If you think Colorado Springs is an unusual location for a legal conference, you’re right. Most estate planning and elder law conferences, workshops and boot camps are held in huge conference centers near major airports in cities like Las Vegas, Orlando and New York.
Why host a major legal event in Colorado Springs?
Think back, if you will, to the events you have attended in those major venues. What do you recall? What specifics do you remember? What did you learn? Or are your memories a bit hazy, clouded by the chaos of navigating modern air travel in major airports – the long lines at security, the treks through congested terminals, the search for the rental car counter? Do you remember how tired you were at the end of each day spent listening to one lecture after another? How much fun did you have? How much time did you have to reflect on what you had learned … in fact, how much did you actually learn and retain?
What if you dreamed bigger?
What if, instead of rushing through crowded airports, grabbing a Starbucks for breakfast, and packing your schedule with 30 hours of CLE in three days … what if you slowed down? What if you broke away from your routine, spent some time outside, maybe an afternoon at a working ranch? What if you calmed your mind, lowered your heart rate, and had time to reflect on what you are learning as an experience?
This is our hope for you at The Summit 2017.
We hope the time you spend with us at The Summit will do more than just grow your practice. We hope it will change your life. We hope you will find a new beginning, a retreat of heart and mind that sustains you long after you leave. We hope you will experience learning in a new way – with reflection, time to process, to integrate and to make real change.
Research shows that we retain very little of what we learn in the fast-paced settings of the typical conference classroom. True learning occurs upon reflection, facilitated by experience.
How do you build a Break-Out Practice?
First, you have to break out. Break out from your daily routine, the pressure, the cell phone, the conference room and the classroom.
This time it's different
Of course, you’re going to spend time in the classroom at The Summit. You’re going to be learning about legal sales and marketing and how to grow and manage a Break-Out law firm.
But this time, you’re going to remember. You will have time to reflect, to breathe, to experience and process your learning. And you’ll leave refreshed, with a written action plan and the energy to make it happen.
Won’t you join us? It’s a new day!
