It’s Time to Evolve.

Innovators, Changemakers and Thought Leaders.

Attending The Visionary Creative Roundtable can be the beginning of your rise to becoming a thought leader brand inspiring change and innovation in your own industry. We are drawn together by our shared values and vision.

We feel most alive in the work we do in the world when we are birthing ideas, taking action, seeing them through to results and observe how they impact others for good.

It’s the best feeling to bring VALUE to people’s lives and companies where we had a hand in their success through our genuine leadership online and offline.

That is a Visionary with a Purpose.

This is why you are here.

The one-day creative roundtable is for high-level thinkers, innovators, and thought leaders of all kinds desiring to engage, interact and learn together how to make more meaningful impact locally, nationally and globally.

We all have a deep desire to impact the world with our ideas and vision where everyone flourishes and elevates.

When you bring together innovators, humanitarians, high level thinkers and change-makers, we have a very powerful force for good.

this is what thhe creative roundtable promises.

You will experience first-hand the beginning process of IDEATION: the creative process of generating, developing, and communicating new ideas with a group of like-minds to kick-off development and actualization.

There are leaders and there are those who lead. True leaders inspire. Their existence is not to manage people; but to inspire action and change. Thought Leaders are ready to break out as the go-to person in a niche – break out of the pack.

Few reasons why you may be ready to break away from the pack to be a thought leader:

Intuitively you are ready for a bigger game. You’ve grown out of your current status or interest and want more meaning in your life, career or business.
Career or brand reinvention.
Affect more lives on a regional, national or global level.
Seeking stronger leadership skills for higher impact and results
Done with hiding and finally ready to take a stand on a long held cause/passion and now want the courage to make it happen.
Creative renewal
Discontent of any kind on any level small or large
Desiring to up-level your business; but unsure of the direction
Clarity of your genius zone & ability to tap into it
Career or artistic boredom

Thought leader premise


Genuine, impactful, and inspiring brands are willing to “step out and be heard” even if it feels uncertain and vulnerable. We are agents of change.

The much talked saturation online began about five years ago. It is here now in full force. We are in need of your leadership to implement change on small and large levels in your own industry and that of humanity. This is a thought leader.

It began with a rumbling in 2015 when leaders, icons, and powerful influencers of many kinds were predicting the masses were headed for a big shift in how people show up online (and offline) and through their brands. Why?

The bubble is about to burst they claimed. Congestion. Diluted messaging. Too much noise online. There is no barrier to entry to be called an expert. The questions were flying “How do you stand above the noise and be heard?”

The answer: Change the conversation.

This is where the collective consciousness began to shift. The discussions online and offline took on a deeper purpose replacing the everyday surfaced content that was defined as too commonplace (and boring).

Everyone was looking the same. Brands were duplicates of each other; just different names.

Thousands took notice and the shift started a movement. Branding solution: Be a change agent.

Influencers/thought leaders are the informed opinion leaders and the go-to people in their field of expertise.

They are trusted sources who move and inspire people with innovative ideas; turn ideas into reality, and show how to replicate their success. Here we are. You’ve been chosen to lead.

There are leaders and there are those who lead. True leaders inspire. Their existence is not to manage people; but to inspire action and change. Thought Leaders are ready to break out as the go-to person in a niche – break out of the pack.

Attending The Visionary Creative Roundtable is the beginning of your rise to becoming a thought leader brand inspiring change and innovation in your own industry.

During our day together we’ll discuss as you learn to apply my Signature 7 Empowering Stages of Developing into an Enlightened Visionary Who Leads to Inspire.

What you’ll learn:


Perception vs. Reality

Identify the hidden roadblocks. How to turn your tech-driven numbness, detachment, and harriedness into authentic stimulating connections and living.

Refine your presence

You know you are capable of raising your game in how present you are during conversations with people. The result is genuine connection and the recipient feeling heard and important. Be the role model of “being present” by learning the power of Brian Grazer’s “curiosity conversations” to build your leadership reputation.

Identifying genius zone talents and committing your loyalty to them will accurately result in higher creativity, higher revenues/income and much deeper fulfillment.
