The Hero Round Table is a worldwide event series that inspires and instructs people to do extraordinary things. 

We put together top speakers with people of all walks of life and challenge them with the question - what is a hero? And how can more people do heroic things in our world?


"The stories from last year will leave a permanent imprint on me."

— Sonja Olshove, Professor from Michigan



The focus is on numerous high energy and punchy TED-like talks designed to inspire, motivate and showcase individual and everyday heroes and heroic initiatives. These sessions are presented alongside a series of practical workshops aimed at empowering attendees by providing them with the skills, knowledge and courage to stand up and be the heroes in their own lives and communities.


Most importantly, the Hero Round Table has created a worldwide community dedicated to practicing heroism. We have spurred academic research on what makes people do heroic things, and we help regular people act on what we've learned. We spread a simple idea: that you have the power to make a change when it matters most.

"Everyone there is making a difference.  It’s something I love being part of."
