The Wellness Business Summit (WBS) is for ambitious, purpose-driven health, wellness and fitness professionals who want to be exposed to big ideas, cutting-edge business frameworks and to deeply connect with each other to grow a wildly profitable, impactful and fulfilling business.
Hey, it’s me Lori, founder and creator of The Wellness Business Summit
I am so glad you are here because what I am about to share with you is going to 
change the direction of your success...forever.
You see, over the last decade I grew my nutrition practice to 9 locations, I licensed a holistic weight loss program to over 30 locations in Canada and I simultaneously balanced my 7 figure online business while raising 2 creative and active kids.
Now, I truly believe that I accomplished all of this BECAUSE I stubbornly attended as many masterminds and coaching events as I could.
I collected success lessons everywhere I went and applied them quickly. I hoarded all the shortcuts, I stashed away all of my networking contacts and I copied the most effective online and offline strategies.
In an industry that is under constant and rapid evolution, it’s hard to stay ahead of the game BUT I did it….
...and I can show you how too.

It’s no secret that the health & wellness industry has dramatically GROWN & EVOLVED over the last decade – not only with how health & wellness businesses operate but also in the legislation that governs your scope of practice. It feels like every year we navigate around yet another roadblock! 
BUT, no matter how much legislation gets thrown our way, 
we continue to be one of the largest and most money-soaked industries around.

You know there is opportunity out there that is quickly passing you by.

You know that the health of your community is getting worse and you not only have the solutions but the passion too.
You are witnessing the global shift towards mindfulness, clean eating and body awareness and you are primed to harness it.
If the health and wellness industry is booming both online and offline and there is NO SHORTAGE of people to help, then WHY are so many smart and qualified practitioners, coaches and fitness professionals stuck, overwhelmed, burnt-out and... broke?

Now, let me get a little personal:
The WBS is my like 3rd baby (see my first two human children below). I’m glad you’re here because I can only imagine how frustrated, alone and pissed off you feel.
The WBS was born out of my own frustration.  
I was that nutritionist who after two years of trying to figure out how to make it all work, decided that the traditional model of working 1:1 with clients wasn’t going to work for me. So I changed the traditional model of working 1:1 with clients to working one-to-many (aka a group program) and my business blew up.  

Except that my impact and profitability was still capped by time and geographic boundaries.   

In May 2011 I made MY NO PLAN B DECISION that I was going to transform my life. So I flew to California to attend a live business building event. I sat in a room with people (mostly men) who thought like me, who wanted more out of life, who didn’t make excuses and the most impactful thing -- I was exposed to new business frameworks, new ways of doing things and so much possibility that I had never been aware of before.

In a matter of 2 days, I had a clear and concise path to follow that was laid out for me by people who have already succeeded in doing what I wanted to do. I no longer had to guess or figure it out on my own.

That ONE DECISION changed the trajectory of my life (and my family’s life). 

Fast forward just a few short years, I now run a multi 7-figure business with an amazing team, we have the honour of working with thousands of clients from all over the world, my workday ends at 2:55 pm. I take vacations where I don’t even have to check in AND the business still runs but more importantly it still generates revenue even when I’m not there.
And it all started when I took the risk to fly 
to California to attend a live event.
While that event and others like it are great, I felt like I was a square peg trying to fit into a round hole. I recognized there was a massive gap in the industry and so I 
decided to fill it with The Wellness Business Summit.  

A Summit dedicated to nutritionists, chiropractors, direct sales experts, health coaches,
fitness professionals, therapists and clinicians.
A Summit where we all dream the same dreams and speak the same language.

What It Really Means To Be A VIP.
So, at typical masterminds and summits, being a VIP usually results in a fancy lanyard sticker, a special table for you to sit at and a couple extra cocktails.

But if you know me, I DON’T DO THINGS BY HALVES.

All WBS VIPs get thousands of dollars worth of gifts, coaching and
business changing shortcuts. 
These are just 3 of my top VIP gifts:
#1. Professional Photoshoot
A good photo shoot will cost you thousands of dollars and even then you often end up with a photographer who has no idea what this industry needs.

Well, worry not, when you click the VIP button for WBS ‘19, a photoshoot with an insanely dialed-in photographer is yours!

Your branding, your social media presence and ALL your outbound marketing just took a MASSIVE jump to the top. NICE!
#2. Pre-Event Goal Setting Session and 90-Day Post-WBS Accountability Group Check-In
Another great example of how my VIPs are given the business edge is the 90- Day Accountability Check-In.

