The Shared Experience Summit

An amazing 3 day event bringing together executives, entrepreneurs, and professionals who are READY TO WIN the CREATOR ECONOMY with SHARED EXPERIENCES...




Shared Experiences are Changing Everything....

Posting, commenting, podcasting, and livestreaming are over. The most significant change to the internet in decades is the advent of the Shared Experience, spontaneous or scheduled live sessions ranging from two to tens of thousands of participants.


When successfully integrated into a business, social, or community context, Shared Experiences can create deeper connections, ​generate more revenue, improve effectiveness, increase conversion rates, and effect lasting transformation for individuals and organizations.


The Shared Experience Summit provides a model for designing, developing, and delivering shared experiences to boost your career, grow your practice, improve your organization, or build your book of business.


Your speakers, hosts, guests and fellow participants will be a fount of wisdom, knowledge, and inspiration. This summit promises to be a transformational experience in and of itself!

Master Shared Experiences In 3 Action-Packed Days

When the pandemic hit in March 2020 I was serving as entrepreneur in residence for a global educational non-profit that trained its community of students on-location in hotels, conference centers and retreat centers.


We rapidly moved programs from the training room to online courses and found a grateful audience. Students in quarantine and lockdown connected, shared, and learned together.


The transformations experienced by the students in shared online experiences were in many cases more profound than those from the training room. The ability of the trainer to prepare the students for the sessions, conduct the sessions, and guide the students into self-directed learning was the key differentiator between courses that simply educated and those that provided breakthrough experiences.


I founded Scoby Society to bring the transformational aspects of shared experiences into a wide variety of settings. The newly omnipresent capability of shared experience is ripe for exploration, discovery, and co-creation. 


Let's create a breakthrough experience together!

In a fun role-reversal, Marianne will interview David Larson Levine about the origin story of the Scoby Social app and share her thoughts on the role of social media curation and the shifting landscape of our global community.

The Shared Experience at Work

Shared Experiences for Competitive Advantage

The Spontaneous Enterprise Meets Experience Media 

As President of Miller Brewing Company, Jeffrey Hembrock was responsible for global operations, marketing, supply chain, and sponsorships. 


Denise Denson, as EVP at Viacom, negotiated distribution deals with Comcast, Verizon and other major carriers.


Jeffrey and Denise will share their thoughts on how shared experiences will change the landscape of the corporate enterprise, collaboration, sponsorships, brand building, and entertainment.


Shared experiences promise to be disruptive in the media landscape, with audiences spending more time in conversation and participatory activities rather than passively consuming streaming media and posting on social media. 


The workplace is also changing and growing more spontaneous as executives, managers, and employees rely more on shared experiences that are recorded, transcribed and processed by machine learning systems and less bound to databases, reports, memos, and messaging.

Connecting Public Servants with the Public

Shared Experiences for the Public Sector

How to Create Effective Public-Private Partnerships

As Director of Arlington Economic Development in Virginia, Victor Hoskins landed Amazon's HQ2, the mother of all economic development deals.


As Mayor of Charlestown, WV, Scott Rogers fought Rockwool, a toxic polluter sited across the road from an elementary school.


Victor faced protests from citizens opposed to HQ2, while Scott joined protestors in resisting the Rockwool project.


Beyond the formality of hearings, public comment, negotiations and compliance, or the resistance of protesters, activists, and concerned citizens, shared experiences represent the possibility of deeper engagement, connection and partnership between people serving in different roles such as public official, corporate executive, parent, or advocate.

John is developing the Eden Project to bring life, beauty, and nature into the built environment. 


Robert Whetsel is an senior executive at a federal agency leading digital transformation; he formerly served as Chief Data Scientist for the US Department of Defense.


Dedicated apps and services for shared experiences such as Clubhouse and Zoom are growing rapidly while mainstream social media services like Facebook and Twitter are adding the capabilities. At the heart of all of this is machine learning, which can transcribe, analyze and mediate video conferences in real-time.

Incorporating shared experiences into consumer apps, SaaS platforms and the enterprise isn't just a technical exercise. The shift from asynchronous to real-time is a deep cultural shift that will change the very nature of our relationship with software systems and with each other.

While social media promised to bring people together, it has also deepened rifts and stoked violence. We will explore ways that shared experiences can form the foundation for deeper, more authentic online connections that encourage peace and justice to thrive in every heart and soul.

Mastering the Shared Experience

Promoting Health and Wellbeing

The Shared Experience as Inclusive and Supportive for All Participants

How to Provide Transformational Experiences for Mind, Body, Heart and Soul.

Zoe Levine is a music therapist and Zumba instructor who works in the Annapolis, MD public school system.


Nicole Triplett has developed "OHMstead," a guided practice that combines Reiki, Yoga, and Krav Maga, an Israeli form of martial arts, for complete and optimal health.


By recognizing the significant and unique gifts of every participant in a shared experience and putting neurodivergence and neurodiversity as at the center, rather than the periphery, Zoe and Nicole guide shared experiences that nourish and sustain each participant as a whole person.


Unlike social media communications through chat messages, images, and videos, expertly guided shared experiences that include multi-party audio and video can include the neurological keys to increasing empathy and reducing detachment and emotional indifference.
