Free Summit: Publish Your Socially Conscious Book
At UpLevel Productions, we believe most people “have a book in them” but don’t necessarily know where to start from a development, writing, illustration, publishing, and marketing standpoint. And because we’re also on a mission to ensure more socially conscious content gets out in the world, we wanted to bring this free summit to inspiring authors who have a message to share!
--Learned tips and tricks and some of the dos and don’ts from authors who self-published and others who received signing bonuses for manuscripts of their books.
--Walked away feeling connected to a community of like-minded individuals and inspired to write their socially conscious book.
--Left with clarity on how to launch their book into the world and gained access to a sample of UpLevel Publishing: How-to-Self Publish Workbook.
--Heard from marketing and author brand experts on how to build their brand and promote the launch of their new book.

Creating a Coaching Culture
We are living through times where the separation of an individual's work life and personal life has been minimized. People managers are required to provide much more than overseeing tasks and workflow, they need to know how to listen empathetically, honor emotions, acknowledge the whole person, and ask powerful questions.
Strong coaching cultures = strong engagement, collaboration, well-being, increased responsibility, development + revenue growth.
As part of UpLevel Productions' ongoing Event Series and our efforts to Humanize the Workplace, we curated and hosted this event series with experts in the field and professionals from leading organizations who have and are Creating Coaching Cultures.
We were joined by:
Founder & CEO of Eudaimonic by Design, Andrew Soren, to discuss Designing PERMACulture: The Science of Coaching at Work

Mental Health Awareness Series
Struck by the stat, that during the pandemic, about 4 in 10 adults in the U.S. reported symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder, up from 1 in 10, in 2019 we brought together a panel of expert guests to discuss tools, share resources and learn from their personal experiences.
“This series has been a beacon of light at a dark time. Pandemic parenting as a new mom has been deeply challenging on my mental health. I appreciate that I was able to catch these replays while out on a walk with my toddler and digest at the rhythm I needed to. Hearing personal stories at a time of isolation is an important reminder that I’m not alone and walking away with some easily digestible tools is such a gift. Thanks to everyone involved to help us Up Level (Productions) during a time of struggle.”
