EBC Retreat – Chicago, IL Sept 20th, 2014

EBC 1-day Retreat

A Personal Invitation to a High Level, Business-Building Gathering of Open-Hearted, Conscious Speakers, Writers and Trainers

Saturday, Sept 20th, 2014

Chicago, Illinois

As a member of the Evolutionary Business Council or an invited guest,  you are welcome to join an intimate gathering in Chicago, Illinois on September 20th, 2014. Imagine this . . .

Sitting across the table from you is Shawne Duperon or Teresa de Grosbois or Lisa  Mininni, whom you’ve heard on the collaboration calls but never actually met! You’ve been dying to pick her brain about how to go pandemic.

At the next table are several more global personalities. You are putting faces to names and know that there is so much collective knowledge packed into this room that smoke will indeed be rising before the end of the day. You enjoy a rich conversation as you head over to the meeting room where you sit in a circle with other inspiring luminaries and enjoy a round of introductions – with each person somehow bringing something important and unique to the room. The day is spent in meaningful and useful conversation and collaboration. You stay up far too late that night scheming on ways you can collaborate and making notes of all the cool and easy things you can do to grow your business when you get home. The end result? The Evolutionary Business Council (EBCouncil) is an invitation-only event where I am gathering some of the savviest, most leading-edge conscious entrepreneurs I know for a day of masterminding, learning from each other – and supporting each other wherever it’s a fit. You will grow your influence, build your mastermind groups, and create lifelong business relationships (and maybe even friendships) with other thought leaders who want to make a difference. If you take a look at who’s coming, I think you’ll agree there’s a good chance this will happen. You will: – gain powerful alliances with others who are committed to teaching business and success principles; – compare and learn about powerful techniques other trainers, speakers and authors are using to grow their reach, including both traditional and social media; – have the opportunity to “sit on the hot seat” having the room brainstorm how to help you meet your immediate goals; – have a safe environment in which to expand your knowledge of the success principles and work on personal blocks that may be stopping you. If you are an invited guest, you will also have the opportunity to learn more about and join the Evolutionary Business Council in a more long term way if that feels like a fit for you.

Many will be attending Shawne Duperon’s Media Mastery Bootcamp Sept 18th and 19th which you receive free the first time, with your membership (or for $97 all access after your first time).

Kevin Gangle

We go beyond the obvious and the ordinary. Through our work, things will never be the same after you distinguish the hidden and taken-for-granted thinking that is at the SOURCE of your performance. Our context-based work allows organizations and people to see the hidden constraints within their own thinking that have dramatically limited the effectiveness of the people, resources, and technology that they already have. We make visible the glass ceiling that has limited the pace of their evolution and ultimately put a lid on what they can achieve.
