Alt Summit is many things to different people and it changes over time. Alt created its flagship events to bring together a community of pioneering and rookie bloggers, social media influencers, and creatives where amazing things could happen.

To plant the seeds for amazing things to happen, Alt delivers more sessions and opportunities for networking than you can attend (and absorb). Each attendee and speaker choses their own adventure based on their goals. Six attendees, from first timers to second and third-time veterans share their experiences from Alt Winter 2015. 

A first timer, Ashley of Let’s Mingle, recounts the highlights, from the Wednesday dinner with a sponsor, the sessions, and the evening events.


Another first timer, Amye of Mon Amye, left Alt Summit unsure if it had been worth it until she experienced FOMO (fear of missing out) during Alt Summer. Her three takeaways define what Alt offers: validation, potential, empowerment.

Three veterans share their reflections and how they continue learning at each event:

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
