Important Changes to the Elevate Summits

At Blue Sky / Elevate we are dedicated to holding safe and exemplary events.  In light of the current state of affairs with COVID-19, we have made some fundamental changes to how we will deliver this Spring’s Elevate Summits.

  • We will hold only one in-person event this Spring in Salt Lake City on May 28, 2020.
  • We will stream this live event so it is available to all who wish to attend online, especially in Denver and Lansing, where we had originally been scheduled to hold in-person Summits.
  • We will make additional online education content available and will conduct online mastermind sessions for those who are not attending in person.
  • White papers based on these sessions will be emailed to participants and sponsors after the event as an added bonus.

Keynote Speaker for Trusted Advisor Summit April 30, 2020



Jennifer J Fondrevay is the Founder of Day1 Ready™, a consultancy that advises forward-thinking business leaders, owners and C-Suite executives on how to prepare for the human capital challenges of M&A. As a Fortune 500 C-Suite “survivor” of three multi-billion-dollar acquisitions, Jennifer has been on all sides of the deal equation. She saw countless growth strategies fail due to a workforce that couldn’t pivot and adapt as quickly as leadership anticipated.

When her Harvard Business Review (HBR) article, “After a Merger, Don’t Let “Us vs. Them” Thinking Ruin the Company” went viral, Jennifer recognized the power and interest in a human-centric approach to business transformation, where employees are at the heart of the change. She shares her expertise as a contributor to: Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Thrive Global, American Marketing Association, Middle Market Growth; and as a frequent podcast guest and keynote speaker for HR conferences, associations and Fortune 500 companies.
