Introducing Pendulum Summit

We are delighted to announce that Pendulum Summit will return to Dublin in January 2023. The ripple effect of inspiration and transformation of this two-day event can be experienced in-person or virtually.

Pendulum Summit is an event like no other in the world. As a world-class, experiential gathering of international visitors celebrating the best of business, leadership, culture, inspiration and learning, it is no wonder why Pendulum Summit is now the world’s leading business and self-empowerment summit.

Since the inaugural Pendulum Summit Dublin in January 2014, the event has exploded from a one-day inspirational event with 500 delegates to a multi-day event extravaganza with an eclectic mix of 8,000 CEOs, Business Influencers, Senior Managers and Thought Leaders who have an insatiable appetite to constantly improve and revolutionise how they live and work.

The high calibre of our visionary keynote speakers embody the world-class nature of the event and have included some of the biggest around. Sir Richard Branson, Tony Robbins, Bear Grylls, Jack Canfield, Randi Zuckerberg, Perfumer Jo Malone CBE, Dr Joe Dispenza, Olympian Kelly Holmes and Dr Deepak Chopra are just some of the names that have spoken at Pendulum Summit Dublin, New York and virtually.

World-class speaker announcements coming soon!

CPD Accreditation

Pendulum Summit is CPD accredited by a number of institutes. This means that CPD hours and a CPD certificate can be awarded to delegates following attendance at the summit for inclusion in their CPD records for their professional body, institute, regulator or employer.
