FAQ

Still Have Questions?

Will I need to show my face/use my camera?

No. Never fear, you will not have to appear on camera for this event. Feel free to wear your PJs; we’ll be none the wiser! The summit will take place entirely using Zoom’s webinar function which means the only people who show their faces are the presenters and panelists.

Do I need to register for each session individually?
No, you only have to register for the summit once and you will gain access to all five summit sessions. Choose whichever presentations you want to attend. Whether you tune in for just one session or all five, you only have to register once.
I can't make one of the sessions. Will there be recordings available?

 Yes. We will send recordings of each day’s session to all registrants. And recordings will be available for registrants to view after the summit has ended at conantleadership.com/video. 

Can I share to my social media? Is there a hashtag for the event?
Yes, you are free and encouraged to share news, insights, and updates from the summit on social media. The hashtag for this event is #BLUEPRINTSummit and you can tag Doug in your posts—on twitter @DougConant; on Instagram @Doug_Conant; on Facebook @ConantLeadership; and on LinkedIn @Doug Conant.
Do I need to have read The Blueprint book prior to attending the summit?

No. You’ll get lots out of the summit sessions without having read the book, The Blueprint . But of course, the book will provide extra depth and texture to the learnings and can help you hone your leadership craft. You can pick up your copy from any of the major booksellers listed here.
