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.
What about if I ask a question? Will I have to show my face then?
We will have some limited Q&A during the summit sessions. If you submit a question through the Q&A function on your zoom screen, you will have the opportunity to unmute your mic to ask your question live—but you can always mute your camera function if you do not feel comfortable appearing on screen. Alternatively, you can specify in the chat box that you would prefer to remain anonymous and request that our moderator asks your question for you.
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.
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, (but it is encouraged). While you can certainly get a lot out of the summit sessions without having read the book, The Blueprint does provide extra depth and texture to the learnings and will help you deepen your understanding and hone your leadership craft. You can pick up your copy from any of the major booksellers listed here
