Summit LA 2017 turned out to be a whirlwind of thought-provoking metamorphic ideas, awe-inspiring energy, liberating acceptance, grounding authenticity, and countless serendipitous interactions all in the name of humanity. Summit appeared to be a conference for current and future global thought leaders to learn and teach the importance of practicing “good” once in a position of power and influence. Participants were subconsciously being trained to lead with courage, boundless thinking, respect, and open hearts to ultimately make the world a better place.
Upon registration, all participants were asked to set an intention for the weekend which quickly shifted mindsets from those of professional advancement to those of personal growth. Multiple event hosts encouraged these otherwise high-powered, structured, and busy professionals to be present, go with the flow, and trust the process. Another suggested approach included focusing on character instead of achievement.
