2020 Nominees

The virtual event will also feature a keynote by Heather Whelpley: Creating Your Own Rules for Success.

Whose definition of success are you striving for? Does it belong to you – or to your parents, your organization, culture, or what you wanted earlier in your life? It’s time to know what YOU want and WHY. Key takeaways include:
  • Understanding the rules you’re playing by now – and if they still make sense for you
  • Redefining success on your own terms
  • Creating a new set of rules that align to your values, goals, and the person you want to be

Event Bags

The first 100 registrants will receive a pre-event bag with a celebratory beverage and some sweet swag. All attendees will receive a copy of Whelpley's book, An Overachiever's Guide To Breaking The Rules: How To Let Go Of Perfect and Live Your Truth. Bags will be available for pickup at International Market Square (275 Market Street, Minneapolis, MN 55405) prior to the event and details will be sent separately to participants.

Depending on when you register, your book may need to be shipped directly to you, separate from the event bag you will pick up in person with other event swag. Please enter your current preferred mailing address when you register. This is especially important if it is different from your profile/business address.
