The Hero Round Table aims to inspire and show people how to be heroes at work, in their community or in the world. It’s the largest event globally dedicated entirely to talking about the psychology of heroism and people performing heroic deeds. The London team is excited to bring this to the UK and a capital city for the first time, so join us from the start!
Engaging 12-minute TED-style talks, longer keynote presentations or panel discussions and plenty of participant and speaker interaction/networking. There are also hour-long breakout workshop sessions to choose from before and after lunch on day two.
10am – 5pm each day, registration from 9.30am.
Whilst one-day tickets are available, we hope you’ll join us for the full two days! Networking, creating partnerships and building a hero community are an important part of the event.
The event attracts people from very different backgrounds and walks of life, which is part of its unique energy. Attendees are united by shared values such as making a difference, positivity, authenticity, community, personal responsibility and a growth mindset. Executives, academics, students, teachers, social entrepreneurs, not-for-profits and other interested individuals all participate.
There will be ~20 speakers for the London Hero Round Table - here are just some of those confirmed already. Follow us as more are added each month.

Along with the usual team of Matt Langdon, Scott Mixer, and Thomas Sartor, the London event is in good hands on the ground. With many Hero Round Tables between them, Katherine and Dan are ready to debut the event in their home town of London.
