What to expect

A 2-day immersive learning experience 

Learn the skills they never taught you in school from your favorite creators in productivity, creativity, and personal knowledge management.

Inspiring Keynotes on Transformational Ideas

The world’s leading creators, teachers, and authors will share their latest ideas with you, drawn from personal experience (not just theories).

Deep Dives and Q&As with Hands-On Coaching

Your favorite creators will become your personal mentors for two days, helping you solve your biggest challenges in hands-on workshops and interactive Q&As.

Experiences Designed to Deepen and Create New Friendships

Meet your online friends (and make new ones) with impromptu meetups, intimate small group dinners, and a series of unique experiences we are curating just for you.

We’ve designed everything about the Second Brain Summit with YOUR experience in mind – we promise this will be a turning point in your career and life.

No keynote speeches written by ChatGPT that are little more than a sales pitch.
No wading through 20 sponsor booths before you reach the main event.
No awkward “networking” with people who are trying to get something from you.

Venue & Accommodation

Join us in the heart of LA’s downtown fashion district

Since our physical environment shapes our thinking, we couldn’t have wished for a better location than this 1920s loft. Its wide open spaces and natural light will encourage creative breakthroughs and serendipitous “hallway conversations.” 

We’ve reserved rooms for you at a special rate at the AC Hotel and Moxy Hotel, just a block away from our venue. Did we mention the pool and open rooftop with incredible views of LA? 

Hosted by the Forte Labs Team

Hi, I'm Tiago Forte

I’ve spent the last decade researching and experimenting with new ways of leveraging digital tools to fuel our creativity.

My biggest breakthroughs and mindset shifts have always come from collaborating with others who share my goals and values.

For years, I’ve dreamed of bringing the incredible community we’ve built in the virtual world into the physical world.

Now we’re finally making it happen – I invite you to join 500 of the most dedicated experts and practitioners of personal knowledge management in the world’s creative capital to discover what technology is now making possible.

For the full story behind this event, check out my blog post on how it came to be.
