In 2016, branding strategist Dre Beltrami’s infopreneur business faced its first major hurdle.
As she recalls it, “Everything was feeling kind of, well, stale.”
Within three months of coming to that realization, determined to take her business to the next level, Beltrami hosted her first virtual summit. Featuring 27 speakers presenting on a number of topics related to launching an infopreneur business, Beltrami came away “shocked” at how much hosting a virtual summit “grew and changed her business for the better.”
The proof is in the pudding, as they say. Beltrami’s initial virtual summit experience increased her email subscriber list by 1,170; reaped more than $4,000 in revenue via sales of summit all-access passes and other products; brought 355 new members to her Facebook group; helped her build relationships with influencers in her niche which has led to beneficial business collaborations; and brought her new opportunities in the form of podcast invitations and speaking engagements.
“Hosting a virtual summit positively changed and grew my business in both measurable and immeasurable ways in such a short time frame,” raves Beltrami.
“Everyone benefits and that’s why everyone wants to take part in them.”
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. As an author looking to build on the success of your book, it’s clear, based on Beltrami’s experience that organizing and hosting a virtual summit is an approach you have to seriously consider. Like any marketing initiative, there’s work involved on your part but the return is potentially huge. How could you possibly say no to any initiative that will be increase your visibility while bringing you new marketing opportunities? Quite simply, you can’t.
“Nothing I have tried has transformed my business like hosting a virtual summit has and in such record time,” enthuses Beltrami.

SHARESZ TARLEY WILKINSON – ‘Tip Your Toes in the Water out There and Start Swimming’ and Good Things Will Quickly Come Your Way
Learning by doing, and not being afraid of making missteps, has been, and remains, at the centre of Sharesz Tarley Wilkinson’s mission to create lifelong success for herself.
As the author of the upcoming book Obstacle Buster: How to Create Big & Bold Shifts for Lifelong Success, Sharesz, a top-level business executive coach, has reaped particular success through LinkedIn Pulse which has featured her articles and, as such, has built for her an extraordinary reputation and lifted her alongside other well-known influencers.
And then there was her being chosen as a speaker for the 2016 Women’s Business Virtual Summit which brought together best-selling authors, business owners and entrepreneurs who have grown their influence, firmly established their respective brands and taken their businesses to new heights.
Sharesz learned about the virtual summit opportunity online, applied to take park and was accepted. She gave her presentation well after midnight her time but she was up to the challenge, noting she was fortunate the hosts were kind and gracious. In addition, because she chose to contribute via a question-and-answer format, the conversation evolved naturally and smoothly. That, she says, made the entire process easier for her to handle.
“Knowing that I have a highly experienced team and publisher behind me made up for an initial lack of self-confidence,” says Sharesz.
“Of course, it also helped to have a solid professional background and experience. All of this was a great mix to have.”
Sharesz is currently in discussions to organise virtual events in collaboration with other thought leaders. She sees it as an easy and great way to gather people from all over the world to provide content and value to an interested audience, be it live or on demand. Collaboration with the right people, she notes, is key.
Sharesz encourages authors to participate in a virtual summit. According to her, it is a great way to practice public speaking skills in baby steps. Since you are not physically standing in front of a large crowd but rather in the comfort of your own office or home, she says you have less jitters.
In addition, Sharesz says a virtual summit is a great way to get exposure. Put simply, sharing insights and ideas with others is a “win-win” win.
“Tip your toes into the water out there and start swimming,” advises Sharesz.

Christine Louis de Canonville – Author of The Three Faces of Evil: Unmasking the Full Spectrum of Narcissistic Abuse
Since publishing her book in May 2015, psychotherapist Christine Louis de Canonville has been a whirlwind of activity – securing massive media coverage and leading fully booked training workshops and seminars, all while managing her huge roster of clients, new leads and website visitors.
With a passion to enhance the training of psychotherapists, Christine’s book, The Three Faces of Evil: Unmasking the Full Spectrum of Narcissistic Abuse, addresses the shortfalls in therapists’ education with the goal of better equipping them to work with survivors of narcissistic abuse.
With more than 3,000 books sold to date, Christine upped her game in September 2016, launched and hosting her first virtual workshop, Understanding the Narcissist’s Web of Deception.
In addition, she has presented three one-day therapy training workshops on narcissistic abuse for mental health clinicians and recently offered them for sale on her website. To date, she has sold some 60 of her workshops.
If that’s not enough, Christine recently toured her four-hour presentation, Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, across Ireland, reaching more than 1,000 clinicians personally. In addition, she hosted a workshop titled The Narcissist’s Convoluted Dance for the largest residential addiction centre in Ireland.
A supervisor of mental health professionals for more than 20 years, Christine’s vision is that narcissistic abuse becomes part of the curriculum of all professionals who deal with the fallout of this form of abuse.
