Participants are guided through their scenarios by experienced personal and professional coaches. Observational learning is also gained as they observe scenarios with other attendees. 

    Special guest speakers share life-changing tips and strategies that address areas of interest for the participants.

    Every participant receives customized experiences for each day they attend.

    All participants receive an unforgettable, life-changing experience.

    Getting Lao'd

    After 25 years of silence, the private Lao music and film industries are reawakening. Filmed over 10 years, the documentary follows a new generation of young pioneers as they reimagine Lao media in a communist country. The film features many of the country's most prominent musicians and filmmakers, and is perhaps the most comprehensive examination of the media landscape in Laos.

    Many neighboring countries in Southeast Asia have seen their music and film industries remain vibrant. Media in Laos, however, remains shrouded in mystery due to its land-locked geography and restrictive political environment. This documentary provides an extremely rare look at a new generation that tipped the cultural fulcrum – it is a story about a small country with a big heart.
