Testimonials for ESC Conference for Creative Entrepreneurs

The Event • June 4, 2024

ESC Conference.

A dream, imagined.

A conference, needed.

An event, come to life.

Kassie and I are still reeling from the first ever ESC Conference, a conference for female creative entrepreneurs looking to grow their businesses.

In a mere three days, we:
✨ cultivated a fierce community with deep connections
✨ hosted our keynote speaker, Cheval
✨ dove into two masterclasses – AI with Duo Collective and tax strategy with Brittney Suttle
✨ peppered a panel with Mai-Kee Tsang, Jenny Parulski, Melissa Jones, Kassie O’Driscoll, and Ali Rae Haney
✨ four attendees were put in the hot seat and got personalized advice on their businesses
✨ got updated headshots for everyone in attendance
✨ had impromptu coaching sessions
✨ partied freaking hard (and got our hair braided and danced in our PJs)
✨ drank at a bourbon bar
✨ recorded a live podcast episode with a local influencer
✨ walked our attendees through an experience gallery with boss babe lip colors and watercolor portraits
✨ showered all of our attendees and speakers with gifts and swag from the moment they arrived
✨ announced our next event – ESC Retreat at Lake Wylie, SC October 11-14! 🎉

A quick highlight reel of the ESC entrepreneur community that came to life in April…

Sweet Words from Attendees & Speakers

This conference is exactly what the creative industry needed. You two went above and beyond with every single detail and see all the hard work you put in behind the scenes to make this dream a reality! You brought together women of all walks of life which is such a powerful thing to do and not an easy task. Im grateful to have been part of the 1st ESC and know this is just the start of your journey. Because of the conference I got clarity and confidence to launch a completely new offer which is now part of my story.

The conference has been incredible. The relationships formed, honest conversations had, and speaker line-up have been so life-giving. Thank you for creating a space for us all to come together and build community with one another. I loved being a part of the panel and pouring into attendees. You two are simply amazing. P.S. THE DETAILS!

I am so blown away by this experience…thank you so much for creating this space and so warmingly welcoming me in. I am forever grateful. I am excited to see how much this unlocked for all of us. I am so your fan and so happy and ready to tell everyone about this space.

Danielle Throckmorton, Throckmorton Events & Reach Retreat

I am soooo impressed and proud of what you two dreamed up and created perfectly…and not saying this just as a family member…but because I am sooo impressed and immensely thankful that you created this amazing event and community. I’m so grateful for the timing of this and my current transition making this transition less stressful. Hope you see the connections and impact being made with what you have created–this community!
