Wes Chapman, co-founder of The Human Gathering, recently discussed several important differences that set their leadership conference apart from others in the industry. The Malibu 2023 conference hosted by The Human Gathering will be held March 30th – April 1st 2023. It is a 3-day immersive experience that gathers together the top minds in business, technology, philanthropy, science, education, and the arts. Their community is dedicated to leaving a mark on the world. Attendance is limited to 125 guests, by invitation only, taking place at a private estate in Malibu, California.
The Human Gathering was created to bring together a select group of individuals who are dedicated to leaving a mark on the world, and who have access to the resources necessary to do so. Unlike traditional events or conferences, every person who attends The Human Gathering has been curated. The founders and team spend a significant amount of time identifying the community and working to support them in accomplishing their endeavors. Together, they have fostered a community of incredibly influential people, all of whom care deeply about the impact they leave behind.
Wes Chapman discusses some of the pillars of success for The Human Gathering and what sets its leadership conference apart from other events.
Intimacy: Intimacy is a cornerstone of the Human Gathering, which is kept small and exclusive to encourage meaningful connections between attendees, speakers, and organizers. In order to ensure that all participants are able to fully engage in the conversations taking place, there is a limit of 125 guests who can attend by invitation only. This creates an environment that encourages open dialogue as well as collaboration between individuals with different backgrounds, beliefs, and perspectives. By creating this culture of respect and trust, attendees are given the freedom to explore and brainstorm without fear of judgment or criticism. Furthermore, each conversation can be held without interruption or distraction from outside sources. This allows for more thorough discussions to take place within a safe space where all opinions can be heard without consequence or repercussion. The Human Gathering provides an intimate setting where those involved can share their personal stories and experiences with others from diverse backgrounds in order to help create real solutions that have the capacity to make global change.
Diversity: The Human Gathering is committed to bringing together a diverse group of leaders from different industries, backgrounds, and perspectives. This creates a rich and dynamic environment for learning and growth. This provides a chance for those who would usually never have the opportunity to interact to come together and push each other forward. It allows leaders with different points of view to share their insights and knowledge, creating a vibrant learning environment. By bringing together so many different voices, The Human Gathering encourages people to think outside the box and discover creative solutions for complex challenges in our society today. Diversity also allows for micro-communities within the larger gathering – creating an atmosphere where participants from various disciplines can break away from the main event and join forces on specific topics or projects that interest them most. In addition to providing valuable interdisciplinary resources, this creates space for idea-sharing within these small communities. It ensures that no one voice is left out of the discussion and everyone has an equal opportunity to share their ideas regardless of their background or experience level.
Authenticity: The Human Gathering encourages authenticity and vulnerability among its attendees and speakers. The goal is to create a space where people feel comfortable being their true selves, sharing their struggles and triumphs, and learning from each other. Authenticity is one of the key pillars of The Human Gathering and an essential part of creating an environment that fosters meaningful conversations and real growth. To cultivate this quality, attendees are encouraged to be open and honest, to take risks with their ideas, to embrace mistakes as learning opportunities, and to genuinely connect with each other rather than simply present arguments or opinions. Each speaker is given ample time to share their personal stories in order to create a sense of understanding for all parties involved. The Human Gathering has also implemented various activities such as group discussions and reflective moments throughout the conference in order to build stronger relationships between attendees and gain valuable insights from different perspectives. By creating a space where people feel safe enough to be vulnerable, authentic connections can be made so that powerful solutions can be found for societal issues.
Experience: The Human Gathering is designed to be an immersive and transformational experience, rather than just another conference. Attendees are encouraged to engage in experiential activities, such as mindfulness practices, outdoor adventures, and creative workshops, to help them connect with themselves and others on a deeper level. Experience at The Human Gathering is more than what you’d expect from a typical conference. There are no passive attendees here – everyone is actively engaged and open to learning. By taking part in experiential activities, such as guided meditation, yoga sessions, nature walks and expressive art classes, participants have the opportunity to develop a deeper personal connection with their environment. Furthermore, they can explore new ideas and perspectives throughout the event. The Human Gathering also invites a range of guest speakers and facilitators who provide unique insight into the subjects discussed during the event. As an added bonus, attendees can enjoy delicious meals prepared by top chefs while soaking up majestic natural surroundings. This holistic approach encourages creative problem-solving skills and promotes collaboration between like-minded individuals interested in bringing about lasting global change.
