How Summits and Creativity Can Grow Your Business - Larissa Russell

Show Notes

In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast, I speak with the founder of CreativeU and ‘Summit Queen’ Larissa Russell.

Larissa had worked in the creative field for three decades, but it was only after being hospitalised for depression, that she realised its true healing power for herself. She then took the decision to create her own business, CreativeU, to bring together her passion for art, her degree in Psychology and her own personal experience, to help others heal, grow and change their life for the better through creativity.

Through her business journey, she has found the love for collaboration which led her to create and run many successful summits.

Now dubbed, the ‘Summit Queen’, Larissa helps entrepreneurs learn and master the art of running Summits, so they can use these events to grow their business, whilst bringing huge amounts of value to their community.

Listen to this episode to learn Larissa’s advice on how mastering your creativity will make you a better entrepreneur and how running summits can help you grow your business.

Your summit attendees are not going to just show up and start engaging all by themselves. You need to lead that engagement. - Larissa Russell
