Where You’ll Find Our Speakers

Meet Your Host

Hey! I’m September, a business podcast host and a podcast guesting strategist.  I help clients leverage podcast guest appearances for marketing and promotion of their business.  But it is just part of the story. 

As much as I am all about the power of podcast guesting, I believe that every change-maker and thought-leader – authors, entrepreneurs, coaches or service providers – should combine earned media and speaking opportunities into their own media campaign that puts them on the map and keeps their name coming up in front of the people who need them.

I created this summit to help you figure out how to do that. How to bust out of the social-media-posting grind and break through to more authoritative stages and media where you can build your portfolio of client-convincing media content and credibility.

Frequenty Asked Questions

Why is the summit free?

Answer: It’s free because I want to share the collective wisdom of these media experts with ambitious entrepreneurs – those that know that marketing strictly within the social media landscape is a dead-end and who want to go bigger and soar higher – to give them the vision and a rapid path to leveling up, to see an alternative to the social media hamster-wheel we’ve all been sold on by the influencers and gurus. Knowing your options is power!

What is the difference between the free access and the other passes?


The free registration pass gives you access to the community, every one of the 20 speaker sessions over the 3 days, post-session Q&As, downloadable worksheets, any live events within the community, and 36 hour access to session replays.

The paid All-access Power Pass offers all that, daily ‘after-hours wrapup sessions’ with speakers, plus lifetime access to the content, premium bonus content from the speakers – e-books, training, courses, etc – that they usually charge for, and – for VIP Access, there is an additional day of interactive Power Panel sessions with experts to go deeper on the strategy and how-to of creating your own media campaign that skyrockets your business.

Is this live or recorded?

Answer:  The summit event is indeed live. Each one of our speakers will be with us live and able to respond to your questions.  The recordings will be available to everyone for 36 hours; paid access pass holders have lifetime access to recording.

How long will I have access to the replays?

Answer:  As a free pass holder, you will have access to each of the sessions for 36 hours. Paid pass holders will have lifetime access.

I have a new business; does this apply to me?
Getting media coverage can actually be a powerful way for new businesses to really get off the ground! The necessary element to making this work is having your core business concepts, products and messaging firmly established. After all, media is all about the message. For some entrepreneurs, like consultants, they may be ready to harness media immediately – and often do to build their brand.

Either way, it is never too early to know what your options are – and who better to learn from than an array of experts!

Does this apply to authors?

Getting media exposure, stage appearances, PR and publicity for you and your book is as good as it gets!  Learning how to make this happen can take you to brand new heights

Will this work for product-based business as well as service-based businesses?
There is no one-size-fits-all formula for the best combination of media for a given company or industry but if your kind of business has ever been successfully marketed with advertising then you can bet this will work for your business.
Is this approach strictly for extroverts?
Not at all! Some of our speakers are actually introverts themselves and have figured out the best way for them to comfortably utilize media and speaking to position themselves and grow their business.
Is this to replace social media marketing for my business?
No – to expand upon it and make it work even better for you! You can still post and engage on social media; you’ll just have much more authoritative, convincing content to be posting and sharing. In the meantime, all your media and speaking appearances is being promoted by others on a wider variety of channels, getting you and your business in front of more people than you’d reach in years of posting.
Will I get my questions answered?
We will do our best to get all questions answered after each expert session and in the chat afterwards.
Will all the speakers get my email address?

Absolutely not! The only person you’ll get emails from after you sign up is me, September. That’s so you can get all the updates for the summit and all the links you’ll need. After the summit is over, you’ll continue to hear from me, but I endeavor to provide only value and relevant updates re: future live events with our speakers.  If you are not interested you can unsubscribe at any time.

As for the speakers, the only way your email address will be shared with them is if you opt-in for a freebie they promote or grab one of their bonuses offered in the Bonus Power Pack, which is part of the paid access passes. That way, you only hear from the people you really love and don’t have to worry about getting added to 20 email lists that you’re not interested in.

Learn more in our Privacy Policy.

I still have questions!

No problem! Email any questions to and we’ll get back to you within 1-2 business days.

It’s your time to…

3 days, 20 experts all gathered in one place to help you get the recognition, acclaim, and credibility that you need to level up and be seen as the go-to expert in your space.
