Rising Above: A Virtual Sales & Management Media Summit

Featuring lessons from the best trainers in the business, Rising Above is a day and a half live virtual training event designed to teach, coach, inspire and motivate attendees to rise above the challenges of today’s sales and management environment.

Rising Above 3.0 is scheduled on Wednesday, January 26th, 2022 for Leaders and Managers and then again on Thursday, January 27th, 2022 for Sellers.


Since 2020, Rising Above has brought you a wide range of musical talent and we’re extremely excited to announce that Curb Records recording artist and country music singer/songwriter Hannah Ellis will be joining us LIVE for Rising Above on Thursday, January 27th, 2022.

The Campbellsville, Kentucky-native’s voice – a mix of favorite flannel, sparkling pink wine and welcome – is the friend we always wanted.

Ellis recently made her Grand Ole Opry debut, has toured with Gavin DeGraw, Dwight Yoakam, Devin Dawson, and many others, and has toured as part of the CMT “Next Women of Country” Tour. Ellis was invited back by her college alma mater to be featured in a national television advertising campaign about pursuing and achieving your dreams. Hannah Ellis’ debut single, “Us” along with “Home And A Hometown” are available now on Curb Records, with more music to follow!
