Be Golden Conference, October 5 - 7

Purchase a Gold Badge or a General Admission ticket here.

Be Golden is a multi-day experience to inspire and empower individuals to live unapologetically authentic lives. Through the personal stories of our keynote speakers, workshops, meet ups, and a 5k walk/run, Be Golden is a platform for people to connect, learn, dream, and implement their goals whether personal or professional. The workshops included in the Gold Badge fall under two tracks, lifestyle and business tools (emphasis on technology). Attendees will leave this experience with new skills applicable to their career goals and a new support network to be truly golden. The keynote speakers are Luvvie Ajayi, Susan Hyatt, and Elliott Sailors.

Luvvie Ajayi is an award-­winning writer and digital strategist who thrives at the intersection of comedy, technology, and activism. A twelve‐year blogging veteran, she’s the voice behind the respected and hilarious, where she covers all things pop culture with razor-sharp commentary and wit. Her book, I’m Judging You is a New York Times bestseller.

Susan Hyatt is a Master Certified Life Coach and works with women who crave more out of life. She’s best known for helping entrepreneurs make more money without feeling shackled to a desk, and for teaching women how to lose weight permanently by bringing more pleasure and excitement into each day, not less.

Elliott Sailors is a model and actor who, in 2012, became one of the first women to model menswear as well as womenswear, walking the runways in Paris, Milan and New York Fashion Weeks. Elliott’s androgyny, bold statements and commitment to people being true to themselves gained international notoriety – including appearances on The Today Show, The View, CNN, Access Hollywood and more. In 2016, OUT Magazine payed tribute to Elliott in honoring her as one of the year’s distinguished OUT100. In 2017, all of the roles we see Elliott portray in her acting are queer characters, as she continues to create awareness, living and working by example, building towards a world of equality for all.

Emily Schromm went from MTV Challenge winner to Women’s Health Magazine’s Next Fitness Star and entrepreneur. Emily’s journey of self-discovery has led her to a full time career in helping others. Struggling her whole life with body image, gut trouble, and skin issues, nutrition and fitness has completely turned her life around. Primarily running her 21 Day EmFit Challenge online, she works with clients in Denver and around the world to change the food on their plate in order to feel their absolute best. Outside of her online training she also is the inventor of the EmPack: the world’s first and only backpack turned weight-training bag that is designed to keep you moving and strength training no matter your location.
