The Thought Leadership Summit is two packed days of networking, discussions, and powerful training.

Don't just take our word for it, hear what last year's attendees have to say.




Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to transition our in-person conference to a virtual learning opportunity.
We will have three days of live-streamed content on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, August 25th-27th. Each day’s sessions will run from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM Pacific Time
Sessions will cover front to back fundraising event planning along with information about virtual and hybrid events. Please refer to our full schedule of sessions listed above.
Absolutely! We are working on building out exactly how all this will work and will be updating everyone soon. At this point, we plan to use a conference mobile app to facilitate networking, message boards, and schedule sharing.
     2020 Event Registration Has Closed
If you choose to register for the Virtual Thought Leadership Summit, you will receive the link to our unique streaming site in advance of the conference. We will be hosting speakers and panels, Q&A, and “hands-on” sessions throughout the three-day conference.
Enjoy sharing your knowledge? We want to hear from you, our fantastic client! Share a presentation with other Thought Leaders. Selected speakers will have their ticket covered by Greater Giving.

Thanks for your interest in speaking at the 2020 Thought Leadership Virtual Summit. All sessions have been filled for this year, but please check back to apply for the 2021 sessions!
Our 2021 event will be in Portland, Oregon August 10th-12th. We hope you’ll consider joining us in person next year.
We’d love to hear from you. The best way to reach us is via email at
