“My highpoint was the collective experience of riding there, time away for creative planning, arriving at two new business ideas, being of help to other participants, observing how xchange runs an in-person event, and meeting high quality human beings. Yes, all of that.”Edwards Holliday, President, Atlantic Leadership Group
“The Summit was a truly transformational experience. I walked away with: an improved conference agenda/process, refined guiding principles for a newly launched mastermind, clarity on a decision I've been waffling on for the past five years (thanks to the sage folks in my wisdom circle), and a new appreciation for visualizations.”Rachel LaForgia, Senior Program Director, Peace and Security Funders Group

Transformation By Design
Our Summit is structured to guide you through a transformative process from your inner self to your outer world. From the opening ceremony, where we co-create our shared purpose, to the final day’s design sprint, you’ll actively create your future in the company of like-minded change agents.
We believe transformation is even more profound when shared. Tap into the collective power of a communal experience where you’ll learn and grow through proven frameworks, peer and expert coaching, and the opportunity to share your big, bold ideas with 250 change agents on a similar journey.
Leave Energized &

You’ll get more done in a day than in the past decade when it comes to designing your personal and business goals. How? We create the conditions for a breakthrough by leveraging live music, mother nature, beautiful art, and nutrient-dense food. We help you tap into your innate capacity for creativity and vision through play, music, and communal meals.
“I LOVED design day, partnered interviews, dance party, the nature photograph, journaling time, all the space to think and reflect and be. I really loved it all. The best conference I’ve ever been to.”Susan Peirce Thompson, Founder & CEO at Bright Line Eating Solutions, LLC
“I love it all and I deeply appreciate the arch of connectivity and creativity that is carefully choreographed within the Summit. I find the Wisdom Circles and the mix of solo and together design time to be generative and supportive of taking action after (and even during!) the Summit.”Dr. Cynthia Whitaker, President & CEO at Greater Nashua Mental Health
“The xchange Summit breathes life into every area of one's life so you can go back out into the world and abundantly serve.”Marni Task, Certified Yoga Instructor/ Creator Indu Aromatherapy
“What I loved were all the deep mastery elements that made a huge difference but may not have even been “hidden in plain sight.” I loved the design which leveraged the unique elements of being together live versus online- skewing a LOT towards connection time with ourselves and with each other.”Robert Murray, Facilitator and High Performance Coach, Sustainable Growth Strategies
Your Transformational Journey
The xchange Transformation By Design Summit is a masterclass in transformational facilitation

to design and facilitate a holistic, mastermind-style multi-day event while you are
simultaneously participating in our heart-centered, science-backed Summit.

We create the conditions for sparks of creativity that solve your biggest challenges, and harvest your greatest opportunities. You’ll get coaching and insight from others in the room and have the opportunity to launch your vision into the world, through a series of peer to peer feedback sessions.
What was a high-point moment for you
at the xchange Summit?
“Everything! From the initial kickoff call, the attention to detail in the design as well as the focus to service set the tone for the in-person meeting. Being with brilliant, heart-centered professionals in Cleveland building up to the design day created an environment for breakthrough thinking & design in my consulting business. Augment all of this with yoga and organic sustainable meals, I didn’t want to leave!”Craig Bruce, Executive Coach
“xchange is the truest meaning of the word "community," both incarnate and in spirit. Community literally means "with unity." I am deeply honored and humbled to be a part of this diverse collective of perspectives aligned for a singular purpose... which might take lifetimes to discover together.”Jennifer Ozgur, Teacher and Educational Consultant
“The space that was created for creativity, collaboration, reflection, fun, empathy, curiosity, innovation, interaction with nature, deep connection kept us tapped into the perfect region of our brain for activating world change! The connections with the most amazing and creative world changers I have ever been privileged to be shoulder to shoulder with. Design day was off the charts! The team helped me take all my blobs of thought and design an amazing three hour experiential keynote that will slay!”Doreen Steenland, President & CEO, Living Full Life Coaching
“One (of many) highlights was the continued opportunity for mastery. Watching facilitation at these events always impresses. I was thinking this week that studying facilitation is really no different than building expertise in any discipline. The more you know…the more opportunities for growth you see. Thanks xchange for the constant opportunity to deepen the learning.”Michael Diettrich-Chastain, CEO, Arc Integrated
