Receive updates from Wisdom 2.0
There is a revolution occuring in how we view and relate to work.
This new movement is questioning all our assumptions about what it means to develop and operate a business. Elements like mindfulness, wisdom, and compassion are no longer seen as superfluous or useless, but as integral qualities to include in any for- or non-profit endeavor. People are increasingly seeking work that is meaningful, engaged, and where their deeper life purpose is aligned.
Our sold-out event last year brought together 275 leaders and changemakers at Google's NYC offices. We are pleased to come back this year, with an expanded venue.
Join a select group of business leaders and entrepreneurs for Wisdom 2.0 Business to explore the latest trends in innovation and wisdom in business!
