For those opting to stay at the retreat center for three nights and 9 meals that will cover your entire stay.

Economy rental cars would be another great option.  We recommend you rent a car and carpool with other attendees and make some friends in advance!

How is this different from a writing conference?

At a writing conference, the emphasis is on just that — writing. (Well, and meeting editors and agents, but we all pretend it’s all about the writing.) At Leverage: The Speaker Conference, our entire goal is to make you the kind of speaker that God has designed you to be. Our small-group mentoring is completely dedicated to the art of speaking. We have created a program that will make a marked difference not just in your ability to speak, but also in your ability to create a speaking platform.

Can you accommodate dietary restrictions? 

Please contact us — we will do our best to make every reasonable accommodation possible. All dietary needs must be communicated four weeks before the event.

Limited Spots Available

To keep our group intimate and to give each person one-on- one attention, we have limited the number of people who can participate. So if you want to be a part of it — be sure to register soon! To register, please click on the Register button at the top of the page.
