Network with attendees

Navigating the world of business can sometimes feel like a solitary journey, with entrepreneurs and their teams often facing unique challenges that seem insurmountable. Yet, it’s crucial to recognize that many across the globe grapple with similar issues and stand ready to share their experiences to benefit others. While online networking platforms offer substantial value, nothing quite matches the power of personal, face-to-face interaction.
The 2024 GRITT Summit provides an unparalleled opportunity to connect with driven business professionals who understand your aspirations and hurdles. More than a gathering, this summit is a melting pot of ideas, solutions, and strategies.
We are dedicated to identifying and addressing the critical aspects of your business that require attention and innovation, the components that could steer your business towards success or failure.
By fostering a culture of mutual learning and support, we empower each other towards achieving our collective and individual goals. The GRITT Summit is not just about meeting others, it’s about growing together, fostering resilience, and scripting success stories. Embrace this unique opportunity to broaden your horizons, enrich your understanding, and carve a promising path for your organization.

Amelia Rose Earhart

Author; Speaker; Artist; Pilot

As a boundary-pushing around the world pilot, Amelia Rose Earhart knows exactly what it takes to venture into uncharted territory- with confidence.

With the odds stacked against her, Amelia not only trained to become a pilot, but to become the type of pilot to choose honor the person she was named after, Amelia Mary Earhart, by piloting a single-engine airplane (Pilatus PC-12NG) 28,000 Nautical Miles around the globe. To accomplish this, Amelia developed a flight plan all her own, and while reporting full-time as on air, TV helicopter reporter, completed
private, instrument and commercial pilot training, crafted an entrepreneurial and strategic business plan
to design, fund and market her around the world attempt, raised close to $2 million in partnerships with
28 corporations, founded and ran the Fly With Amelia Foundation, which sent numerous teenage girls to
flight school, and more.

Mark Schulman

World-Renowned Drummer; Author; Motivator; Expert, The Secrets of Rockstar Performance

Mark Schulman is a monster drummer who’s toured the world with some of the greatest rock and pop performers – before crowds as big as 225,000. He’s played with P!NK, Billy Idol, Cher, Stevie Nicks, Foreigner, Simple Minds, and others over his 32-year touring career. Mark is also amazing on another stage – as a speaker, where he delivers a rock show disguised as a keynote. “I’ve learned about the importance of attitude as part of the touring family with these great performers,” Mark says as he unpacks the secrets of rockstar performance. His presentations translate lessons learned during a remarkable career into valuable tips for organizations, teams, leaders, and those who want to be their absolute best. Mark Schulman is a brilliant storyteller and performer who inspires audiences to engage and unleash their inner rockstar. Mark’s first book, Conquering Life’s Stage Fright, shows people how to harness doubt, fear, and anxiety to perform at their best when it matters most. His next book, The Attitude Equation, is slated for late 2023 release. Mark is also a judge and coach on an all-new original music competition television show called BANDED on AXS TV.
