Magical, yet completely practical. Exhilaratingpacked with learning. Full of intelligent, creative, and fascinating people.

What a wonderful finale to an obviously stimulating weekend. Music, poetry and dance. The room was buzzing. I had such a great night-- it was fantastic. Great spirit in that room.

Being disconnected from technology led to real connection with other attendees and made the keynotes, breakout sessions &

panels more rich an impactful

EPIC provided an opportunity to engage with others from an interdisciplinary perspective, which allowed me to think about my personal and professional life from new angles. The unplugged component made a significant difference, as it encouraged more conversation and opportunities for 'pause'.  I left with actionable ideas.

Fantastic opportunity to interact with some of the most creative thinkers in the world. Attendees from all industries and walks of life really made the workshops and discussions during our meals so interesting.

EPIC International Summit was absolutely amazing! From the location to the attendees---it was beyond expectations.

David Shaw,

Loved how education, entrepreneurship and entertainment were unfolded at a very high level and in playful ways. It provided access to 'other worlds' and ways of thinking--clearly showing lots of similarities too where ideas can cross-pollinate. Super, super, inspiring.

Lene Jensby,

CEO, Autins; Denmark

It was such an honor to receive the EPIC Innovation Award for Community Engagement. Being recognized by some of the most intelligently creative people, gathered for the sole purpose of stimulating ideas and answers was a humbling experience.
