    Talks are 90-minute electrifying, action-inspiring onstage programs, featuring four to six world class thought leaders who each present ideas on a single theme through either an individual presentation or a one-on-one conversation with a host.

    It’s easy to think of a genius as a lone person in a room who comes up with a brilliant idea—but that’s rarely the case. We often forget about the elbow grease and collaboration that goes into creating things that we refer to as “genius.” In the same way that it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a world to create a genius. Discover how genius manifests, and how transformative minds from a diverse group of industries have unlocked the genius inside themselves.
