Last year, we started something special with the first Prospecting and Outreach Summit. 

It was like planting a tree, not knowing exactly how it would grow, but with the hope that it would provide shade for many in the future. 

We all came together—eager to learn, ready to connect, and full of ambition.

And wow, did that tree flourish. 

We watched as ideas turned into plans, and plans turned into action. 

We saw firsthand that when you put in the work, when you reach out and really connect, the opportunities aren’t just in your dreams—they’re right there in front of you.

It’s 2023.

The Prospecting and Outreach Summit is back, and it’s all about what we’ve learned and where we’re going. 

Last year’s summit taught us that anyone can strike when the iron is hot, that the “lucky” are often those who have hustled the hardest.

This year’s BizzBee summit is the result of every lesson we learned last time, every success story that was shared, every piece of advice that was taken to heart. 

We’re excited to roll out the welcome mat for this year’s group of amazing speakers. 

These are the go-getters.

The achievers.

The ones who’ve really made things happen. 

They’re coming with their own stories, packed with insights and practical tips they’ve picked up along the way. 

Get ready to meet them and get the lowdown on how they do what they do. 

We can’t wait to share their stories with you, and we’re sure they’ll get you thinking and doing things in new ways that’ll make this year’s summit even better.
