Where Philadelphia’s Leaders and CEOs Build Lifelong Relationships and Experience Rapid Growth
Reserve Your Seat
Our Mission

What are Luminary Dinners?

Hi, I’m Todd.

Since I was a kid, I’ve been driven by a fierce passion for bringing together people who share common ambition and values, and connecting them with people and ideas that can positively impact their lives. 

I bring this passion to life with Luminary Dinners.

At these events, Philadelphia’s leaders and CEOs come together to expand their knowledge, refine their decision making skills, strengthen their leadership qualities and overcome obstacles to rapid growth.

+ Small but awesome group of purpose-driven business owners and leaders
+ Conversations around building businesses that make an impact and leave a legacy
+ Meet the most wonderful, successful and influential people in Philadelphia
+ A chance to get feedback and support on overcoming obstacles to rapid growth

Any business owner can talk about growth in their business. They chase after it. Analyze the numbers. Make small adjustments to their plans and strategies. Then they repeat the cycle until something “happens.”

If you’re in it for more—if you want to achieve meaningful growth in all areas of your life—and are willing to undergo serious self-reflection, challenging exercises, and thoughtful personal critiques that are necessary to make it happen—come to a Luminary Dinner.

Each month I select a group of Philadelphia’s top-tier founders and chieftains from wildly different industries to come together to push each other to do better—to get out of their comfort zones and challenge each other in unconventional ways.

If you’re the type of leader who takes full responsibility for your life and understands that your own faults and virtues are key to your company’s success, you’ll want a seat at the table (and the seats are limited).

If you’re serious about growth and ready to try something different, reserve your seat now. 

If you were not given an invitation code by our host (Todd Staples) or a Luminary Dinner alumni, you will be sent an application upon payment. We welcome new guests, but are fiercely protective of the culture of each event. As such, we reserve the right to reject any seat request. If this happens, you will be promptly refunded in full.

The Next Luminary Dinner starts in...

What People are Saying

“My life is better because of Luminary Dinners.”

“Todd’s events have been a tremendously positive experience in my life. To date I’ve met some of the smartest people I know including business partners, strategic advisors, and friends. Todd makes a deep investment in the people he brings together, specifically curating each person’s personality, talent, and values to best fit his night’s event.

Nick Eubanks, I’m From the Future

“Unique insights that produced impressive results in my business (and my life)”

“Todd’s unique insights about mindset and his tactical step-by-step action plans have both sparked millions of dollars in growth for my businesses. If you have a chance to get in a room where Todd is talking, jump on it. ”

Justin Lofton, Zen Fusion

“Refreshing and worthy of my time investment”

“I showed up to my first event not knowing what to expect. I left with several new connections and follow-up action steps. It was refreshing to get into conversations with other business owners in different business life cycles, but all faced with similar issues.”

Greg Wood, CFO Alliance

“Supportive in growing my business”

“I continue to be impressed by the quality and diversity of people attending Todd’s events. Everyone I have interacted with has been very supportive in helping me grow my business. It’s been a great peer to peer advisory experience for me. Can’t wait until the next event!”

Charlie Poznek, Expert Dream Team
