DISCONNECT

March 26 - 28, 2018 | Palm Springs, CA

There is something about the desert.

Step outside Palm Springs Airport and the world slows down. The blue of the sky is interrupted only by the rust of the mountains, which shapes the horizon in impossible angles in every direction. There is more air here, more ground, more possibility.

For three days, we will think, act, eat and drink, and comb the sand for a new type of leader and for new lessons on leadership. There will be jaw-dropping activities, inspired speakers, and a gorgeous five-star hotel. There will be no suits, no Powerpoints, no boundaries, just the smartest minds in the industry figuring out together where to go next.
