Dedicated to showcasing leaders who are as humble as they are successful.

Up2 aims to inspire greater humility among those in leadership positions and are convinced that the most effective leaders are those to whom we can relate.


Founded in 2011Up2 was formed with the hope that by convening leaders from business, government, and the non-profit community, more people of influence could practice their leadership with true humility.

Since that time, Up2 events have taken place annually, convening interesting and accomplished leaders who come to share what they each are ‘up to,’ interviewed in brief, authentic sessions throughout the evening.
