These two men have dedicated their professional lives toward the aim of mastering Transactional Competence and making that skill accessible to anyone who accepted their offer and the conditions of our lives are better for it!

The content was relevant, the presentations were polished, and the structure felt like an experiential hero's journey. I laughed, I cried, and thanks to your deliberate design - I was confronted with the perfect challenge. I loved that the conference culminated in a game and that we had the opportunity to practice applying our learnings in a collaborative and playful exchange. A big thank you to the IU staff and other conference attendees for your brilliance and bringing the material to life in service of our shared growth.
The Annual Conference is (whether on Zoom or in person) simply the best possible start to my year. It allows me to plan for the year ahead in an environment of ambitious adults and amazing resources, in addition to studying new material from some of the best in the training business. I cannot recommend the Annual Conference highly enough, which is why I travel almost halfway around the world to attend.
This was my first annual conference and well worth it. I met many new people and so many more whom I had known from courses but had not met in person. The inquiries and games were fun and eye opening. I enjoyed the one to one conversations around the exercises. This year the topic was Narrative. Influential U did not disappoint. Storytelling is so impactful and I learned how to tell stories with varying impact and focus.
The Conference was extremely relevant, engaging, and was worth taking the time and effort to be there in person. I'll be actively working to use the discussions in the growth of my business.
If you are wanting to be stretched in a non-judgmental environment there is no better place to learn.
The material continued to be more and more relaxant to my business and my life. Extremely valuable to me.
The Annual Conference is always one of the highlights of my year... and this year was no different! The content was stimulating... and both thought and action-provoking. The people... well... the people are always a highlight. How delightful to spend dedicated time studying, practicing and conversing with colleagues over such rich content. If you haven't been to the InfluentialU Annual Conference, I'd highly recommend you get yourself there! It's an investment I make year after year for its incredible value.
If I were to list out the best things in the world, in order, they would be: ice cream on a hot day, free tickets to Disney, Influential U conferences, Chic-fil-A , and peanut M&Ms. While the rest of these only last for a very short bit and give a quick hit of satisfaction, Influential U conferences give you that kick in the rear every six months to challenge you to be a more fantastic and satisfied you. This Annual Conference is no different. I walked out of it feeling like I learned so much, accomplished my aims, and now have six months to go kick ass in meeting my short and long term aims in all my conditions of life. Tall order? Maybe. Doable? Absolutely. It's all in the metrics, baby!
For me, the annual conference is an opportunity to jump start my year and ensure I'm best prepared to meet my aims, both long term and short term. While each annual conference delivers very specific content, training and practice they always provide an opportunity to connect with friends and fellow transactionalists. I always leave conference with additional tools and frameworks which help me to further the achievement of my most important aims in the conditions of life.
Attending an Influential U conference is an experience like no other. Whereas in other conferences, the learning activity is passive, these conferences are immersive and highly interactive. Each conference seems to be tailored to me personally, and my current aims, and I leave with greater knowledge about myself and how I can be more effective in my life and business. They are not to be missed!
This was was my first Annual Conference. I went in with an open mind and was not sure what to expect. I got out of it a breakthrough in understanding how my narrative impacts my worldview and blocks me from relating to other people's worldview and perspectives. It got very real for me. I also got really present to how much loss was experienced during the pandemic. We each went inward and forgot how to relate to one another in a relational (transactional) world.

Conference is an opportunity to get how you truly affect others in your professional interactions. And if you want to really grow, the games we play mirror your transactional flaws and your superpowers. One becomes the miracle grow, the other is the soil you plant ðŸŒ± it in. Six months later, reap the benefits in health, money, and knowledge!
What a ride! I am surprised to report that this actually exceeded my expectations, and my expectations were very high! Such a wonderful community to immerse myself in for a week, very smart, ambitious people who help me hold myself to account and get clear on my plans and moving tactically and strategically through life.
Having just completed the curriculum I was definitely viewing this conference as a "completion" I decently got that and so much more. Standing in a new place I could both observe and fully participate in all aspects of the conference and it did not disappoint. Influential U delivered on their commitment to expand my knowledge in Narrative and Story and how that can up my game in both my business and personal transactions - if we truly are always transacting (and yes I do believe we are) then being able to engage people with your story and communicate in a very effective way is priceless. Lastly, to be able to accomplish that and have fun at the same time! What a powerful impact that is!
Again and again, what I'm impressed by is the caliber of people who participate at Influential U. This year's annual conference was no exception. For sure John Patterson & Kirkland Tibbles strive to expand the value they provide for the ecology. What I appreciate most about Influential U is the level at which they live the work, it's not about creating distinctions so that others follow, they are the work in action. The opportunity to practice, tweak and refine your approach, offers, and identity in real time, with constructive feedback and critique, is priceless. There's no better place to test your offer of help in the world than an IU conference.
There's no better opportunity to practice the application of the study than in the focused environment that is Conference. Highly recommend participating in conference and hyper accelerating your transactional competence!
Being surrounded by striving and thriving professionals is exhilarating. It pushes you to think differently, continue your passion, and find your way in your ecology. I left the conference inspired and looking forward to implementing all I learned into my career.
Conference is always a good way to reset and create new aims to carry you through the next 6 months. Of course, there is always some new wealth of knowledge and "aha" moments to be had as well!
The content is so rich that you leave with the right information for what you are working on.
The Annual Member Conference was a fantastic opportunity for members to network, and learn unique content relevant to growing their businesses. Influential U is the space where you can practice special techniques and strategies in achieving goals within their organizations. Kirkland and John delivered essential messages that will help members grow their businesses and achieve personal aims. As always, GREAT JOB cannot wait until mid-year.
Want to be challenged to up all aspects of your Life Game by world class coaches in an exciting and sometimes unpredictable environment? The Influential U conferences are the place to be.
I attend every annual conference for two key reasons; learning and ecology. I am stimulated by peers of a type I would rarely encounter in my normal business ecology. It's the annual " check-up" on my Conditions of Life.
The Influential U Annual Conference is a brilliant arena to meet and work with some amazing people, all of which are focused on offering and accepting invites for help. The mix of powerful and truly insightful presentations and smaller groups processing the learning is a true deliberate practice opportunity not to be missed. The mix of personalities, life and professional experience is key to the power of the various activities and collaborations. An arena for playing and developing in a safe and supportive environment!
The annual conference is a wonderful grounding to begin the year, to reconfirm where I'm headed and to connect with people (familiar and new) who can help me get there or point me to needed resources or help that will.
Every Influential U conference is an highly valuable experience. As participants, we are taken on our own Hero's Journey where we get clear on what we want to accomplish (our aims) in life and at the conference, and we confront that we don't have a pathway to get there. Through a carefully designed environment and sequence of activities, we do the work with fellow participants (the real accomplishments come through teamwork), face the struggle, and emerge on the other side transformed. We all go home with a pathway and next actions articulated to accomplish our aims. It's not all work - we are networking, socializing, and having fun with an amazing community of highly-accomplished people that are eager to help each other.
The Annual Conference delivered a comprehensive and immersive experience to help me meet the aims I set out to accomplish. In unique fashion, it revealed pathways to solve breakdowns I hadn't yet been able to articulate. And once again, the conference was able to interweave play with the right amount of tension to produce more accurate thinking.
Influential U's conferences offer an opportunity to participate in a global ecology of help. Annual Conference in particular is not to be missed, which is why I haven't missed it in almost 10 years. The conference focuses me on what is most important to me and provides a rich environment to see that those aims are met.
