The Superpower Summit is the newest, premium full-day retreat experience from sparkspace where you will discover your “Ordinary Superpowers” and learn how to activate, enhance, and multiply your powers to achieve your greatest results yet!
What are "Ordinary Superpowers"?
Ordinary Superpowers are the unique set of abilities, talents, and skills that:
- Come naturally to you.
- You're better at than most.
- Help people (including you).
- You love using.
They’re called “Ordinary Superpowers” because they very likely seem simply ordinary to you, but they can – and will – help you achieve truly extraordinary results in your life.
What kind of results? Your specific results depend on what you truly want. One thing many people do have in common, however, is that we often find fulfillment in the feeling that we are living up to our true potential and positively contributing to our world.
The Superpower Summit is designed to help you maximize your impact throughout your life by identifying, understanding, and using your Ordinary Superpowers to their fullest.
Is This Retreat Right For You?
The Superpower Summit is for business professionals who:
- Are always busy, yet never feel like they are advancing or fulfilled.
- Want to feel passionate and excited about work again.
- Desire to bring their strongest, most authentic self to life.
- Are ready to maximize their impact in their workplace, home, and community.
While we know this event has wide appeal, most of the participants will be experienced professionals with at least several years of work experience, including senior associates, mid- to upper-level managers, directors, and VPs.
"Who doesn’t want to be a superhero? This event opened my eyes to the importance of recognizing what makes each of us special and making sure we nurture that so we can become the best we possibly can be."
— Allen Lloyd, Ohio Society of CPAs

"The Superpowers event helped me to realize we all possess something special. Working with others helped me identify things about myself that I didn't even realize were superpowers. We all have something unique to contribute."
— Amber Tran, OhioHealth
"The Superpowers event reminded me that insights and “aha’s” are the currency of any personal development work we pursue. My “aha” was a reminder that language sets an intention, not hope, and words provide action, not apathy"
-Connie T. Chwan, Pure Direction, LLC
"Mark is an enthusiastic and engaging presenter who guides you down the path to realize the magnitude of your personal powers. It is so refreshing to focus on our powers vs. trying to fix everything that is not a power. I also had a chance to network with other professionals who I would not have met otherwise. Great event! I highly recommend it."
—Cynthia Stayrook, Author, Speaker, Coach

Who attends The Superpower Summit?
We get a range of business professionals from many different industries. The one thing they have in common is that they really desire to contribute more and get more fulfillment from work (and life). They often know they have a lot to offer, but feel a little stuck at the moment. Typical age range is 30-50, fairly evenly split between men & women.
How long is the event?
The event starts at 8am and typically ends by 3pm. You are welcome to stay at sparkspace until the end of the day. Many of our participants will hang out in our space to decompress, do some further exploration, check their email, or even get to know other participants better before they leave.
Is there any "pre-work" before the event?
No. We've made The Superpower Summit a self-contained event.
Is there any follow-up after the event?
Every attendee will receive two items to help them in their ongoing development. One is a copy of Mark's soon-to-be-released book on Ordinary Superpowers. The other is membership in The Rockstar Academy, an online membership website with hours of webinars, podcasts, and helpful tools.
