What is a Virtual Summit?

Virtual Summits are specially designed to help equip leaders and build high-performing teams. Our recipe combines practical learning with small group discussions and interactive experiences.

Virtual Summits are made up of two major components:

1. Time Together
Synchronous learning that happens online, in real time, with everyone else. You will get to attend (3) LIVE virtual sessions with our Speakers, Facilitators, and other professionals from across the globe. Each LIVE session is scheduled for 2 hours, once per week. During the LIVE sessions, you will experience:

  • A keynote presentation from our Speakers
  • Online breakout rooms
  • Small group discussions with other professionals
  • Hands-on, experiential learning
  • Facilitated, problem-solving activities

2. Time on Your Own
Asynchronous learning that happens online, on your schedule, in-between LIVE sessions. We’ll share links to exclusive digital resources via email for you to view, read, watch, and do on your own time for continued learning.

When you can't meet in-person, Virtual Summits are the next best thing!

Network with Professionals

At a Virtual Summit, you'll get to network with other professionals  and make meaningful connections with like-minded individuals.

Discuss real leadership challenges you or others may be facing (and how to solve them) with real leaders from across the globe.

Get Moving

Tired of Zoom fatigue? We are, too. 😫

That's why our Virtual Summits are specially designed to get your blood pumping and your mind turning.

This isn't your typical online "conference" or "webinar" where the speaker talks at you. No, this is a two-way street. Prepare to lean in and get involved.

Our Virtual Summits combine RICH leadership content with hands-on, experiential learning. Expect to be challenged with problem solving activities.

Attendees will enjoy small group breakout sessions to communicate, connect, and collaborate with other leaders.

Experience Second-Mile Service

WinShape Teams is known for its world-class hospitality and second-mile service. Since we can't care for you in person, we are packaging our 30 years of knowledge of team dynamics and hospitality into a Virtual Summit.

We'll make sure you feel cared for, heard, loved, even pampered throughout this leadership development experience.

Access to Digital Resources

We've developed exclusive digital resources to help you get the most out of this experience.

You'll have access to additional reading materials, videos, and more in-between our "LIVE" sessions. That way, you can learn even more on your own time, whenever it's most convenient for you.

Those resources will be sent to you via email before, during, and after the Virtual Summit.

Watch It Again (and again)

Don't miss a beat! We'll deliver all (3) session recordings to you via email, post-event, so you can stay fully engaged during the Virtual Summit.

Have FUN

We've poured countless hours into designing a virtual experience that will keep you engaged and entertained while you learn.

Virtual Summits feature (3) LIVE sessions with our program hosts. As part of your online experience, you'll "breakout" into smaller groups for some hands-on, interactive activities that are sure to give you a good laugh.

Simply put, you’re going to learn a TON, meet a lot of people, and have loads of fun!

Virtual Retreats - WinShape Teams

“Great content and activities, especially how the two were tied together for reinforcement. I enjoyed meeting and learning from people outside of my organization - they definitely enriched the experience.”

John G.

Lead Self @ Mt. Berry

“The staff is wonderful and very encouraging! You can tell that each one is engaged with each person they meet. They were all so excited to work with us and help us grow!”

Kayla L.

Lead Others @ Indianapolis

“This was one of the best learning environments I've had the pleasure of attending. Between the activities and the lessons, it allowed us to put into practice ideas we had just learned, as well as a 'measuring stick mentality' as in being able to see the progression from one activity to the next. Cant wait for Lead Others!”

Eric D.

Lead Self @ Anaheim
