“I'm leaving this years Lead With Love Summit with added skills and tools as well as a newly accessed level of integrity and commitment and to show up on this planet for my Self and others with a higher level of consciousness to be the light and elevate all of humanity in ways I never imagined possible." - Ken Fisher

“Lead With Love is an incredible gathering of human beings who are committed to leading from a place of love as we navigate today's world and our daily relationships. We all need to feel supported in these steps that we take, and the Lead With Love conference provides positive, realistic, and inspiring levels of support that we can take with us into the world.” - Kristina Weller 

“For the rest of my life, in business and personally, I will be grateful for my experience at Lead with Love. Finding like-minded leaders, learning to develop our business with intention, ensuring my emotional IQ continues to grow, engaging in conscious capitalism, and that was just day one!” - Sydney Schalit

“Lead with love brings all of the things I love to do together. Service, Action, Yoga, Mindfullnes, Relationships. It is truly inspiring to listen to what change makers are doing around the world. The workshops leave me with tools and more information on how to follow up. Every year I leave feeling blown away and excited to share.” - Sea Marie

“I have taught meditation, yoga, alternative approaches to health care for over 45 years. I don't usually find any benefit in seminars like this, but I was pleasantly surprised at how deeply nourishing and impacting the Lead With Live Summit was. I had some deep insights which lead to long standing issues being resolved. I also left the conference stoked to activate various ways I can move my own toolbox of knowledge,information and techniques along to others!! I am deeply grateful for the experience I had at the Summit, the authentic like minded souls I connected with who really walk their talk. The staff, the presenters, the whole organization gets high marks From this attendee.”

“I wasn’t sure why I was attending LWL, I was just drawn to it. I’m so glad I listened to my gut. It was the most inspiring, fun, loving, & life altering 4 days of my life. Thank you Lead with Love, for helping others to be the change!” - Laura E.

“Lead with Love Summit is the most inspiring event I have attended this year. Their mission to shift culture from fear to love is both ambitious and inspiring - and taking the deep dive into conscious living, even just for one long weekend, is sure to touch your heart and shift your soul. If you have the opportunity to dip your toe in - whether for a community event, a retreat, or for the annual summit - do it! It will light you up like no other...” -Kelly Hollins

“I had an amazing experience at Lead with Love and felt that the production and quality of presenters was top notch. I loved the combination of mindfulness and business, and the focus on giving people resources to take more action. I will definitely be back next year!” -Lindsay Balgooyen

"When people ask me "how was Lead with Love?" my answer is TRANSFORMATIVE! I cannot express the overall shift in consciousness that is cultivated at this event. Truly a life changing experience. I left the summit not only with a full heart but a beautiful network of new friends." Ashley Tracey

“I was unsure of Lead With Love as it felt a bit new-age in the initial branding; alas, the lessons were legit, the takeaways tangible and the longlasting effects of the mindful work shared and done at LWL will impact my business and my personal life. I'm grateful for the opportunity and look forward to what is next for LWL.”