There is no point coming to an event like this only to go home and sit on your thumbs. You need to spring into action and make expediency your top priority.

Having your VIP pre-event goal setting session will ensure this event absolutely delivers the answers you have been looking for. It will focus you. It will drive you to engage and not just let the event pass by unnoticed.

The VIP accountability check (scheduled 90 days out) will force you to make serious business leaps and bounds from the moment you get home. Group accountability like this is so valuable I can’t put a number on it, but I promise you that the 90-days after WBS’19 are going to be the MOST profitable ever. 

Give yourself a raise and make sure you’re inside the VIP Accountability Group.
#3: VIP Networking Pre-Event Party
Of course I know you are coming to WBS ‘19 to watch the thought leaders of our industry dish out sackfuls of mindset, tactics and profitability teachings. 

You are coming to be immersed into your people, to feel normal and successful along with hundreds of other people just like you.

You are coming to give yourself a massive dose of motivation.

BUT DON’T FORGET! Networking at events like these could lead to your next million dollar pay cheque.

You are going to be surrounded by incredibly successful people, believe me when I say you want to get to know them on a first name basis.

You want to connect with people that have been where you are and see HOW they created an empire and so networking is one of the MAIN money multipliers fro VIP attendees. You want to make your name known and you want to explore any possible partnerships and ventures that will come up.

By choosing to become a VIP at WBS’19 you are choosing to surround yourself with elite connections.

There are more bonuses and swag for my VIPs listed above so take a look at your options but remember, investing in your business is always money well spent.
Event Location: The Globe & Mail Centre
The WBS will be held at the state of the art Globe & Mail Centre located in downtown Toronto.

Evolving your mindset and business requires an epic view with lots of light. You’ll enjoy cityscapes and lake views from the top floor of Canada’s leading news headquarters. 

Not only will you be in the heart of Toronto’s most progressive neighbourhood, you will find yourself surrounded by boundless elegance and energy.

For those of you travelling from out of town, we have hotel and parking recommendations.

We have more travel and accommodation information below in the FAQ section.
Whether you are vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten-free and/or dairy-free you will be well fed through the 3-day WBS.

We have partnered with the top food companies in Toronto to bring you delicious, blood sugar balancing and brain optimizing meals, snacks and beverages. This is not one of those events where you’ll be starving and only eat bars!

If you have an anaphylactic dietary request we will most certainly accommodate you as well..

We have more food information listed in the FAQ section below.
Unlike other conferences that have you sitting for 10 hours straight, we know that the best way to shift your mindset and to integrate new information is to get you to change your physical state.

We’ve partnered with some of the top movement specialists in Toronto so there will be lots of movement and dance breaks integrated into each daily agenda.  
Meaningful Relationships 
The Wellness Business Summit community is like family. Attendees come back year after year to hang out with virtual friends and to meet new friends in the flesh. While working online and in a clinic is awesome there is no substitute for real-life interaction.

There are lots of breaks and plenty of time to hang out, chat and support each other.  
Giving Back
Because it’s a core value of ours to give back and have massive impact in every way, 10% of the price of your ticket will be donated to Second Harvest.
Second Harvest is the largest food rescue organization in Canada and a global thought leader on food recovery. With a goal to drastically reduce the amount of food wasted while ensuring people have access to the good, healthy food they need for success, Second Harvest works across the supply chain from farmer to retail to capture surplus food before it ends up in the landfill and negatively impacts our environment.
When you purchase a ticket to attend The Wellness Business Summit you’ll be providing meals to those in need made up of the fresh produce and other perishable items that we all know everyone needs (and deserves) to live a healthy life. The purchase of a General Admission ticket provides 160 meals and the purchase of a VIP ticket provides 360 meals.

And $1000 giveaway!
(you didn’t think I was done...did you?)
We know that events like this can feel a lot like drinking from a firehose. You get blasted with tactics, strategy and concepts and at the time, you can only drink in small portion of what is being given to you. Well, to me, that’s simply not good enough.

I have made it my mission to help wellness professionals up their game and so I have decided to GIVE you ALL the recordings from EVERY SPEAKER...for free. Yup, we are professionally recording the entire event on video just for you!

I want you to have the option of going back over the information. To study everything that was said. You are going to be given LIFE CHANGING ideas and I can’t afford for you to miss a thing.

After the event is over you’ll be given exclusive access to the of the WBS videos, speaker notes and presentations so that you can go back and watch them on demand whenever you need clarification or new ideas.

Having these video means:
You don’t have to try and scribble everything down (this kind of distraction is the perfect way to miss something valuable). Instead you can sit, listen, and absorb. 

