Elevate professional development event is back Nov. 12

Note: Elevate has been moved to Thursday, Nov. 12

Elevate, the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber’s professional development event, is back for its second year of helping Oklahoma City professionals grow their careers. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Elevate will be held entirely online and has moved to Thursday, Nov. 12 to better accommodate the schedules of working parents, and giving attendees the opportunities to experience world-class career coaching from the comfort of their own home or office.

National bestselling author, international speaker and life strategist Valorie Burton will provide a keynote address at this year’s Elevate. Valorie is the founder and CEO of the Coaching and Positive Psychology (CaPP) Institute. Her life-changing message has an intriguing, research-based emphasis in the pioneering field of applied positive psychology – the study of what happens when things go right with us. She teaches that resilience is a skill that can be learned – and anyone who wants to have fulfillment, high impact and success must learn it. Valorie’s keynote address “Resilient & Ready: How to Thrive Through Challenge & Change” will help attendees understand and create the building blocks of resilience so they can bounce back from setbacks, withstand pressure and maintain a positive perspective.

Dr. Nathan Mellor is a thought leader, two-time TEDx speaker, author and President of Strata Leadership, and will be giving a keynote address as well. He is recognized for his ability to connect at the heart level with a wide range of audiences. In his dynamic opening session at Elevate, you will learn about mindsets, how the brain functions through neuroplasticity, and understand the difference between having a fixed and growth mindset approach to life. After hearing his message, attendees will understand the difference between fixed and growth mindsets, gain a new perspective on life’s challenges, reframe situations, and regain control of their life.

The Elevate experience includes two keynote sessions, the attendee’s choice of three breakout sessions, access to a virtual expo, a custom attendee profile and personalized agenda, live community chat and a digital happy hour featuring online exhibitors, 1:1 speed networking, live music and more. Breaks throughout the day will highlight Oklahoma City’s arts scene and will feature yoga and other movement sessions from Oklahoma City trainers.

The Essential ticket package is $49 for Chamber members and $69 for nonmembers and includes day-of access to Elevate. The Preferred ticket package, which is $99 for Chamber members and $119 for nonmembers, also includes access to a replay of all general and breakout sessions for one month following the event and a VIP swag box delivered to your home or office.
