Sage Summit 2017 Tour - US Session Update

Posted by Ashley Lemus on Mon, May 22, 2017 @ 02:45 PM

*** EVENT UPDATE ***

hyatt oc Sage summit 2017 US session postponed.jpg

Earlier this month we announced that Sage Summit will be hosting a local event in Orange County during the first week of June.

 

However, the highly anticipated Sage Summit 2017 US Session has been postponed.

 

Sage has been hosting annual events for customers and partners for years, so the concept of Sage Summit is certainly not a new one.

However, this year they're doing things a little bit differently. Rather than hosting one major event for the entire year, as they've done in the past, Sage has decided to provide break-out sessions in 8 additional cities to allow easier access to the event with more specific product demonstrations and interactions. These events will be largely known as Sage Sessions!

2017's US event was scheduled to be hosted at the Hyatt Regency OC in Orange County, CA, on Tuesday, June 6th.

However, due to a number of projects in the works, Sage felt it would be best to delay the event until mid-August or September, in order to assure the highest quality of content provided to event attendees.

 

But don't worry!

A delay like this only allows for more time to get excited!

 

The single-day Sage Session will focus on local-marketing specifics that allow one-of-a-kind learning, training, and networking experiences for all Sage customers. With endless connection potentials, multiple learning sessions to choose from, and an inspiring keynote address, this event is sure to provide new and innovative ways to grow your business while enjoying a fun and unique interaction with Sage.

 

With 20 learning sessions this is an event you don't want to miss!

 

Where:   Orange County, CA

When:    Date To Be Determined

 

Registration will open soon,

so be sure to sign up for event notifications!

I'd love to receive event updates!

Awesome Small Business Advice From The Sage Summit Celebrity Speakers

Posted by Ashley Lemus on Tue, Jul 19, 2016 @ 01:32 PM

Have you happened to see the lineup of business-savvy celebrities that will be speaking at Sage Summit? We’ve seen some great influencers in the past, but with people like Sir Richard Branson, Daymond John, Ashton Kutcher, Zooey Deschanel and more, we know this year’s conference is going to be the best yet!

 

Sage_Summit_Speaker_Lineup.jpg

 
 
Sage Summit 2016 is officially less than a week away, so we decided to help you gear up for the fabulous event with some of the best advice that each of these game-changing celebs have to offer, as it relates to what each will be discussing at the conference. 
 
 
 

Need to get better at branding?

Speakers Sir Richard Branson and Sage CEO, Stephen Kelly have you covered!

They'll discuss: “The magical Virgin business model applied: Architecting a brand that’s built to last.”

When it comes to branding, can you think of a better person to learn from than Sir Richard Branson? The founder of Virgin Group has made Virgin one of the most respected and recognized brands on this planet. His sage advice? “The brands that will thrive in the coming years are the ones that have a purpose beyond profit.”

 

Looking to perfect your investment pitch?

Speakers Daymond John and Robert Herjavec know all about that!

These "Sharks" are scheduled to discuss: “Sink or swim: Surviving the sharks at the investment pitch.”

Having been pitched to a zillion times, the two highly acclaimed “Sharks” from ABC’s “Shark Tank” know the best ways to influence an investor to take their chance on a small business. At Summit, they will break down, piece-by-piece, what investors look for and want to hear. In the meantime, think about these smart tidbits: Daymond John reminds us that “An entrepreneur must pitch a potential investor for what the company is worth, as well as sell the dream on how much of a profit can be made.” And Robert Herjavec’s states, “When the bullets are flying and the bombs are dropping, the ability to zig and zag is far more valuable than the capacity to figure out the caliber of the bullets and what kinds of lanes are flying overhead.”

 

Want to boost the success of your business?

Speakers Ashton Kutcher and CEO of Kickstarter, Yancey Strickler are start-up superstars!

Learn how “Values over valuation: Building a mission-driven business.” will help drive your business to success.

Every entrepreneur and small business leader knows the highs and lows of building a business. Believe it or not, Ashton Kutcher and Yancey Strickland are no strangers to that. Capitalize on their experiences and best practices that each has learned along the way. As successful as Ashton is today, he reminds us, “I fail frequently – I just try to keep it quiet.”

 

Desire a business plan that is more socially conscious?

Speakers Zooey Deschanel and Gwyneth Paltrow do too!

Discussing “The giving economy: Why doing good is great for business” will give you a better idea of how charitable acts are beneficial to business.

Consumers desire products and services from businesses who go above and beyond to give back to the world. Learn why businesses, even smaller ones, are helping those beyond their own target audiences. Actress Zooey Deschanel, co-founder of “Hello Giggles,” strove to build a lifestyle site aimed to create a positive place for young women. One of her more popular mantras, “You have to keep reminding yourself it’s not about the money,” is just one of her more popular mantras. 

 

With all of these powerfully encouraging words of wisdom we can't wait to see what else Sage Summit has in store!  And we hope to see you there!

 

Unable to join us in Chicago?  We've got you covered.  Ignite your passion right from the convenience of your desk.  The Sage Summit Live event provides a portion of what you would find at the Chicago in-person event — gain the knowledge, insight, and connections to help drive your business forward.

