"Wisdom 2.0 is a conference tackling one of the biggest challenges of today's age. Connect through technology, but do so in a way that supports a person's well-being, work effectiveness, and is ultimately useful to the world."
— Inc Magazine
Wisdom 2.0 addresses the great challenge of our age: to not only live connected to one another through technology, but to do so in ways that are beneficial to our own well-being, effective in our work, and useful to the world.
Through our series of conferences, meet-ups, and workshops, Wisdom 2.0 strives to bring this conversation to the world in an accessible, innovative, and inclusive way.
Wisdom 2.0 offers a year round series of events and gatherings including:
1) Our annual Wisdom 2.0 Conference, held in February each year in the Bay area. This is our flagship event, bringing together over 3,000 people from 24 countries. Our 2016 event was held February 20th - 22nd, Marriott Marquis, San Francisco, CA. 2017 TBD.
2) Wisdom 2.0: The Intersect, October 20th-23rd, 2016, Fairmont Orchid, Waimea, HI

Soren Gordhamer, Founder of Wisdom 2.0
The people at Wisdom 2.0 come from all over the world and from many vocations, including coaches; technology staff from Apple, Microsoft, and Twitter; as well as venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.
Participants share a common interest: to live with greater wisdom, purpose, and meaning,
while using technology in ways that create a more open and healthy culture.
Speakers come from a variety of sectors, including technology, wisdom traditions, neuroscience, game development, and more. Past speakers have included the founders of Facebook, Twitter, eBay, Zynga, and Paypal, along with wisdom teachers from various traditions.
Wisdom 2.0 explores topics that cross sectors, borders, and party lines. In previous years we've explored wisdom in society, veteran's rights, education, coaching, mindfulness in tech, politics, business, neuroscience, and much, much more.
The events as much about making connections between people as about the presentations on stage. There are many opportunities to connect with people who share your interests, and explore overlaps and potential projects.
Every year we also throw a party (or two!) where people can connect, play, and enjoy both dance and silliness.
