    Event Kickoff


    TRACK 1: Charmaine Hammond

    Collaboration Makes The World Turn

    Everyone says that it’s not what you know, but who you know that makes or breaks your success. The truth is, the magic of human work appears inside of collaboration and the truly successful businesses allow that bit of magic to shine through in their marketing and networking. Charmaine is bringing the how-to of collaboration magic to this workshop, and you will leave with a To-Done list that scales your reach, highlights your connections, and monetizes the power of your network.


    TRACK 2: Darrell Amy

    Working Like a Well-Oiled Machine

    Entrepreneurs understand: the growth of the company depends on how well different departments work together, even if they are only composed of a few people. But a company that isn’t connected works inefficiently and often loses sales and leads to the gaps between departments. Darrell will walk you through bridging the gaps, so that your sales, marketing, and fulfillment departments communicate to create repeat customers and stop losing sales between departments.



    Afternoon Sessions

    Lou Diamond:*

    Connection is important to your business (In more ways than one!), but it doesn’t happen overnight. Like weightlifting requires hitting the gym, connecting requires practice and exercise. In this workshop, Lou will not only educate and empower you to understand what engages and connects your audience and team, but walk you through multiple exercises to stretch those connection muscles and enable you to become the Master Connector and leader you need to be in today’s competitive world.


    A Few of the Connecting Core Exercises from this Workshop:

    Connectworking WarmUp
    Stretching the Connecting Core Muscles
    Toning Your Empathy
    Achieving the ‘Fearless Mindset’
    Flexing Your ’Super Why’
    Disclaimer Warning: Each of these exercises may result in closing business faster, growing customer contracts, and making happier employees

    *Lou's workshop will be the only workshop run at this time of the day





    TRACK 1: Rob Wicall

    Creating Impactful Connections Through Authenticity - Why Impactful Connections Mean So Much

    Impactful brands (and therefore long-term sustainability for businesses) are built upon the authentic personality represented, and the connections made with potential customers. But one of the greatest struggles entrepreneurs encounter in marketing is identifying the disconnects between the intended brand, and the brand perceived by our audience, prospects, and clients. This workshop? Starting with the end in mind and working backward, Rob will take you through the steps to build a brand of connection through authenticity in order to produce long-term sustainability for your business growth.


    TRACK 2: Kelly Ruta

    Unlock the Power of Your Subconscious Mind

    Entrepreneurs invest hours of effort and energy in putting to rest the doubts, fears, and negative mental chatter that, unfortunately, is stirred up every time a new level of growth is achieved. Instead of working you through the fluffy vision board tactics used by most mindset experts, Kelly will teach you how to tap into your subconscious in five steps that will allow you to reprogram your upper limits every single time. The results of this workshop? You’ll receive the tools to navigate the mental blocks every time you hit a new growth-level with ease and speed.

    Shifting Perspectives, Creating Growth


  • “When I’m looking for a workshop or a conference to attend,

    I’m looking for three separate things and

    the way they come together. I’m looking for application,

    inspiration, and connection with others of my tribe!

    That sweet spot right in the middle,

    that’s where [The Grow Retreat] is taking place!”

