Elite Retreat 7 last week was really awesome. Â It’s the 7th event we have had in 6 years.Â It’s rare that I am humbled, Â but this event has become everything I ever dreamed and much more.
The event took place at the prestigious Clift Hotel in San Francisco.Â The night before the event started we hosted a open reception which was kind of like a meet and greet.
I want to thank our speakers for not only doing an excellent job sharing their own experiences, but sitting down with all the attendees and helping them with their issues.
This year’s speaker list – Michael Sprouse, Â Andy Liu, Â Colin Theriot, Matt Mickiewicz, Stephan Spencer, Greg Boser, Â Allen Baler,Â and especially my legal team from Fraser Stryker – our general council -Â Troy Meyerson, and chief litigator -Â Pat Cooper.
I would also like to give a shot out to our awesome sponsors:
- AzoogleAds – Plat Sponsor
- Godaddy – Gold Sponsor
- ShareaSale – iPad Sponsor
- Nerdy Shirts – Shirt Sponsor
- Fraser Stryker – Dinner Sponsor
- Affiliate.com – Breakfast Sponsor
- Affiliate Summit
We had a TON of goodies for attendees thanks to our sponsors!
We also had some great resources for attendees in the house – Â Founder/CEO of ShareaSale Brian Littleton, Â and c0-founder of the Affiliate Summit Missy Ward.Â Really great to have such internet marketing pioneers in the house!
I am super excited to watch the sessions. Â I missed all of them as I was working one-on-one with the attendees 😉
I was alsoÂ pleasantlyÂ surprisedÂ to have my friend Guy Kawasaki drop by and give a great talk, which really was a nice break from the intense sessions. Â Guy asked me many times what I wanted him to talk about… I said I wanted him off the cuff talking about whatever he wanted. Â He killed it. Â He is always a great speaker.
Guy brought his friend Yiying Lu (famous for drawing the Twitter Fail Whale and many other Silicon Valley stuff).
Also our team – Tigh, Â Cassie, Â Autumn and Matt did a great job!
This is the time I say that this is the last event we will ever have… I mean you guys have to be used to that, right? Â Well… It’s true to an extent. Â My promise is that unless I think we can outdo the last one, we will never have another event. Â Somehow we keep pulling it off. Â But the bar is SUPER high if we do decide to do another one ;).
