Still have some questions about the Empower Conference and the Consult Series?

Great—because we’ve got answers!

What is the Consult Series?

The Consult Series, Imagine the Possibilities, is a unique learning opportunity for our Associates and their team during Your Hearing Network’s Empower Conference. It is comprised of two tracks, one for Owners and Hearing Care Providers and another for staff members.

The Consult Owner and Hearing Care Providers track includes a Consult YHN members-only, full-day session on Thursday, September 12 and then folds into the Empower Conference where Associates follow Consult YHN’s 14 business development sessions.

The day-and-half-staff track on Thursday and Friday, September 12 and 13, will focus on teamwork and communication. The Consult Staff Track will arm your personnel with the necessary tools and knowledge to create, capture, and maximize opportunities.

What will I learn during the Owner & Hearing Care Provider Track or the Staff Track?

The Owner & Hearing Care Provider Track, along with the Empower Conference, includes two-and-half-days of essential leadership and strategic planning content, insights, and tools in order to uncover opportunities to increase your revenue and profit. The day-and-half Staff Track engages and develops your team to ensure they understand the mindset and behaviors necessary to provide a superior patient experience and contribute to your practice’s growth.

When and where will the Empower Conference/Consult Series be held?

The Conference and the Consult Series will be held at Disney Coronado Springs in Orlando, FL starting in the morning on Thursday, September 12, 2019. The Owner and Hearing Care Provider Track will run through the entire Conference, ending Saturday, September 14, while the Staff Track will end on Friday, September 13, at noon.

How is Empower different from other industry events?

While many industry events tend to have one focus, Your Hearing Network’s Empower Conference combines our industry’s three pillars  – Clinical Focus, Business Development, and Technological Advancements – into one, unprecedented event. With nearly 100 sessions to choose from, attendees can create a custom schedule that best suits their individual needs and interests. Additionally, it will include two motivational and business-focused keynotes and a trade show featuring more than 50 industry-specific exhibitors.

Will there be a keynote speaker?


Mid-Day Keynote: Leading sales management strategist and bestselling author, Lee Salz, will deliver the mid-day keynote, “Differentiation: Your Secret to Winning Sales at the Prices You Want.”

Evening Keynote: The evening keynote speech will focus on more general content with a motivational message (more details to come).
