Build meaningful relationships with like-minded leaders through one-on-one speed coaching, quality face time with purpose-driven leaders, and even interest-based social events.
The Small Giants Community’s keystone event, our annual summit, is a time for the community to come together, learn from one another, and strengthen relationships.
We all know the age-old notion that the journey is just as important as the destination. So, add a stop in your route to our annual summit for meaningful relationships and learnings. Pack a notebook and your curiosity, but leave the business cards at home – it’s a time to make business ideals, not do business deals.
Born out of the book Small Giants: Companies that Choose to be Great Instead of Big by Bo Burlingham, the community was co-founded by Bo and Paul Spiegelman to bring the pages’ concepts to life. The Small Giants Community Summit was the first in-person event to be held by and for the community and remains a favorite for established and emerging leaders alike. Over the years, the event has evolved to adapt to feedback and circumstances, but we always enjoy getting to see familiar faces as well as meet new ones, and we like to call Detroit our home base whenever in-person events are possible.
When does registration start?
Registration for the summit starts in October and is available until end of March or when tickets sell out.
What’s included in my ticket?
The Small Giants Summit is unique in that we hang out together for a couple of days, learning and connecting during the day + sharing meals in the evening. Therefore, your ticket includes the conference portion, evening receptions + cool bus rides between sessions!
Can I invite other colleagues?
Sure! We have two tracks and content that caters to two audiences including founders/CEOs + emerging leaders. Three or more colleagues and you can get a discount.
I’m new to the Community & summit, what should I expect?
A friendly and open and honest experience! Small Giants are open and incredibly welcoming. Every seat assignment and experience is thoughtfully curated so you’ll get to meet a lot of people and you’ll get to connect on a deep level.
