The Sweathead Strategy Accelerator starts Nov. 1

The Sweathead Do-Together 2021

The Sweathead Do-Together

It happened and it was epic.

You can see some of the videos on our YouTube channel. Sweathead members will get a taste of the sessions in the months to come.

The Sweathead Do-Together is the first strategy conference you can turn into a plan.

It will happen over two days in September, 2021. It will feature over 16 speakers plus an optional masterclass on the third day. It will occur online. And it will make most sense for people in the timezones between Los Angeles and New York.

With our first ever Sweathead Do-Together, we'll address many of the challenges identified in Sweathead Feelings Check-In Survey 2021.

Sneak Peak of Videos from Three Do-Together Speakers

Each speaker's talk will begin with a highly-produced 8 minute video, followed by a 22 minute interactive workshop with attendees.
