Human Intelligence: Bold Leadership for a Purpose-Driven Future

Sept 26-27, 2024

“A leader is anyone with an audacious idea and the courage to work on it.” – Sue Muncaster

Technological dominance and the way we work, communicate and live is being rapidly reshaped. This unprecedented pace of change raises profound questions about our humanity and how we show up as courageous leaders and community members, both now and in the future. 

Join us at the Fall Summit, entitled Human Intelligence: Bold Leadership for a Purpose-Driven Future where we’ll gather to explore the frontiers of human possibility, organizational transformation, and cultural shift. The Tetons will provide an inspirational backdrop for networking with business-minded individuals and entrepreneurs interested in spurring innovation to enhance our communities and environments, and create a roadmap for personal, team and systems transformation in this rapidly accelerating, uncertain, and extraordinary world. 

Learn from world-class speakers, transformative workshops, facilitated discussion with regional coaches and leadership experts, and social networking events.
