FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Event Announcement

Entrepreneurs Connect The World, Launch Global Thought Leaders Network

Samantha Riley and Davide Di Giorgio announce the launch of the Global Thought Leaders Network on Oahu, Hawaii. The Global Thought Leaders Network places more value on creating global connections and building deep rapport than focusing on transactional business relationships.

San Diego, United States - October 6, 2017

Samantha Riley, international entrepreneur, author of The Heart of Entrepreneurship and host of the Unlimited Influence podcast, and Davide Di Giorgio, founder of the Unapologetic Speakers’ Community and Creator of The Speaker Experience at Sea, announce the launch of the Global Thought Leaders Network on Oahu, Hawaii.

There are many challenges to overcome as an entrepreneur, and beyond financial challenges, the internal struggles of self-doubt, loneliness and the feeling of isolation impact thought leaders globally.

Many entrepreneurs and business owners now think social media is a suitable and complete way to leverage human connection. While social media is a great tool, many people get stuck on building a successful platform to create the impact they deeply desire.

Beyond the social media, tools, hustle, funnels, traffic, clicks and sitting at the computer, the common, and often missing denominator, is human connection.

Back in December 2016, Australian thought leader Samantha Riley hosted a VIP dinner in Santa Monica, California, bringing together an inspiring group of twenty thought leaders. It was a spectacular night with amazing conversations, and nearly a year later, most are still collaborating on all sorts of projects.

“Attending Samantha Riley’s VIP dinner is still reaping business rewards almost a year later!” says entrepreneur and photographer Marcy Browe. “I met my future business coach at that dinner, as well as many other heart-centered business professionals that I have had the pleasure of working with and collaborating with since meeting them. Thanks to Samantha, I have opened up a whole new set of business connections that didn’t exist for me previously”

What Ms. Riley thought was a “one-off” has turned into something far greater. Based on the quality of the connections made in the room, she wanted to recreate the event globally and began conversations with fellow entrepreneur Davide Di Giorgio, The Unapologetic Speaker Coach, from San Diego, who also attended the Santa Monica event.

“We instantly knew that we wanted to create something bigger, together” says Di Giorgio, “and after many discussions, and realising we were both going to be in Hawaii at the same time, it became obvious that this was the perfect timing and place for our official launch of the Global Thought Leaders Network.”

Samantha and Davide are passionate about creating a high quality network, where people place more value on creating global connections and building deep rapport than focusing on transactional business relationships. This will not only extend the life and impact potential of a global network of ethical entrepreneurs, it will also result in more business.

On October 19, Hawaii’s thought leaders, coaches, authors, speakers, entrepreneurs, and business owners who are ready for a global audience are invited to the Building Influence Workshop.

The workshop will cover:

* “How to effortlessly attract the clients who want to work with you”

* “The strategy to make more money in less time, so you can get on with growing your business”

* “The 4 key branding components to grow your business”

* “‘Out of the box’ networking, publicity and developing powerful partnerships”

“We know how it feels to be the world’s best-kept secret despite all the efforts to get visible and become known,” says Di Giorgio, “and this is why Samantha and I have joined forces to create this hands-on, full-day experience that will generate momentum and support on-purpose entrepreneurs in standing out from the crowd!”

Participants will begin to implement action plans in the room and also receive follow-up group accountability and hot-seat calls in the weeks after the workshop.

Immediately following the workshop, Riley and Di Giorgio are hosting a networking mixer and dinner for an evening of high level networking with a group of top entrepreneurs, influencers, authors, and thought leaders in their field.

Joining Di Giorgio and Riley at the workshop and for the VIP mixer is Hawaii influencer, keynote speaker and presenter, Cynthia Manley. “I am thrilled that Davide and Samantha are sharing their knowledge and expertise on building influence right here in Hawaii. It is going to be a life-changing experience so get ready for success!”

Manley will speak on “Out of the box” networking, publicity and developing powerful partnerships.

Di Giorgio explains, “Our vision is to create a new evolution of e-connected thought leadership and entrepreneurship, where we build a global network of ethical connections across the planet, with the intention and commitment to create a more connected global community.”

“We’re challenging the belief of what people think business is,” says Riley. “What would happen if social media disappeared tomorrow? Would business owners have built the level of rapport and relationship with enough people that they could sustain their business?”

Di Giorgio goes on to say, “The Global Thought Leaders Network places primary value on relationships and rapport. We understand that when people connect ethically and authentically, business happens.”

“We’re turning the business model upside down – instead of building a business, then finding people to sell to, spend time on building a high quality community, and people will be attracted to you. This is our mission and we are passionately bringing it to life around the globe! It’s effortless, it’s empowering and it’s a reminder that we often have everything we already need for success in all areas of business and life – usually only one connection away.”

“Connecting with others also creates a deeper connection with self and a confidence that doesn’t exist when we are living the proverbial ‘laptop lifestyle’ – which is very lonely.”

Thought leaders, coaches, authors, speakers, entrepreneurs, and business owners are invited to attend. The Mixer and VIP Dinner are also open to those unable to make it to the Workshop.
