This is the world’s only series of conferences on heroism, featuring speakers from around the globe. In the U.S. and Australia for 2015.

Brighton, Michigan: September 18 and 19.
Geelong, Victoria: November 20 and 21.

What is it about?

The opposite of a hero is not a villain; it’s a bystander. Every community in the world, big or small, can use more heroes. These two days will show you how to make that happen.

It’s a bit like a TED conference mixed with a little piece of a ComicCon and a dash of your favourite training event. Speakers from around the world present their perspectives on heroism – their experiences, strategies, or research.

What kind of people will be there?

People like you.

If you were at a previous event, you may have found yourself sitting next to a 10 year old student or an octogenarian Holocaust survivor; a business owner and their employees; a world renowned expert in psychology, philosophy, or education; a community activist or a community member; a ninja or a magician, someone from your neighbourhood or from across the world.

Then what happens?

People have walked away from this event inspired, educated, and connected. They have taken action. One group created a hero club at their school, one woman started a Twitter account to share positive actions in her community, one woman launched a nonprofit organization to create heroes in her town, and one participant quit his job to help her.
