Introducing PICKLECON: The Conference For Creative Entrepreneurs

Updated Jun. 29, 2023 Published Mar. 20, 2019 2 Min. Read

This May, Design Pickle is hosting PICKLECON: The Conference for Creative Entrepreneurs — and we’re bringing you the must-have training on profit, automation, and scale.
These days, the world changes fast. While new tech is always impressive, it can be mind-boggling and (frankly) scary for any business owner. Just when you thought you’ve got something down pat, something new comes up.
So why not put our heads together, help one another, and learn from the best? PICKLECON is an opportunity for you to connect with like-minded movers and shakers: people who have felt the ground crumbling beneath their feet, and lived to tell the tale.
We’ll cover all the bases, from hiring, training, and leadership to strategy, branding, and finance.
So why should you attend?
This conference was 100% designed to level up and accelerate the creative entrepreneur. Our team plus a hand-selected lineup of incredible speakers will help you:

  • Gain the clarity and focus needed to elevate your business
  • Discover how to automate and scale your business
  • Learn from leading creative entrepreneurs and brands

We’ve invited friends and top creative entrepreneurs to share the stage and work with attendees directly. Some of our heavy hitters include:

Russ Perry | Founder & CEO of Design Pickle

Sam Parr | Founder & CEO of The Hustle

Jeremy Tyler | Former CMO of Wake Up Warrior

Maggie Hancock | Award-Winning Stylist

Deric Keller | Creator of Battlefield Boardroom

Olivia Luciani | Owner of Laced By Liv

Mika Perry | Lifestyle Blogger & Podcast Host

Chris Ronzio | Founder & CEO of Trainual

…and more special guests added daily!


PICKLECON is 2+ days of learning, work, and play. It’s not for everyone, though: we’re looking for those ready and willing to take themselves and their businesses to the next level this year.
PICKLECON is 13+ hands-on workshops will encourage you to push yourself to manifest creativity, discipline, and success. It will require work. You will be challenged. You will laugh. Some will cry.
But most importantly…PICKLECON doesn’t end when the conference is over. We aim to give you something you can take home to your team — value for your business, to the end of the year and beyond. The training team and speakers will challenge you and accelerate you into the second half of 2019.
