    Edison Talks is a specially curated day of mind-bending speakers, engaging performances and unique experiences that will push you to explore the cutting edge findings of society, business, academics, art and technology. CIW’s premiere event features extraordinary presenters sharing stories and ideas designed to shift the way you experience the world.

    How can illusions teach us to approach life with both wonder and skepticism? How does an acclaimed director turn a rich film legacy into a museum accessible to the public? Have you ever truly considered what it means to be “on the same wavelength” with another person? Join CIW as we explore the edges of achievement, justice, acceptance, the universe, human potential and more through the stories, research and insights presented by these boundary-pushing individuals.

    This year's Edison Talks are proudly presented by U.S. Trust.  At U.S. Trust, we connect our wide range of capabilities and insights to our clients' values and goals, an approach that has been trusted by generations of families for over 200 years.
