You've seen us pop up hundreds of places, including:

power moves summit is not just another
*zone out on zoom* event

In fact, we encourage you to think of it more like a retreat (emphasis on treat 😉)

During the day you will experience:

  • Two 60-min “What’s Working” Expert Panels – one on media relations and the other on business development  – to give you fresh insight into what’s working when it comes to client results – and what it takes to operate in this fast-paced industry and avoid burnout.

  • Two 60-min “Get Your Mind Right” Masterclasses to help you reconnect to your why, reveal blind spots and identify goals for 2021 – Q&A included. 
  • Three 60-min Morning Workshops designed to open you p to new ways to turn your expertise into an aligned offering — including strategic planning offerings, becoming a PR coach, and developing an agency alliance to step into full-service and go after bigger clients and budgets. Take your pick or upgrade to VIP for recordings.

  • Two 15-min speed networking breakouts – to take advantage of one of the best parts about events – meeting new people! You’ll be randomly assigned into small breakout groups to discuss Summit content, swap stories and connect.

  • Mentor Power Hours for VIP ticket holders only — a full hour focused on social media/content creation, working with influencers, making it as a solo publicist, event marketing in a pandemic and career coaching – pick your mentor and settle in for an intimate open conversation and custom advice

  • Three 30-min Afternoon Mini-Workshops for quick strategies around reputation management, becoming a thought leader and making the switch from freelancer to focused business owner. Take your pick or upgrade to VIP for recordings.

  • An Event Host and plenty of team support to help you find your way – with a few, fun PR-friendly networking opportunities and surprises thrown in because of course!

Ooh saucy! The Power Moves Summit is an energizing, inspiring full day of information, access to experts and career/biz planning tailored specifically for PR practitioners looking to make a splash in 2021. It’s interactive and real – meaning we go beyond just industry chit – chat to equip you with the knowledge and strategies that you can apply immediately to make shifts in your business and career trajectory – if you so wish! 

It’s only ONE DAY – and on a Friday (even better!), so you can block off the time as a little retreat for yourself, and head into the weekend revitalized, refreshed and ready for Monday. You’re getting LIVE in-depth Q&A panels, small group networking breakouts, motivational mindset-focused masterclasses, and expert-led sessions that focus on increasing your confidence and cashflow – all for less than your average Postmates order, and well, we think that’s a PRetty sweet deal. 

Think of it this way – if you had been waiting months to go back to your favorite restaurant  and just got word patio dining was open – would you ask for water and order the best salad on the menu or go for the full experience, the chef’s special, the perfect cocktail to go with and a super yummy dessert?

Well, consider the Chef’s special your full hour-long mentor session, your cocktail our exclusive PRe-Part and dessert all the recordings and slides.




You know what’s powerful? Getting a seat at the table to listen in on the actually conversations industry leaders and experts are having – and bringing that awareness into your cover letters and interviews. We would EAT that up (and suggest you do so as a means to learn more about the industry and position yourself as a top candidate)

Well, the first thing to remember is that you decide how to think about and participate in anything you sign up for (and show up for). We are never “done” in this industry – there is much to learn and reflect upon and this is a smart and affordable way to get some direct face time with your peers and broaden your network – and mind. don’t know everything about online business. None of us do! There’s still so much to learn and this is a great way (also read as: affordable way) to learn new strategies and tactics. And if 2020 has taught us anything it’s that we have to flexible and open to new ideas – so come with an open mind and you’re sure to leave inspired and grateful you carved out this time to think critically about where you are headed.  

Already have a few meetings on your calendar? Well you can absolutely join us for part of the day (it’s far more effective and fun to be a part of the live event. You’ll receive login access after the event so that everything is easy to watch in one spot. If you’ve would like to upgrade an existing ticket to VIP Ticket you can do so right here.
