August 22 – 24, 2019


What if we were able to make everyone participate in the process of improving the state of the world? What if we could create structures that allowed many more people to profit from quantum leap innovations? How would those structures have to look like? And more importantly, how would we have to define quantum leap innovation?

Devoted to spreading creative leadership and positive change in the world, Sonophilians are aware of the need to create a collective mind-shift in society and organizations. We are also aware, that we need to ask the hard questions while creating strong alliances to tackle them. Because we know that one should;

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

– Margaret Mead

So, once again, Sonophilians are getting together for a weekend of undisturbed, honest and intensive exchange to discuss and develop creative strategies and new collaborations that will further constructive change.

HOW TO GET AN INVITE: The Sonophilia Creative Leadership Forum is an invitation-only event. Invites are granted only to those who have been suggested through a member of the Sonophilia Network.

Wow! 🎬 Before the Sonophilia Summer Retreat even really started we had already a great gathering at the Salzburger Kunstverein with inspiring Art before new and old Sonophilians met for dinner! Thank you for this wonderful first day in Salzburg, Seda Röder! ❤️💙💜In the next two days we will explore creative synergies between arts, sciences, tech and business in the secluded setting of the Austrian Alps. Stay tuned... ✌️🤓👍