    Effective as of September 6th, 2019
    We have prepared this Privacy Notice to explain how, why, and when we collect data from you to provide targeted advertising services for our clients, and your rights in respect of this data. If you have additional questions please feel free to use the Contact Form at the bottom of this page.
    Visitors to this site may have a cookie placed in their browser by a third party provider (such as AdRoll) for targeted advertising purposes.  
    We may collect some or all of the following information: IP Addresses, cookie identifiers, pixels, end-user website activity. 
    This information is used exclusively by the algorithm of our provider & not available to us individually. 
    Please note that this Privacy Notice does not apply to data we collect when you visit other Grow Disrupt sites including but not limited to www.GrowDisrupt.com or www.TheStephanieScheller.com
    We do not share, distribute or sell your information.
    We may collect the following information for the following purposes:
    Activity on Advertisers’ Digital Properties: This is data about your browsing activity on the Advertiser's website or application. For example, which pages you visited and when, what items were clicked on a page, how much time was spent on a page, whether you downloaded a white paper on a business to business (“B2B”) website, what items you placed into your online shopping cart, what products were purchased and the price of the products purchased.
    Device and browser information: This is technical information about the device or browser you use to access the Advertiser's Digital Property. For example, your device's IP address, cookie string data, operating system, and (in the case of mobile devices) your device type, and mobile device's identifier (such as the Apple IDFA or Android Advertising ID, and any other unique identifier that may be assigned to the mobile device).
    Ad data: This is data about the online ads we have served (or attempted to serve) to you. For example, how many times an ad has been served to you, what page the ad appeared on, and whether you clicked on or otherwise interacted with the ad. This data includes information about how well our clients’ ads and campaigns have performed, whether on our platform or on other platforms.
    Data from Advertising Partners: This is data that we lawfully receive from other digital advertising companies that we work with (“Advertising Partners”) to help us deliver ads to you and recognize you across browsers and devices. This may include pseudonymous advertiser identifiers (meaning identifiers that help identify your browser or device, but do not directly identify you as a person) which some Advertisers or other third party Advertising Platforms choose to share with us – for example, your "Customer ID" with an Advertiser, a pseudonymous identifier (such as a cookie) associated with a hashed version of your email address, or demographic data such as age range. We may work with our Advertisers and Advertising Partners to synchronize their unique, pseudonymous identifiers to our own to enable us to more accurately recognise a particular unique browser or device and the advertising interests associated with it.
    Shopping Information. Some Advertisers provide us with information about their customers’ shopping habits, including transactional information, product codes, and check-out activity (along with browsing information that we collect). This information may come from their websites or other transactional information they (or their service providers) maintain. We generally use this information to help us better target, personalize, and measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.
    Information We Receive in Our Corporate Capacity. We also collect information from our own customers and those who visit our website(s). To learn more about how we collect and use that information, please see our Website Privacy Notice.
    How We Use the Data We Collect  
    We use this data to help our Advertisers identify and serve ads to you that are more relevant to you. We also use this data to operate, improve and enhance our services including enhancing the data points we or our Advertising Partners have about a particular user, browser, or device to serve the most relevant ads to you and, in turn, improve performance of an Advertiser’s ad campaigns. Specifically, we use this data for:
    Targeting: Selecting ads that are more likely to be relevant to you based on the interests previously associated with your device and the time of day you may be most interested in viewing these specific ads. For example, we may show you ads for your favorite shopping site (or similar sites we think you may like) during lunch or commute hours.
    Frequency capping: Making sure that you don't see the same ad too many times.
    Sequencing: If you are being served a sequence of ads, making sure we show you the right ad next in the sequence.
    Cross-device matching: Identifying different devices that are likely to be associated with you so that ads can be targeted, capped and sequenced across those devices, and so that campaign effectiveness can be measured and analyzed. For example, cross-device matching helps us NOT show you ads for the shoes you were looking at on your phone but already purchased on your tablet. Instead we’ll try to show you ads for an upcoming triathlon where you can put those shoes to work. It also helps us match devices so we can honor your opt-out choices across all devices we know are connected to the opted-out cookie. You may opt-out of being targeted in the above “cross-device” and “cross-channel” ways by employing the respective opt-out techniques we describe in the “Your Choices and Opting-Out of Targeted Ads” section below.
    Attribution: Monitoring when, where, and at what price we served certain ads on behalf of an Advertiser so that we can measure our influence on the marketing results of the Advertiser’s campaigns and overall marketing strategy. For example, being able to measure if a certain ad campaign (the ads shown and to whom they were shown) actually sold more soccer balls for ACME Soccer Ball Co.
    Reporting: Providing Advertisers insights into how their ads are performing and gain insights into their customers. Reporting may include ad metrics such as impressions, clicks, and conversions (however the Advertiser may define a “conversion” such as, for example, a sale or a white paper download, or a correlation to an actual or inferred sale, site visit or store visit). This data allows an Advertiser to determine if an ad is not performing well (customers are not clicking on it), so that the Advertiser will be able to see that data and update the ad (perhaps with a better deal!). With respect to specific cookie data, we limit reporting to cookie activity on the specific Advertiser’s website and which ads were shown, whether there was engagement with those ads.
    Conducting Our Corporate Operations. As to information we collect in our corporate capacity – our own B2B lists of customers and prospective customers – we use that information to conduct our business operations and communications.
    To Opt Out:
    On ads served by AdRoll for our advertisers, look for an AdChoices logo (the blue triangle) in the corner of the ad. Click the logo to learn more about interest-based advertising, who served the ad, and manage your ad options. You can also opt out of seeing personalized ads from AdRoll (and other companies) using the NAI opt out tool here.  Please note you will still see ads even if you opt out, but they will not be personalized by AdRoll. For more information please see our privacy notice here.
