Renaissance Weekend

Renaissance Weekend

Illustrative Topics

Incredible mix of preeminent authorities & rising stars

National powerhouses. Tomorrow's disrupters. Incredibly well-informed fellow participants.

"A playground of ideas"

Less a conference, than "mini-university" or reunion of an extended family of highly accomplished individuals. Vibrant chatter, quiet conversations. All come-and-go as they like.

Dazzling lectures, candid discussions, in-depth seminars

Participants tailor-make personal schedules, from several plenary sessions & many simultaneous programs throughout each day. Lively discussion; decidedly relaxed tone.

Urgent issues of our times & essential questions of human experience

Business and finance, international affairs, government & politics, medicine, science & technology, religion & philosophy, energy & the environment, literature & the arts, non-profits, philanthropy & NGOs, journalism, media & entertainment, health & fitness, technology, psychology, travel, and family legacies & concerns. See Illustrative Topics below.

"Rocked my brain & lifted my soul"

Each Weekend, highlighting unique competencies of individual participants, is organized about two weeks before the Weekend, when a Tentative Program with several personalized assignments is e-mailed to participants. The final Program is only available at Registration.
