Forward Progress, a Chicago influencer marketing company has blended the best of their Influencer development platform and their mobile event app to take a client’s annual event to a whole new level.


The Gathering, hosted by the Southern California Institute in San Diego California is having its 14th annual event. For two days professionals from nine different business disciplines gather to share insights, education, and collegiality. The Gathering is an annual event for all advisors in Estate, Business, and Wealth Strategies Planning. Because Southern California Institute is collaborative at the core, Forward Progress thought it would be great to take their Influencer match making strategy, along with their mobile event app, and apply it to match attendees, speakers and sponsors for ideal collaboration. The app will gather profile information from each attendee and use an algorithm to match those professionals to ideal collaborative partners even before the event kick’s off.


Forward Progress uses this app for their own events and thought it would be a great idea to offer to their clients. With Southern California Events, especially The Gathering, being so much about relationships and friendships, it seemed like the ideal scenario. The Gathering will host over 200 attendees, 29 speakers and connect 9 different business disciplines. When asked, Dean DeLisle, Founder and CEO of Forward Progress said, “How cool will it be to know who you want to talk with even before the event starts”. DeLisle has become well-known on a national scale as the premier business influencer specialist and has now launched a weekly coaching program known as the influence factory.


All presenters at The Gathering are experts in their field and are willing to not only collaborate on the mobile app, but also on social media. This will allow participants to collaborate on and “match make” on their smartphones, “This provides the ultimate Social Influencer experience for all involved.” said Dean DeLisle.
