This isn't a conference, it's a conversation

For those of you that joined us in October for the 2020 Livestrong Icon Summit, you've seen the power of bringing diverse, creative minds together to solve previously unsolvable cancer problems. Whether you're ready to continue the conversation or are joining us for the first time, we welcome you to pull up a virtual seat and explore solutions related to Nutrition and Exercise.

More details coming soon!


Why Innovation Conversations?

INNOVATION - At Livestrong, we are about finding solutions and we believe that the best solutions are created when you bring together people with deep knowledge of the problem, give them a space to imagine bigger, and connect them with generous disrupters. At Icon we bring together the survivor experience and some of the most disruptive and energetic minds working in all facets of the cancer space to create powerful solutions.

CONVERSATIONS – To find the right solutions, we have to understand the problem. And to understand the problem, we have to listen to a variety of perspectives and experiences. At Icon you will hear from tech startups building new technology, non-profits filling gaps in local communities in new ways, and impact investors changing the way we fund these solutions. But this isn’t just a panel of speakers talking about what they are doing. These are conversations with you – small breakout sessions centered on listening and idea sharing to solve cancer problems which simply don’t deserve to exist.

Learn from the best and brightest

Keynote Speakers and Breakout Session Facilitators will include technology leaders, brilliant medical minds, impact investors, and survivors and caregivers living with cancer today.

Small Group Breakout Sessions: Share your perspectives and grow your network

We know that when we work together, incredible things can happen. That's why the event will facilitate opportunities to network with other system-disruptors in a small group setting. You'll have the option to share your contact information to keep the conversations going! There are small group sessions at both virtual and in-person Icon Events.

2020 Icon Series Highlight Reel

John Gould, from the Chicago Methodist Senior Services, and I had a terrific conversation last week. We first met virtually through the Livestrong conference.

We are going to partner on the birdhouse project. His group will create birdhouses and share them with Gilda's Club in Chicago. Living Proof Exhibit only has one staff member so this is a great way to Make Hope Soar!

He is going to share our virtual sessions with his clients and I will provide them with a supply list so that they can actively participate in our sessions. He is also going to connect his clients who are cancer survivors to our annual exhibition. We have several people who live in Chicago who participate every year. I'm thrilled to increase this outreach!

This pandemic has been exhausting, but if you all hadn't moved the conference online we would have never connected.

Thank you!
