Virtual Symposium 2022

https://youtu.be/us6Evlj8zPU Three days at our Virtual United Success symposium last May 2022 brought back the spark to us with exciting, meaningful content about turning the tables on cyber crime with Keith Raymond, the value of storytelling with Karin Kiesl, the emerging Metaverse with Annelize Booysen, and two visits to member sites to learn about a large industrial valve manufacturer, Invincible Valves, the business of member Pam Duplessis in South Africa, and Brightloops, creator of clothing from yarn made from discarded clothing in the Netherlands, the business of member Ellen Mensink. Beautifully was setup for us beautifully by Little Big Productions from South Africa with our intrepid emcee, member Alexandra Yung. We even had a surprise visit by Sophia the Robot, first non-human to be recognized by the UN. We now know why we really need to meet in person in 2023.

Italy 2015

The Rome Symposium was both a unique historical journey into the Roman past and a personal journey focused on business growth. The Confidant Council sessions offered a unique opportunity to share current business challenges within the trusted group of United Success members. Other members share immediate and insightful input and provide new and refreshing perspectives. This valuable deep dive into our businesses was of course enriched by Italian cuisine and the outgoing spirit of the Roman people.
