Most conferences are painfully boring

🥱…and yet still very expensive 💰😱

Have we got your attention? If so, keep reading, we’ll tell you more.

In a world of smart-person-on-stage-lectures-for-an-hour, we wanted to do something fun, educational, and real, specifically for speakers. So, we created a playfully serious gathering designed for speakers, both seasoned and brand new. It’s structured, but unscripted. It’s light-hearted and fun, but every attendee is challenged to pull their biggest ideas out of hiding.

In this full-day event, we are bringing together established and aspiring professional speakers for a chance to learn, to play, and to dream BIG. We’re going to put new and seasoned speakers into a totally unique environment, so they can see that, not only are they not alone, but they have an abundance of support from the NSA community to think bigger, dream larger, and have a safe space to play with their most ambitious ideas.

Try to imagine an event that is…

Instantly familiar but still unlike anything you’ve ever attended.

Imagine the combination of networking and an educational event. Imagine that the networking is designed for introverts and extroverts alike and crafted to form deep connections rather than surface level small talk. Imagine that the educational part skips the experts and the lectures, and instead invites everyone to do both the learning and the teaching. The purpose of the Play Day Summit is to ensure that every speaker walks away understanding two very important ideas:

1) You are not alone

2) You have an even bigger idea inside of you, waiting to get out

Aside from feeling like it is you against the world in a battle for gigs, one of the lonelier parts of being a speaker, is working through your big idea by yourself. What tends to make matters worse, is trying to overcome all of the doubts in your own head. You know the ones: They tell you your idea is too big, too risky, and that you should stick to playing it safe. These are the ideas you dream about but wouldn’t dream to actually pitch. So, how do we get people to feel less alone, and to dream bigger, all while having fun and making new friends with other speakers?
