The Emerging Spark

Co-founder, co-faciitator, and co-revolutionary

The Emerging Spark is the combined heart and compounded energy of Amy Videla of EMERGE LLC and Earl Gray of Sparkplug Coaching LLC.

The Emerging Spark is created from their common passion for interactive, discovery-based, participant-centered event approach as an alternative to sit-and-listen-to-a-lecture seminars and classes.

Being in the high oxygen atmosphere of discovery with others during an Emerging Spark event leads to increased individual momentum after the event. Opportunities abound - and they become easier to recognize and engage.
