Renaissance Weekend . . .

Transforming ideas and relationships. Incredible mix of preeminent leaders, passionate change-makers and rising stars of all ages. More than a conference: invitation-only, off-the-record. Non-partisan: All participants heard, all opinions welcome. More light than heat.

Extraordinary people inspire … and are inspired.
 

At past weekends,
