ARE YOU READY TO BREAK DOWN YOUR BARRIERS AND TAP INTO YOUR HIGHEST POTENTIAL?

Do you want to discover how to lean into discomfort, push past complacency and reveal your most tenacious self yet?

Immerse yourself in a live experience like no other… from wherever you are in the world!

Whether you have a disability, are faced with discrimination, have lost a loved one, or are struggling with illness, the No Barriers Hybrid Summit will help you find opportunities even in the midst of adversity.

For the last 15 years, we have had the privilege of working with some of the world’s most extraordinary people alongside the leaders of prestigious companies like Wells Fargo, Winnebago and Prudential. People like Erik Weihenmayer, our very own founder who was the first blind person to reach the summit of Mount Everest, Mandy Harvey, the deaf vocalist who famously earned the Golden Buzzer on AGT and CJ Jones, who has worked on films such as “Baby Driver” (2017) and creator of the Na’vi Sign Language (NSL) for the Avatar franchise.

Our goal is simple: to share the stories of these truly inspiring people, help others break down their barriers and unleash their full potential.

Now more than ever, we believe that possessing the skills to adapt, to accept and to grow can help us to overcome obstacles and achieve our ambitions.

Presented by Wells Fargo, this year’s No Barriers Hybrid Summit will be hitting the stages of our Colorado venue AND live streaming directly to you! Meaning the live Summit experience is now fully accessible to ALL who are determined to navigate life’s challenges with more certainty and community, two things that have become extremely valuable assets to us all.

“WHAT’S WITHIN YOU IS STRONGER THAN WHAT’S IN YOUR WAY” - WE’RE INVITING YOU TO JOIN US ON OUR MISSION THIS AUGUST 28TH - 30TH

With full access to exclusive LIVE No Barriers content, empowering activities, inspiring speakers, moving performances, and community connections, the No Barriers Hybrid Summit will guide you towards success, showing you how to tackle obstacles with tenacity and confidence. And this year, we’re bringing Summit to YOU! No matter where you are in the world, join us via live streams to immerse yourself in a live festival experience like no other!

As we make our way through an ever-changing world, there’s no denying that life will always throw new challenges our way. But if we have the strength and resiliency to push past those challenges, we can discover our full potential.

Join us in Colorado or from wherever you are in the world this August 28th - 30th and take control of redefining what’s possible for you and your life.

P.S. If you can’t join us live, sign-up and enjoy recordings of the sessions in your own time.
