The Real Talk Summit brings you real and raw conversations about entrepreneurial success, impact, and brand elevation with global-leading experts.

RTS is for those who believe that the future of business depends on how we develop ourselves as leaders and how we grow our companies to make big profit
and big impact. It’s for those who understand that we’re entering a new era of entrepreneurship that’s altering the way we do business. The way products are marketed and the way we measure the success of a campaign are changing. Within companies, employee wellness is taking center stage, and everywhere leaders and entrepreneurs are talking about self-awareness.

On April 28
th, 2018 entrepreneurs, business owners, and professionals will gather to have the conversations that will push business forward. The Real Talk Summit will:

  • Connect you with leaders, professionals, and entrepreneurs growing companies and brands
  • Provide a platform for the unedited truths behind the success of influential entrepreneurs and big thinkers
  • Inspire you to take actionable steps through your own business
  • Provide honest and insightful conversations

Join us to be part of the entrepreneurial community pushing boundaries and changing perspectives.



The thing about Real Talk Summit is that there’s no abstract advice. It’s not about inspiring people to become entrepreneurs. It’s about helping people ask the right questions so they start their own businesses for the right reasons and succeed both personally and professionally.
– Daily Hive


During the Real Talk Summit, attendees can expect to hear from well-established entrepreneurs that cut through the fluff and provide the true story of their success. It’s not about telling people what they want to hear, but more about what you need to hear.
– Influencive


Whenever you can immerse yourself in a situation that empowers you like the Real Talk Summit did, it breaths new life into you. It shows you a new path to embark on in your life or business and makes you realize that everyone has to start somewhere

Danielle Laporte

Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, Oprah's Super Soul 100 Group

Danielle LaPorte is the living example of the road less travelled. With just a high school diploma she began working at The Body Shop selling peppermint foot lotion and soon found herself climbing the company’s corporate ranks with her “get it done” attitude. It is this same attitude that had her working alongside Ph.Ds at a high-profile Washington nonprofit think tank. However, Danielle’s greatest decision was to invest in her individualism and share her unique journey with others.

She is the author of The Fire Starters Sessions, and The Desire Map: A Guide to Creating Goals With Soul, which has become an international workshop program with licensed facilitators in 15 countries. Her next book, White Hot Truth will be released May 15, 2017.

Danielle’s inspiring work and writing has granted her a place in Oprah’s Super Soul 100 group and her website has been named one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women” by Forbes.

While she is an entrepreneurial force to be reckoned with, Danielle is committed to charities such as VDay, a global movement to end violence against women and girls, and charity: water, an endeavor to provide safe drinking water at a global level.
