Studio Grow hosted an intimate and incredibly dynamic event this year packed full of business-building knowledge and inspiration. Read on for a full recap!
About Studio Grow
This year Studio Grow hosted a live summit over the course of two days on August 8-9 in the WeWork Space in downtown Chicago. Complete with breakout sessions, presentations, and workshops with 35 studios from Studio Grow’s blossoming community, organizers Lise Kueker and Maura Vella were able to give their clients a one of a kind experience!
Studio Grow is an incredible organization that aims to help business owners in the fitness industry take their studios to new heights. This is done with the help of a team of business experts ranging from operations consultants to digital marketing directors, all with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the entrepreneurial space.
A multitude of fitness business coaching services are provided to clients in the form of three different programs, each designed to help fitness studios achieve certain goals. One of their most popular programs is The Client Cure: a collaborative one-on-one and coaching program that teaches business owners in the fitness industry how to efficiently run their own studios and stand out among the competition!
How was WellnessLiving Involved?
WellnessLiving was delighted to be surrounded by so many entrepreneurs with a drive to succeed. Our passion lies in helping hard working individuals achieve their goals, so having the opportunity to connect with the many business owners working with Studio Grow was an honor and a privilege.
As a platinum sponsor, our very own CEO and co-founder Len Fridman was in attendance to educate all the studios on WellnessLiving’s business management software. Our aim is to provide a more efficient and reliable system to entrepreneurs around the world! With the help of an informative presentation, Len Fridman was able to give business owners present at this live summit an insight into WellnessLiving’s story as well as introduce what our software can do for new and established businesses alike.
Our objective has always been to see businesses in the fitness and wellness industry excel. And having the chance to share what our software can do with Studio Grow clients was beyond thrilling!
What Happened at the Event?
The summit was a captivating experience not only for Studio Grow’s clients, but for WellnessLiving as well! Jam-packed with a variety of different sessions, presentations, and workshops, Studio Grow offered its customers a host of opportunities to learn and connect with other industry professionals.
A variety of informative presentations were given, exploring a range of topics from sales psychology and goal setting to how to deal with problem clients. One of the most popular topics was “How to Effectively Manage and Grow your Business.” By giving people an opportunity to come together with other studio owners who may be facing the same challenges, Studio Grow provided its clients with a chance to network and learn from others in the same industry.
As we previously mentioned, The Client Cure aims to help business owners catapult their facilities. This is done with the help of a twelve-module course in addition to an exclusive consulting opportunity. As this program is offered online, Studio Grow works with entrepreneurs in all parts of the globe. Several business coaches from the program were present at this event, giving them an opportunity to meet the people they’ve been working with in person!
Maura Vella, one of the organizers of this event, summed it up perfectly with these words: “This was a great opportunity for our team members to meet boutique fitness studios which we’ve been working with around the world! Clients from as far as England and Australia came together at this summit allowing us to meet in person and expand our knowledge. Though we have different business modalities in place, our sole purpose is to grow our clients’ studios.”
Another highlight of the event was Len Fridman’s presentation on client retention programs offered by WellnessLiving’s software. Thirty-five studio owners were in attendance, which made this intimate information session a great opportunity for our CEO to personally connect with all who were present. These are the moments we relish, as we’re able to truly make a difference in the lives of others.
