Rethink Conferences


Our Mission is to create the most brain-friendly conference in the world. In 2016, Inc. Magazine included the Summit in their list of the 10 most innovative of the year.

The Institute has hosted 14 events over 11 years, iterating and experimenting around the question of how to design a conference with participant goals in mind.

We believe a participant’s central goals at conferences are to discover useful new ideas and to create new connections. Because we ground our Summit in the latest neuroscience research, we ensure the format and content is in step with how the brain optimally learns and retains information.

Conference Principles

It turns out that if you apply findings from neuroscience to designing a conference, everyone gets a lot more out of it. Here are four principles of the NeuroLeadership Summit:

  • Ideas are like food – allow time for digestion
  • Social experiences are crucial – let people connect more
  • Do less, but do it really well – less is more sometimes
  • Work with, not against, the natural flow of energy – we have limits that need to be respected
