About Us

Why Another Conference?

Frustrated by siloed conferences and unclear next steps, a group of professionals from various disciplines came together to create something new: an innovative, collaborative conference with a focus on practical application, open to everyone who cares about creating people-centered, thriving workplaces.

The Fusion 2.0 Conference was born.


Every part of the event has been intentionally planned to create a transformative experience while meeting the human needs for rejuvenation, physical activity, rest, and fun!

Who You’ll Meet at Fusion 2.0

A revolution is already underway in the business world, one where leadership, culture, safety and wellbeing are interdependent. The result is a more humane employee experience and an improved bottom line. Fusion 2.0 is for professionals who want to positively impact the people they serve and enhance organizational effectiveness.
