It’s back! The Ultimate Conference for Virtual Assistants, OBMs & freelancers

#elevate21

1 July 2021

 

Direct to you in your home, wherever you are in the world!

 

Lessons from Lockdown

 

It’s back, and it’s better than ever!

Having had a sell out summit in September 2020, we couldn’t WAIT to bring you another virtual conference to blow your mind and see you thrive as business owners in the current climate.

Our 2021 conference will be focusing on Lessons from Lockdown and will be a chance to look at the new opportunities arising out of the COVID pandemic and changing ways of working.

With more and more businesses starting or moving online, the Virtual Assistant, Social Media and online business support industry has NEVER been more important.

We want to build on the lessons learnt in the last 12 months and bring the industry together to emerge stronger than ever from the pandemic.

We are busily pulling together the line up for the summit but it promises to be bigger and better than ever!
