“Being around other big thinkers who were willing to bring their expertise and ideas to my business, and the ability to go deep on a specific idea had a tremendous impact on my thinking and focus! I highly recommend attending the CSP/ CPAE Summit! See you at the Chicago Summit!”
– Willie Jolley, CSP, CPAE
Bring and share your best money-making idea with the sharpest speaker minds in the world (other CSPs & CPAEs like you) and you’ll trigger new flashes of insight and brilliance generating new ideas, revenue and growth for your business in the next year. Each member of your Mastermind Group will have a chance to share ideas and resources, ask for help with challenges, and visualize and set achievable goals. Between four Mastermind Sessions throughout the Summit totaling almost seven hours, you’ll walk away with at least one BIG idea for new streams of income and ways to energize your business in 2013 and beyond.
SNAP Idea Session
SNAP is a fun and fast-paced sharing of big ideas and big resources - guaranteed to bring you BIG value in the very first hour of the Summit. Professionally facilitated, this session will consist of 10 groups of 6 people each. You’ll have a chance to pose a question to your group and then the members of your group will focus on your question and share their tips, resources and insights.

“The CSP/CPAE Summit is like no other NSA event. My ROI for the past Summits has easily been 100 times the investment. This is the NSA meeting where the top professionals in our industry meet and share their best money making practices. It doesn’t get any better than that!”
– Shep Hyken, CSP, CPAE
1. Is it worth the money?
As a CSP and/or a CPAE, just one idea you receive from the Big Idea Summit could be turned into thousands (or even hundreds of thousands) of dollars! Through your participation, you are guaranteed to come away with at least one big idea – giving you an instant Return on Attendance (ROA).
2. I am concerned I’ll get ideas, but not act. What do you say to me?
Taking action on ideas is always critical to producing results. At the Summit, we will help you with this. In your Mastermind Group, you’ll buddy up with two other speakers to review your intended action steps throughout the Big Idea Summit. On Sunday morning, you’ll review your action steps with your speaker buddies. Also, you can follow up with your buddies after the Big Idea Summit to help hold each other accountable.
3. What is a Mastermind exactly?
The term Mastermind is borrowed from Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Hill said that when two minds come together, a third mind is created that is even more powerful. The Mastermind groups consist of 12 speakers – all with similar business models. Each member will bring a Big Idea that is currently making them money or about to make them money. The group will then brainstorm how best to monetize this Big Idea. Also, there will be time to share a ‘Big Challenge’ to get quality feedback. We’ve made the groups just a little smaller than the previous Summit Mastermind Groups so everyone has extra time to gain value from these focused high-level discussions.

“The Summit is a not-to-miss event for NSA members who hold the CSP/CPAE! You’ll gain a wealth of information from colleagues at your level in a very short time frame. After attending, I implemented several ideas that boosted my business results. Take the time and make this investment in your professional development.” – Laura Stack, MBA, CSP
4. How will the members of the Masterminds groups be chosen?
Based upon the survey you complete upon registering, we will do our best to place you in a Mastermind Group with speakers that have similar business models to yours. If there is anyone you want in your group, make sure they register for the Big Idea Summit and let us know that you’d like to be together in the same group. If you have a close competitor who you don’t think should be in your group, let us know that, as well.
5. How much time will we have to network?
Plenty! We have networking time factored into all scheduled meals. Plus, most breaks are long enough for valuable “in the hallway” conversations. Rest assured - you will have ample time to have a conversation with anyone at the Big Idea Summit.
