About this Event

How we connect with each other has changed significantly since the advent of the personal computer. But what about how we connect spiritually? The Symposium is an opportunity to explore the underlying themes from diverse perspectives.

More information about the topic to follow.

Who are we?

The Symposium is a think-tank for emerging tech and philosophy. We bring to life an ancient Greek ritual to explore technological advancement and its consequences for the human state. Our roundtables engage senior leaders, specialists and professionals in order to challenge conventional thought and make a positive impact. Our community comprises of professionals from big tech (FAANG), government bodies and innovative startups.

We hold 2 different types of events (a) industry #leaders and (b) general #reflections for individuals to debate and ideate.

This is a #reflections Symposium for technologists and humanists to reflect on what it means to exist in today’s technologically advanced world. Our goal is to amplify positive values and promote sustainable growth as a species. This begins with conversation.

The Symposium format:

Advancement (What can we expect?)Disruption (Growth and decline in markets, industries or sectors/who are the disruptors, and who is being disrupted?)Ethics and Philosophy (Who will benefit? Is it sustainable? Why?)

Why is there a cost?

Each participant at The Symposium pays an equal amount for their seat. Wine and canapés are included. You will have access to high-quality personal content.
