A new year gives us all a chance to try something new. At CLI, we have three pillars: Connect, Learn and Grow. We’ve spent a lot of time sharing about all the great content coming, but as we start the new year, we also want to share how you can “grow” with us. We are excited to offer many opportunities where your voice, expertise, and experiences can shine to our larger community and the world.

So, without further ado, here are four big ways you can grow with CLI in 2024:

1. Speaking Engagements – Share Your Voice

Whether on-demand or live at our CLIX events, speaking engagements or on-demand courses present a fantastic opportunity to share your knowledge, insights, and experiences. This platform is not just a chance to enhance your public speaking skills but also a way to contribute to the collective wisdom of our community. Speaking on our platform allows you to influence and inspire our audience of 26,000+ leaders while positioning yourself as a thought leader in your field. It’s easy to start – just apply here.

2. Write for Our Quarterly Magazine

Our magazine is a treasure trove of the latest frameworks, ideas, and concepts, and we are always calling for contributors! Each issue features a focused interview with a notable figure in the industry and provides contributing writers an excellent opportunity to spotlight their own expertise and insights. We have had past contributors from the realms of community, customer marketing, customer success, customer experience and event professionals. Now it’s your turn to be included.

Whether you’re a seasoned leader or just starting your leadership journey, your contribution will add significant value to our community’s knowledge base. Contribute your magazine submission

3. Guest Contributions to the CLI Blog

Sometimes, content is timelier for a blog. As a guest author on our blog, when you submit content, it will also be syndicated to our weekly newsletter audience. This opportunity allows you to share opinions and topics that resonate with you and are valuable to the greater community. It’s not just about sharing knowledge; it’s about sparking conversations, offering new perspectives, and connecting with like-minded individuals. Your unique voice can make a significant impact here.

4. Networking through Match Events, Social Hours, and Private Dinners

Networking is key to personal and professional growth. CLI offers various networking opportunities, including match events, social hours, and private dinners. These gatherings are designed to help you meet fellow leaders, build your network, and create lasting relationships. It’s a chance to connect with peers, mentors, and potential collaborators in a relaxed, informal setting.

Learn about those events here and make sure we have your latest info on our mailing list updated.

Wrapping it up

In conclusion, 2024 presents a wealth of opportunities for growth and development for you. Whether through speaking, writing, blogging, or networking, each avenue offers a unique way to enhance your skills, share your expertise, and connect with fellow leaders. We are excited to see how our members will use these opportunities to grow and contribute to our vibrant community.

Here’s to your success in 2024! 🥂