You will always have access to your AHA! moments and you can watch them over and over again.

You will have a library of industry-specific speakers at your fingertips who you can turn to time after time for cutting edge advice.

You will be able to focus on the presentations instead of writing, typing, and texting. Nothing creates more anxiety than worrying that you are not capturing everything you need.

Don’t worry, having the videos makes the WBS a FOMO-Free zone.
The WBS videos, speaker notes and digital presentations are valued at $997 but are absolutely FREE for all WBS attendees.

Frequently Asked Questions
I was at the WBS in 2017, is the content new and will I be bored?
A lot has changed in the last 2 years. Yes, the content is all new and you will absolutely NOT be bored. In fact, you are in a much better position to absorb, understand and take action on this year’s content because you’ve attended the WBS in the past.
We have a new lineup of speakers who are bringing their A-game and secret tips to the stage this year PLUS you get the added bonus of attending the Mix & Mingle Party.
I’m still a student; I don’t have a business and I am afraid I won’t have a clue what anyone is talking about… should I still come?
The whole reason I’ve created The Wellness Business Summit is to ensure that students, new business owners and seasoned business owners have an event where they can come to learn the business strategies specific to health and wellness.

I wish I had this information when I was still in school. This is your chance to model success so you don’t waste time trying to figure it all out alone. We have many students who come to The Wellness Business Summit, especially distance students. It’s so nice for you to meet other students and network with future colleagues. 
I run a brick & mortar clinic and have no intention of offering programs online, should I still come?
YES! It’s important to invest in business development and to always be on top of the trends and marketing strategies that are working right now in the health, wellness and fitness niches. Even though you have no intention of running programs online, you can’t dismiss that learning how to market your business online is vital to your bottom line.
There is no way around it, the internet, specifically social media, is the first place potential clients will go to check out your business and if you don’t have even a small online presence you’ve lost the prospect to someone who does. 

We are revealing business and marketing strategies for health and wellness professionals that are proven to work regardless of the type of business you own and operate. 
Travel & Accommodation Information
The Wellness Business Summit is being held at The Globe & Mail Centre. It’s located in downtown Toronto.

Depending on where you are flying in from you can fly into either Pearson Toronto International Airport or Billy Bishop Airport. You can also take a train or public transportation.  

There is no set hotel for the WBS. Air B & B is your best option along with any of the hotels near the venue.
There are plenty of Green P parking options. Download the Green P app so you can easily park and pay without having to return to your car.
Food & Beverage
Both of the meal options are gluten and dairy-free. You can choose from vegan or paleo.
If you have an anaphylactic food allergy please ensure that you let us know by May 1st so that we can accommodate you. Coffee, tea and water (along with some surprise beverages) will be served throughout the event. Bite-sized snacks will be sampled and/or sold during the 3-day event.
Is There A Single Day Ticket Option?
Unfortunately, the answer is no. 
Do You Have To Pay Extra To Get Into The Mix & Mingle Party?
No way! You are our guest and admission is FREE as soon as you registered to attend The Wellness Business Summit. The Mix & Mingle party is your chance to get outside of your comfort zone, dress up or down and let loose.
There is an option to add on a + 1 so you can bring someone to the Mix & Mingle party with you. You will receive a separate email with information about the party and how to RSVP closer to the event date. 

What If I Register To Attend But Have To Cancel? Do You Offer A Refund?
Book the babysitter, tell the family you are heading out of town for the weekend and prepare as far in advance as possible. I strongly encourage you to make the decision NOW to attend The Wellness Business Summit. As a mom of two, I know that things come up unexpectedly.

We have two policies that you can follow:  
1. If you need to refund your ticket you can do so prior to April 1st, 2019. We will issue you a full refund. After this date no refund will be issued.

2. After April 1st, 2019 you are welcome to sell/transfer your ticket to someone else. 
Can I Bring A Friend Or Colleague?
YES! The more support and accountability you have in your life the more successful you will be. It’s always fun to go to an event like this with a familiar face. In fact, you can bring a friend or colleague for $397. If the bring-a-friend wants the VIP ticket option they’re required to pay full price.

You’ll get access to the bring-a-friend ticket option after you register for the event. There will be a link to the bring-a-friend page in the welcome email you get. 
What Is The Dress Code? 
You do you! Wear comfy clothes that you feel good in. We never know what Toronto weather will bring. It’s June so it should be warm and sunny but make sure you check the weather leading up to the event. Bring a sweater because the venue will be air-conditioned.
