About

Our mission is simple: Present great on-stage conversations in the Los Angeles area with writers, filmmakers, chefs, artists, leaders, humorists and comedians, musicians and thought leaders in business and science,  and present them in some of the city’s wonderful venues.  We video all our events and make them available to a wider global audience after our events. Since 2010, we have presented over 250 events, and our videos have been seen in 156 countries with over 12 million views. You can watch our videos on YouTube, Vimeo and also on Facebook. We also have a podcast.

We have a dedicated series featuring chefs, our Live Talks Food & Wine series, and a dedicated series featuring CEOs and business thought leaders, our Live Talks Business Forum.

Our newest offering is our Live Talks Newer Voices Series that features debut authors and these events are free to attend.

Through some of our events, we support worthwhile literacy and educational causes that are making a difference in the lives of Angelenos. In so doing, we also hope to help raise awareness of the great work these organizations are doing in our communities and enhance their base of supporters, volunteers and donors.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
