makes it more fun for you.

You are welcome offer your gift (the one you put in the application) during your talk as long as it is low key and not pitchy. Offering good. Infomercial bad.

15 minutes is not a lot of time to go deep, so you are welcome to invite the audience to a follow up event where you can do much more into depth on your topic. It is required that your talk during our event provide valuable, actionable information. It is recommended that your follow up event do the same as well, and not simply be a pitch to sell something without offering more value during that event.


Live and Pre-recorded Speakers

During the event, we will have 8-10 live speakers, each speaking 15 minutes each. We will also have as many as 5 pre-recorded speakers.

Pre-recorded speakers will provide us a 10 minute video of their talk. This video will be sent out to everyone registered for the event in the run up to the event. You are then welcome and encouraged you attend the event live to interact with those who watched your talk in our breakouts, Q&A, hotseat and other engagement sessions.

If you would like to participate but are unable to attend live, you are welcome to apply and note on the application that you would like to be a pre-recorded speaker.

Important: pre-recorded talks are not sent out until and unless you have achieved the promotion requirement.


Pre-Event Speaker Meet-Up

In our experience, one of the greatest forms of value our speakers get is the connection with other speakers. They have found clients, vendors, mentors, partners, and friends among their fellow speakers.

To facilitate this, we will be hosting a 90 minute, pre-event speaker meetup on August 31st at 4 PM Eastern. 

This is not required, but is highly recommended because of the value it will provide for you.


Event Style

The event will be a live, Zoom-based event running 11 AM to 5 PM Eastern Time.

We're aiming for engagement. We want an event where people feel they are part of something, not where they feel like they are watching a YouTube video.

This means that we'll have interactive activities. It means we encourage interactive presentations.

It also means that we encourage speakers to be there for as much of the event as possible because you'll be making some connections while you're there. (Live speakers are required to attend for at least 2 hours of the event)


Schedule Structure

Speaking slots will be 15 minutes, or, if your presentation is interactive we give you an extra 5 minute for a total of 20.

Each hour will be formatted as follows:

0-15 Speaker

15-30 Interaction

30-45 Speaker

45-60 Interaction

Interaction may be speed networking, hot seat coaching, Q&As, or anything else.

Do not assume that the interaction block after your talk is for your Q&A, but if you do get a good flow going with the audience and they are highly engaged, I may choose to just let that keep going if the vibe is good.



All presentations will be recorded. 

Any speakers who achieve the minimum number of opt-ins (which should be all of you, right?) will have their presentation shared out to the entire list of registrants in the days after the event.

Additionally, some videos may be shared out to attendees or others on my list for various reasons including promoting that speaker's affiliate link or program.

Event partners may also share and use the recordings at the discretion of ConCardia, LLC. These recordings may be edited and deployed in any way that we choose for the benefit of our audiences.



Speakers are expected to generate a minimum of 10 opt-ins. Swipe copy will be provided, or you can write your own copy. If you write really good copy, I'll share it with the other speakers and credit you.

In addition to traditional swipe copy, Guest Letters will be provided which you can share verbatim as a letter from the organizers to your audience.

If you bring in at least 25 opt ins, event producer Michael Whitehouse will promote your affiliate offer to his entire list including all summit registrants. (After the event, a final leaderboard will be shared. It is up to you to send content to share to Michael. You must take advantage of this within 60 days of the conclusion of the event.)

Marla Press Founder of Speakers on Fire Academy

The coaching profession increased by 800% in the past few years. You can stand out from the crowd by learning the secrets to connect authentically with your audience, wow them, draw them in, and inspire action. 

Communication is only 10% the words you use, it's 20% your tone, and a whopping 70% your energy. Most people don't know how to master their energy, and it will make or break your business.  We are so bombarded with information that having good teaching points is no longer enough and people can smell salesy techniques a mile away. Audiences crave an experience, connection, and a transformation. 

In this presentation, Marla will not just talk about presence and authenticity, she will demonstrate how you can fully embody these skills to magnetize your audience.  You will come away with tools to authentically connect on a deep level with your audience (whether of one or many) and get them fired up to work with you.

Story as a Sense-Making Strategy: Learning From the Oldest Marketers in the World
Thom Van Dycke Van Dycke Certified StoryBrand Guide

In every culture, every language, and every corner of the globe throughout history stories have been used to make sense of the world. From ancient myths to modern-day movies - we are rarely more engaged than when immersed in a story. 

But few entrepreneurs truly take advantage of the sense-making power of storytelling in their marketing. What a tragedy! Your brand or business has the solution to a real problem and if you could articulate that clearly, you would attract your ideal audience, build your authority, and grow your business. 

This presentation will explain the “why” of story-based marketing and get you started writing your own brand narrative so you can bring more value to the world in a powerfully relevant way.
