Seat deposits will be fully refunded when you attend Visionary Business LIVE! Paying your seat deposit allows a spot to be secured for you, as this event will likely sell out. Additionally, it allows the team to do pre-event planning to ensure we are adequately staffed, are prepared for any special needs, and set up to serve all who attend, which equals a valuable and positive experience for attendees throughout the event. Refunds will not be given to seat deposit registrants who cancel prior to the event for any reason. However, policy does allow seat deposits to be transferred to another person on or before October 10, 2019, to enable a friend or colleague to attend in your place.
Regular Event Ticket:
When you buy a full price ticket* to Visionary Business Live you are taking absolutely no risk because your investment is backed by our personal 100% satisfaction guarantee. If unexpected circumstances make it impossible for you to attend the Visionary Business LIVE! event in November 2019:
- You can receive a credit for your ticket purchase against any of Ryan’s future live events or one of his training programs.
- Another option is to transfer your ticket, to a friend or colleague, which allows him or her to attend in your place.
- If neither of these two credit options is acceptable, just let us know prior to October 1, 2019, and you can receive a refund of your purchase, minus a modest $20 bookkeeping fee. (After October 1, 2019, your ticket investment will be applied as a credit toward a future live event or program, due to contractual obligations with our event venue.)
* This does not apply to seat deposits. See below for our policy on seat deposits.
