The curriculum for Be Sage conference is carefully created every year. Topics are based around the questions and challenges of established wedding business owners. Speakers are selected for their expertise and knowledge in the subject material. The goal is to educate wedding business owners on ideas and thoughts presented nowhere else in the industry.
