Advising

problem solving focused

ELC Summit’s Advising consists of 1:1 sessions designed to connect specific problems with the most relevant solutions by tapping into the collective knowledge and experience of domain experts who have worked hands-on as advisors across individuals, companies and even industries. These sessions are intended to help you unblock specific challenges within your team, org or career through efficient, on-the-spot conversations focused on immediate problem-solving.
FIELD EXPERTS

advisors are domain experts

Accelerate your development, impact, and results by learning from a content expert who has already solved your problem, or who has already produced extraordinary outcomes in the areas where you feel stuck.
SOLVE REAL PROBLEM

share & solve real problems

When you authentically share your challenges up front, it allows the opportunity for others to contribute or solve. This is your opportunity to dig into your specific challenge, and apply crucial insight from a domain expert.
TOPIC SPECIFIC

walk away with specific solutions and insights

With a focus on specific issues, you will be able to gain specialized knowledge that can make an impact and illuminate actions you can take immediately that will make a difference.
