Gain knowledge.
Dive deeper.
Laugh your ass off.
Be inspired.
Shake things up.
Make new friends.
Connect with the people who will change the course of your life.


At this conference, it's about creatively introducing a big life topic, and then letting the attendees transform into a beautiful life lesson. Go deeper on the topic with the person sitting next to you, then sit back and absorb the knowledge flowing out of the dynamic group discussion that follows. Expand your understanding of others, change your perspective on what matters, and ultimately raise your consciousness.


...Imagine listening to a 9/11 firefighter talk about responding to a horrible moment in history and then reflect on the topics of fear, loss and community.


...Watch as a Broadway performer gets real about continuous rejection, and then explore all that you have the power to overcome.


...Embrace the lessons of a prolific writer and get curious about the story you present to the world.

One conversation could change the course of your life.

What to



Unlike traditional conferences that talk to you, the Human Connection Conference talks with you.  Keynotes and panel discussions are great, but true knowledge is gained when people engage in meaningful conversations with each other.  While profound insights will be shared from the stage, your personal transformation will unfold one intimate, yet powerful conversation at a time.

Who gets us


The Human Connection Conference is led by world renowned speaker, critically acclaimed author and award winning entrepreneur Stuart Knight.  With almost thirty years of experience facilitating dialogue amongst people from all around the world, he is a master at igniting conversations that unleash the collective wisdom in the room.

Business Conference

Table Talks

Let’s face it, people attending The Human Connection Conference are those who want to raise their consciousness.  With that approach to life comes fresh perspectives, lessons learned and value to offer.  By engaging in meaningful conversation with those very people, you will be given the chance to expand in new and unexpected ways.

Hot Seat

At multiple times throughout the conference, Stuart invites an audience member to join him on stage to engage in a deeper conversation on a topic of their choice.  During these colourful, and often emotional exchanges, Stuart will draw out important messages by facilitating comments from the crowd, while interjecting with valuable lessons from his own life.  Things fire up with the hot seat!

Networking Event

Stories that heal

For thousands of years, growth, learning and a chance to heal happened because the right story was told.  Some were funny, while others were heartwrenching, but by the end the listener was left with a deeper understanding of themselves and the world they live in.  


The Human Connection Conference will harness the power of storytelling by tapping into the life events that shaped the people in that room.  It may be a story of love, perseverance, forgiveness, failure or a near death experience for all we know.  In all cases, these stories will give you a chance to be inspired, let go and to know you’re not alone.

"Free for all" connections

It would be a shame to bring amazing people like yourself together for three days and not create moments that can surprise and delight.  Whether it’s over breakfast, during a break or while celebrating our accomplishments for the day, you will consistently be given the opportunity to have a meaningful connection that could change the course of your life.  It could be a question of what happens when we die, or how to create greater happiness, just know that at this conference, we won’t be talking about the weather!
