Omaha YPs (and YPs-at-heart!)! Can you believe we are already under one month until the largest young professionals’ conference in the country? The exciting two-day virtual event is coming up fast so don’t wait to get your tickets here: https://www.omahachamber.org/ypsummit/ 

We will open up the event on Thursday, March 4, with our opening keynote Jay Shetty, purpose coach and former monk. Jay Shetty’s mission is to make timeless wisdom more accessible, relevant and practical. He’ll share how you can train your mind for peace and purpose. His first book, Think Like a Monk, was released in September 2020 and instantly became a #1 New York Times Bestseller. The book shows readers how to be courageous, compassionate and determined in our fast-paced, stressed out and disconnected world. Check him out on social media for daily insights!

Following Jay Shetty will be two breakout sessions where you can choose among three different inspirational sessions for each breakout! Then we will come back together and honor this year’s Change Makers. Change Makers are individuals making positive, innovative, and powerful change in our community, and beyond! After the Change Makers, stick around for amazing Extend Your Experience rooms. You’ll be able to experience an incredible local artist showcase with the Omaha Musicians’ Association, an insider tour of the delicious and innovative new Site-1 Brewery, and a deeper look into metamorphosing tea culture with Artemis Tea & Botanical with an interactive tea-making demo!

Day two starts with invigorating Extend Your Experience sessions! How about a 30-minute sweat session with TorvaHIIT or a 30-minute yoga beginner’s practice to get you moving? For a more stationary start to your morning, take a tour with Hardy Coffee Co.! After that, we will come back together to honor this year’s Rising Star Award recipient and hear about their professional development experience for insights you can start implementing in your life! Following the Rising Star presentation, the rest of the morning will be two more amazing breakout sessions with three options each session. 

We will end the two-day event with Wes Moore, CEO of Robin Hood, one of the largest anti-poverty forces in the nation. He is a bestselling author, a combat veteran and a social entrepreneur. Wes will talk about transformational leadership. He’ll share how to inspire those around you to achieve a greater good. Encouraging leaders of all walks of life to adapt and evolve—and cultivate an environment of accountability. 

This will be an UNFORGETTABLE two-day Summit. You will NOT want to miss this!
