A unique community of extraordinary people

We believe that people change people, and this belief is at the core of our experience design and approach to our community.

Too often, we work and live in silos; we carefully build our guest list each year to ensure diversity of experience and thought. Each year, of the 150 leaders who attend, we aim for about half to be first-time participants, bringing fresh perspectives and inspiration to our core community.


Our Partners & Advisory Board

The Performance Theatre's work is supported by contributions from our partners and hosts. Our advisory board builds and nurtures our community, and helps shape our agenda.

Our approach

Our goal is for our community approach to inform richer conversations. A typical table discussion might bring together CEOs of some of the world’s largest companies with artists, policymakers and activists.

We always dedicate a portion of our places to tomorrow’s leaders – intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs – who are applying their talents to achieving a new kind of growth.


A community is like a ship – everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm.
