Consumer Health Summit

May 5 – 8, 2020

Paradise Valley, Arizona

By Invitation Only

Created by Michael Fishman and now in its 21st year, Consumer Health Summit is an invitation-only event for founders who are leading and redefining health and wellness. Designed to accelerate business growth, it’s for visionaries who are on the cutting edge, have established themselves out front, and gather at CHS to ensure that they stay out front.

The Essence of CHS

Consumer Health Summit at its essence is a collaborative journey which explores the shared purpose of health entrepreneurs:

How to continue growing a winning business for maximum impact toward a specific long game;

High performance, customer-centric marketing;

Content and product development;

High-touch customer service;

Harnessing the psychology of health aspirations and habit formation.

“Consumer Health Summit absolutely changed my business and my life. The stellar content helped me to think bigger about Bulletproof, but the relationships CHS opened for me have led to some of my closest friendships with people who are literally changing the world. Without a doubt, my books wouldn’t have hit the New York Times list even once, not to mention twice. Michael’s advice has changed the trajectory of Bulletproof and helped to maintain the integrity of our message and our mission as the company keeps growing rapidly.”

DAVE ASPREY
Founder and CEO, Bulletproof

CHS assembles the leading founders and voices in health for 3 days to keep every participant and their business relevant far into the future. It’s a collaborative conversation among attendees and some of the most admired speakers in the world.

 

“Michael has a knack for gathering the foremost thought-leaders from a wide swath of the health world. And what makes them special is not only their deep acumen in the space, but their willingness to share all that they’ve learned. That is the essence of the Consumer Health Summit community.”

MICHELE PROMAULAYKO
Editor-in-Chief, Cosmopolitan; Former Editor-in-Chief of Women’s Health

 

“Thank you for orchestrating a masterpiece. Many thoughts of appreciation to you and your whole team in leaving deep, “epigenetic” memories of an amazing transformational experience.”

Founder, The Institute for Functional Medicine

The 5 Pillars

for which Consumer Health Summit is widely acknowledged and put its limited seats in high demand are:

INNOVATION

Throughout its history, the CHS community has been a reliable generator of innovation in delivering health information and products to its readers and customers. Participation at CHS is filled with inspiration and education for doing things differently, more effectively, and more profitably than has ever been done before. CHS is specifically crafted to spur innovation.

COMMUNITY

The leading founders who are invited to attend CHS are some of the most admired in the world, and do not gather elsewhere, even as a subset of another conference or community, at any time. Our speakers are rarely encountered at other conferences.

CHS is more than an annual gathering, it’s a year-round community and support system that elevates and accelerates its participants in a myriad of ways. The high level of collective trust enables dialogue and collaboration that is both ongoing and priceless.

PURPOSE

Participants at Consumer Health Summit are invited, in part, for operating purpose-driven enterprises. They have clarity about the way in which their personal histories have illuminated their purpose, and are committed to a positive impact in the world consistent with this.

TACTICS

CHS participants leave each year’s gathering with action lists of high value tactics and test ideas for implementation by their marketing and product teams, any one of which can represent expanded impact in the world and additions to revenue and profits measured in multiple 7 and 8-figures.

GROWTH AND IMPACT

Consumer Health Summit companies are led for never-ending growth and impact, as useful health solutions can never have a positive impact on too many lives. CHSers run companies that market for relationships, not one-time transactions . . . and they market and operate to initiate and nurture more and more new relationships each year. CHS companies are focused on a long-game outcome, measured in both positive human impact and the option of a well-earned transaction that benefits the founder and his/her stakeholders.

“The Consumer Health Summit is an absolutely fantastic event. I have been an attendee several times and I’ve also had the opportunity to speak there. Michael Fishman curates an incredibly valuable and super exclusive event for some of the top people in the health field. I have made some great contacts and developed some really valuable friendships from CHS. Every time I’ve attended I walk away with elegant ideas on how to improve my business, my health and my life. Michael holds it in a beautiful location and everything he does is a 5-star experience. It sells out every year because it’s just so damn good!”

“If you are someone who is destined to change millions of lives then your home is at CHS. Sure, you will network and collaborate when there, and yes you will advance in many measurable ways, but it’s not why I go every single year. I go for the lifelong friendships with people who are as crazy as I am. Ok, I also go for the karaoke too.”

“The reason I’ve accepted Michael’s invitation to speak at CHS 3 different times, and the reason I plant myself in my seat for the entire event, is because CHS is a gathering of pros. By pros I mean players … people who aren’t standing on the sidelines and watching . . . players who are in the game doing really big, excellent things . . . that’s who I insist on being around, and that’s who Michael invites to CHS.”

BO EASON
