Twice a year we transform our Bay Area design center into a theater, and dedicate a day to the amazing achievements of the thinkers & leaders around us. We pick 5 remarkable CEO’s to tell stories. It’s 50/50 ted talk & late show... Incredibly smart people telling their remarkable story, in a fun format. The theme vaguely maps to Design / Innovation / Achievement, but really any extraordinary deed will do the trick!  

Here’s a difference from TED, Summit, NRF, CES etc. this is not a commercial venture... There are no vendors, & no one is buying or selling, and there are no tiers of membership.  Just smart people, awesome stories and great wine. 

This spring we have 5 amazing speakers, each with a narrative that will amaze and delight.