7 Reasons to Attend a Conference

Posted by Ashley Lemus on Thu, Jul 07, 2016 @ 12:30 PM

WIIFM. Heard of it? It’s an acronym that stands for “What’s in it for me?”

As a small business owner, barraged with an endless array of offers, deals and pitches, you most likely ponder it all the time. Especially when it comes to conferences. There are a bunch to choose from, and sure, part of you doesn’t feel like bothering at all, but you really should. Why? You can answer that with yet another acronym: ROI!

 Attending a conference can benefit your organization in a major way!

Attending a quality conference can yield quite the return on investment, you'll wonder why you ever considered not attending in the first place!

 

So, invest wisely in the right conference and here’s what’s in it for you:

 

Learning

Yeah yeah, so this is the most common reason heard for why anyone should attend a conference, but it's true! The right conference can build your knowledge-base faster and easier than ever. The bonus? There’s a lot more fun involved.  Learn this stuff with your peers–probably in a cool city you’ve never visited before. Educated AND entertained. Not a bad deal. 

Networking

What better way to grow your professional network than by attending the right conference? Not only is it the perfect way to get to know and meet new people who work in your industry, or potential customers but all those people you’re connected to on social media — you can finally meet them face-to-face.

Celebrity speakers

A good conference can be made exceptionally great if there are renown keynote speakers in the event line-up. After all, who doesn’t love valuable, thought-provoking insights from the likes of Sir Richard Branson, Daymond John or Robert Herjavec? And by the way, all three of these inspirational leaders will be speaking at Summit

Social media

Look around at a conference and you’ll see lots of attendees posting and tweeting quotes, stats, facts and photos. And using conference hashtags (like “#SageSummit” for example), allows everyone to be a part of the online conversation. Joining the conversation will get your name out there and people WILL notice. Especially posting a selfie of you and Sir Richard Branson. Talk about trending! 

Expand resources

Not only will attending a conference allow you to kick your social networking into high gear, you’ll also get access to new technologies, industry tools, applications, publications, methodologies and fancy techniques — all conveniently under one roof. A quality conference can help you fill up your professional ‘tool shed’ so that your small business can run like a dream. You may even be able to recruit a new employee or negotiate an amazing deal. 

Wonderful write-off

Oh, yes. The best reason: Conference expenses are tax-deductible. So, as long as the event benefits and advances your business, you can write off the costs of the conference, seminars, travel (airfare, car, taxi, etc.), lodging, meals, even your dry cleaning! Just be sure to keep good records and all of your receipts.  And let's just say, if you’ve been itching to go to Chicago, the Summit conference offers you the perfect opportunity.

Fun factor

All work and no play makes for… well, you know how the saying goes. Don’t be that person. A conference is the ultimate way to combine both work and pleasure. In fact, having fun is a proven stress-reliever. Not only that, but attending a conference may be exactly what you need to reignite your enthusiasm for the work that you do.

 

 

Convinced? Great!  It’s the largest gathering of small and medium-sized businesses and it’s open to everyone. Don’t miss out and come see what all the fuss is about!

Ashton Kutcher - Sage Summit Speaker Spotlight

Posted by Ashley Lemus on Fri, Jun 17, 2016 @ 04:13 PM

Ashton Kutcher

Actor, entrepreneur, tech investor, and producer.

Ashton Kutcher's venture fund has invested in tech companies including Airbnb, Spotify, Uber, Flipboard, Foursquare, and Shazam.

 

Ashton Kutcher's venture fund has invested in tech companies including Airbnb, Spotify, Uber, Flipboard, Foursquare, and Shazam.

Although we all know Mr. Kutcher as the star of hit TV shows such as "That '70s Show", "Two and a Half Men" and most recently the Netflix original series, "The Ranch" he has also served as executive producer and co-creator of many popular series and movies such as "Punk'd", "Beauty and the Geek", and "No Strings Attached".

However, the entertainment industry is not the only area in which Kutcher has experienced success.  In 2011, Kutcher has invested in multiple tech companies including Airbnb, Spotify, Uber, Flipboard, SoundCloud, Foursquare, Shazam, and Houzz with his venture fund, A-Grade Investments, which he co-created with Ron Burkle and Guy Oseary. In 2014, Kutcher and Oseary founded another fund, Sound Ventures, which has invested in many more companies.

Additionally, Kutcher was named one of TIME magazine’s 2010 “100 Most Influential People in the World” followed by Vanity Fair's 2011 New Establishment List, which identifies the top 50 of an innovative new breed of buccaneering visionaries, engineering prodigies, and entrepreneurs, the following year.  In both 2010 and 2014 Ashton was named one of Forbes magazine’s “World’s Most Powerful Celebrities,” as well as one of Fast Company magazine’s “Most Creative People.”

Along with all of these marvelous achievements, Kutcher is also the co founder of Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children, which drives technology innovation to fight the sexual exploitation of children.  This organization, along with his many other achievements, make him the perfect candidate to speak at Sage Summit 2016! Partnered with entrepreneur, Yancey Strickler, Ashton will discuss how building a purpose-driven business is the key to success.
