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 invincible, tenacious self yet?

Whether you have a disability, are faced with discrimination, have lost a loved one, or are struggling with illness, the No Barriers Virtual Summit will help you find opportunity 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 Google 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 Bethany Hamilton, a shark attack survivor who found the courage to get back on a surfboard.

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

Following the devastation of COVID-19, we believe that possessing the skills to adapt, to accept and to grow, apply now more than ever before.

Presented by Wells Fargo, this year’s No Barriers Summit has been transformed into a virtual experience now 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 REFUSING TO GIVE UP ON OUR MISSION THIS YEAR AND WE’RE INVITING YOU TO JOIN US THIS JUNE 26TH & 27TH

With 48 hours access to LIVE No Barriers content, empowering activities, inspiring speakers, moving performances and community connections, the No Barriers Virtual Summit will guide you towards success, showing you how to tackle obstacles with tenacity and confidence.

There’s no denying that 2020 has been challenging in ways we never imagined but the truth is, YOU have the power to make it the year you will never forget for reasons different than most. 

Join us from the comfort of your own home this June 26th & 27th and take control of redefining what’s possible for you and your life.

N.B. If you can’t join us live, sign-up and enjoy recordings of the sessions in your own time.
The No Barriers Summit experience has the capacity to change your life. For me, it confirmed that I was not alone in seeing that adversity is often the catalyst for our growth.
