Adult: VIP $285 Silver $185 Bronze $99

Ryan Holiday is a New York times #1 bestselling author, host of The Daily Stoic & former American Apparel marketing director.

He has directly influenced Super Bowl-winning teams like the New England Patriots, NBA Champions like the San Antonio Spurs, and Olympic Gold Medalists, as well as sitting Senators, military leaders and some of the biggest and most important companies in the world like Google, Twitter and Microsoft.

At the core of Ryan’s teachings is Stoicism, popularized through his NY Times Bestselling books including Obstacle is the Way, Stillness is the Key, Ego is the Enemy, and his latest, book Discipline is Destiny. What is Stoicism? The idea that while we don’t always control what happens to us in life, we always control how we respond. Illustrated vividly with stories from the greats (and not-so-greats) of history, Ryan provides a framework for overcoming obstacles, scaling new challenges and battling both the ups and downs and life. Profiled by the New York Times, Sports Illustrated and ESPN, Ryan counts among his clients and followers some of the biggest names in business, tech, culture and professional athletics.

Join Ryan Holiday as he shares his unique insight and perspective on a variety of topics include…

… timeless art of turning trials into opportunities to grow and improve.

… the destructive effects of ego and how to replace it with humility and quiet confidence.

… practical philosophy of Stoicism, the secret weapon of history’s great figures, from emperors to artists and activities to fighter pilots.

… the Four Tenants of Stoic Leadership: Wisdom, Courage, Temperance and Justice
