Kajabi Hero Live 2023: Speakers, Schedule, and More (Update #1)

May 07, 2023

One of the main things you need to know before all else: To attend KHL, you must be a current Kajabi customer. You can grab your 30-day free trial here. Honestly? I would sign up, pay for 1 month, attend the conference, and then decide whether to stay.

Of course, I think you'll stay. At Kajabi Hero Live, you'll see how amazing the company and their customers are and realize you belong nowhere else.


This is the 2nd post in a series re: the super exciting "Kajabi Hero Live" event taking place in Austin, Texas from May 30 to June 1, 2023. Links to all KHL-related posts are:

Kajabi Hero Live Austin 2023: Everything You Need to Know

Kajabi Hero Live 2023: Speakers, Schedule, and More (Update #1)

Kajabi Hero Live 2023: Complete Schedule of Events (Update #2)

There's a ton of information in that first post and also an explanation of what Kajabi is (if you're not familiar). So that's where I would start. Then read the updates since in the order posted. This is going to be one of the best live events ever!



I may receive commissions for purchases made through links on my site. Please see my full disclosure for further information.



Kajabi Hero Live 2023: A More Detailed Schedule

As with many large-scale events like this, you start with the minimum of details as things get finalized - venue, hotel room block, speakers, meals, etc. 

As of my last post, this was all Kajabi had shared about the schedule before (aka The Short Version):


Tue 5-30:   VIP-only sessions

Wed 5-31:   Keynote speeches, workshops, panel discussions, and exciting product announcements

Thurs 6-1:   Keynote speeches, workshops, panel discussions, and a special awards ceremony

But it can be hard as attendees to make travel plans without knowing things like what specific times the first and last events happen, etc. So I'm glad Kajabi has been able to provide a more detailed schedule now that we're about 3 weeks out.


Since the above, we've got more official statements of Kajabi, and now we have quite a bit more detail (aka The Medium Version), yay!:

Kajabi Hero Live - General Admission vs VIP; What's the Difference?

I'm sure you're wondering whether you should pay more for a VIP ticket to Kajabi Hero Live. So what extra things do you get if you buy a VIP ticket to Kajabi's conference?

  • Tue 5-30: You get that WHOLE extra day of VIP-only sessions. This includes a welcome from Kajabi's CEO, along with workshops by 2 very popular and profitable Kajabians, Ellin Yin and Graham Cochrane. There will be a sneak peek of new Kajabi features (be the envy of your friends! lol) and then an opening night networking party. I hear it will be on the rooftop of the Fairmont Hotel in Austin (the event venue) so I can't wait. Fancy fancy, schwa schwa! (Can you tell I don't leave the house much??)

  • Wed 5-31: VIP Lunch and Learn with the one and only Brendon Burchard. I've seen him speak in person once and on video many times. He's super motivating, a real ego-boost-in-a-package kind of human. I hope you get to attend this.

  • Thu 6-1: VIP Lunch and Learn with Ali Abdaal who's a hugely successful YouTuber and Kajabi user. I look forward to learning from him.

  • Opening night networking party (May 30th)

  • Reserved ballroom seating

  • Private Kajabi Hero Live community

  • Catered lunches each day

  • Exclusive Q&A sessions with keynote speakers

  • VIP swag bag


Either way, Kajabi Hero Live is jam-packed with goodness for learning about online business and personal growth! But in case you were trying to decide between the regular and VIP ticket, I wanted to outline the specific differences. If you can swing the VIP, I'd definitely go for it! The value is there.


Kajabi Hero Live 2023: More Information on the Speakers and Presentations

Since my first post re: the Kajabi Hero Live speaker schedule, a bunch of specifics have been added. Before it listed only Brendon, Ali, Priya, "(a)nd even more incredible Heroes we’ll be announcing soon."" ... now we can see the "more incredible Heroes" :)


Kajabi Hero Live Keynote Speakers

Here are your Keynote Speakers!!



Not only do we see the addition of the fab Jamie Kern Lima (who I saw speak at the last Kajabi event, the Impact Summit in 2019), we also now have - instead of just their bios (which you can see in my last post) but what specifically Brendon, Ali, and Priya are going to speak about. I'll consolidate everything here:


Brendon Burchard

Brendon Burchard is a high-performance coach, 3-time New York Times bestselling author [of High Performance Habits: How Extraordinary People Become That Way among others], and personal development trainer with over 10 million followers.

Brendon Burchard has made over 150 MILLION DOLLARS in his Kajabi business and will share his proven strategies for scaling your business.

Jamie Kern Lima

Jamie Kern Lima is a new addition - so far, it's only showing her bio. Guess we will stay tuned to see if they add her specific speaking topic ...

Jamie Kern Lima is a NYT bestselling author & founder of IT Cosmetics, which sold to L’Oréal in a BILLION-DOLLAR DEAL.


 My personal copy of Jamie's book which Kajabi so kindly sent to me!


I've linked each speakers' name to their website where you can learn more about them! (Just don't forget to come back here and finish reading this post, lol).


Kajabi Hero Live Panels and Workshops


Kajabi has also recently added this whole section to the page!! So not only can we see the original 4 panelists/speakers, we can see that many more people and live experiences have been added.

This is getting TOO exciting!!!



According to Kajabi, "Don’t miss in-depth discussions with seasoned experts." You can see the basics of each presentation above in the schedule.

Of course, I'll add more details in future updates if any more is revealed. 

Very Exciting News! Kenny and JCron Will Join Us Again!

These 2 appeared, separately and together, at the Kajabi Impact Summit in 2019. I have to say, they were some of the best things about the conference. Yes, they are THAT impressive, funny, and energizing 🚀. I'm SO glad they're coming back (keep reading ... details below!).

Some things have definitely changed since last time - they're now on the Kajabi board vs C-suite leaders - and I'm anxious to hear from them again, to learn more from their decades of experience with digital products, sales funnels, and more. We miss them so in our Kajabi community!



THIS TIME: "Get the true insider perspective"

Back by popular request, Kajabi Co-founder Kenny Rueter and Board Director Jonathan Cronstedt will be on stage at Kajabi Hero Live! They’ll share their insights on the creator economy and how Kajabi Heroes will continue to win in 2023 and beyond.

Kenny and JCron were crowd favorites at 2019’s Impact Summit for their real-talk and transparency. They pulled back the curtain on what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur on Kajabi, and they’ll do it again at KHL.


Kajabi Hero Live - Other Cool Stuff Happening

It sounds like you don't want to miss out on any of these happenings either: 

Live Hero Hub

Set up an appointment for a 1:1 session or join group workshops. [Your best option is to reserve a spot now before they fill up.

New Features

Be the very first to know about several brand new Kajabi features that we’ll launch at KHL. One of these new features has been the #1 request from Kajabi Heroes for years. KHL attendees get first access! [My money is on a new and improved checkout experience; how about you?]




BONUS INFO: Kajabi Hero Live Meetups

You know how much I love you, right? So much that I did some digging and compiled a fabulous list of some informal Kajabi events which are organized either by Kajabi or by Kajabi Heroes themselves! 

They include a half-day co-working session with a Kajabi wiz, happy hours, and other gathering and networking opportunities.

Can't wait to share those meetup details with you along with a complete, hour-by-hour schedule for the entire event HERE! This summit is going to be a next level, very special event.


Okay, phew! That's a LOT of information to digest and to keep track of for Kajabi Hero Live, am I right? Hope you find all this helpful as you either decide whether to attend, or if you're GOING, the next step which is planning your trip. Not a customer yet? Get your free 30-day Kajabi trial.
