• How Our Events are Designed for ADHD Entrepreneurs

    We get it! It's a big claim...


    Here's SOME of the things we do that make our events especially impactful for ADHD entrepreneurs!

    Psychology-Based Reminders Leading Up

    Some of us need info WAY in advance...

    Some of us don't bother looking at the info until right before the event...even though it was nice to know we HAD it so we could shut that part of our brain off!


    So we send reminders and updates well in advance AND right before the event.


    These reminder emails are carefully designed to make them easy to read, and include psychology-based triggers to help make it easier for you to be on time for the killer opening that is designed to set the stage for the entire event!

    Speakers who pass RIGOROUS interviews

    Content is great...but frankly, our guests have heard a LOT of good stuff about how to grow their businesses. We're constantly looking for topics that haven't been rehashed from a hundred stages.


    Beyond that though, we're well aware that content isn't enough. Our speakers are performers who understand the art of pacing, delivery, and threading psychological triggers throughout their presentation to help create action from what they teach.


    Oh yeah, and we ban sales pitches at our events.

    They're just distracting for us!

    Carefully constructed room layouts

    This covers a LOT...and we aren't going to give away ALL our secrets...but as a glimpse...


    We're very intentional about how many chairs are allowed around each table, and where the tables are placed in the room.


    We have a unique way to manage speaker time limits that actually helps them stay focused on our guests rather than counting down with a clock!


    Our venues are selected with design and aesthetics in mind to provide mild and comforting mental stimulation throughout the event.

    An Agenda Built For You

    There are two things we do with our agendas that make them particularly perfect for those with ADHD.


    First, Stephanie constructs and agenda of speaker energy that ebbs and flows throughout the day so your brain has time to rest, and then re-energize!


    Second, all of our events are broken out into Ideation and Implementation where the speakers are actually walking our guests through implementation onsite so that when they get back to the office, they don't have to figure out where to start!

    Intentional & Careful Stimulation of Senses

    We are extremely intentional about how we stimulate the senses. From our venue selection (as referenced above) to our custom event scent that supports both grounding and focus, but boasts vibrant and energizing elements.


    We select food with intention from snacks to meals.


    We are in the midst of building custom Muzak (music crafted around triggering specific moods and modes) for all aspects of our events from networking to workshops.

    Fidget Fulfillment

    We make sure that there are plenty of ways to keep your fingers engaged throughout the event so your brain can focus!


    From fidget toys in the swag bags, to games on the tables, plus pens that are specially chosen because they will make your brain SING when you write with them! (No joke...these pens are a legit point of contention when spouses and colleagues try to steal them after the event!).

    The Interview Process

    It may just be us, but Stephanie has always struggled with basic, open networking. It's hard to know where to start, or how to build substantial relationships.


    That's one of many reasons why every guest must got through a careful interview process with Stephanie herself. No exceptions.


    We want you to know that everyone in the room is worth talking to and someone you'll love connecting with so you can come in curious to get to know them!

    Carefully Avoided Over-Stimulation

    We don't believe in running a long event to break you down.


    Where other events put as many people onstage as possible in hopes that someone will appeal to you and you'll get value out of it and, by default, end up running a LONG event, we carefully select who takes our stage. We know you'll get more value out of a handful of carefully selected speakers than a plethora of overwhelm.


    Plus this way, we can end before dinner and you can have the whole evening to rest and reset!

    Privacy Policy
    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.
