The goal of ESH Media is to cut down the time between new-found

knowledge and the impact it can make


We build conference brands, create content formats, curate speakers for events and publish impact-focused content.

Our goal is to develop media that features new knowledge, changes views, and goes beyond the ideas to influencing.

ESH is a purpose-driven media venture and our profits are reinvested in ESH Media’s social mission — closing the knowledge-impact-gap .This way we are independent, self-sustainable, and we have editorial freedom.



It’s about getting the right actionable ideas
to the right people in the right time and the right way.

ESH Media original conference formats



Co-hosted by Professor of Behavioral Economics and bestselling author Dan Ariely, and ESH founder and curator Maya Elhalal-Levavi (מיה אלחלל לבבי), Bubbles is a late-night format that mixes hard questions about life with whisky, music and humor.

The ESH Gathering

A carefully-selected group of pioneers from diverse fields and from around the world get together for an immersive weekend in a remote location to debate visions for the future.

The ESH Gathering is for people who can’t help but wonder: if the right group of people with the right minds got together in the right way, what could happen?

We seek out the most knowledgable people asking the best questions,
those whose thinking, experience and skill position them to be a leading voice.

Professional Conference Services

To scale up our mission of cutting down the time between new-found knowledge and the impact it can make, we take everything we know from developing original conference brands and offer organizations a set of professional conference services. This way we can feature more new knowledge, bold thinkers and ideas-whose-time-has-come.

The professional conference services we offer include:

Conference Development

When we work companies and organizations we start by gaining a deep understanding of a your culture, values and goals. We study the ecosystem, your market, your offering and who your customer is. Finally we want to know how you measure success, and the specific behavior you want to influence.

Then, we run the brief through the ESH conference format development process and create a detailed blueprint that’s designed around your message and goal.

A good experience begins with the invitation, sometimes months before the first speaker walks on stage, and it shouldn’t ever really end – it lives online and the conversation is carried forward  by the community.

We love being involved with every detail, and happy to take off your hands the building of the brand, the marketing plan, designing the online presence, managing the registration and ticket-sales, leading the production and the post-production. The project ends when all photos and videos have been edited and uploaded, and a conference guide has been handed over to you.

Next we curate speakers for the conference program –>

Speaker Program Curation
Tomer Foltyn 2013Jun05 Google Techonomy 277

We seek out the most knowledgable people asking the best questions, those whose thinking, experience and skill uniquely position them to be a leading voice. Our goal is to tell the overarching story of the conference with a diverse and well-balanced lineup of speakers.

Some speakers are established authority, big names, known published authors, and often we love to surprise the room with new voices and undiscovered talents.

The right MC (Master of Ceremonies), host and panel moderator tie the program together and make all the difference. We can recommend them too.

Demonstrations, artistic performances, and audience engagement activities are the final touch to the conference program.

Next we work with the speakers to develop their talk and with the MC on hosting the event –>

1-OF-A-KIND Keynote™
TEDX Tel Aviv

1-OF-A-Kind Keynotes — this is where ESH magic sparks. We work with speakers to develop a talk or a workshop that can only be given that day, in that venue, to the very specific mix of people in the room, and for the purpose they got together that day.

A 1-OF-A-Kind Keynote is a you-had-to-be-there moment that can’t be recreated, or re-lived by watching a video.


Conference Licensing

Sometimes the right conference format for the experience you want to create is already out there, and it comes with developed brand awareness that enhance your brand values.

We’ve worked with conference brands like TEDx, Failcon, Techonomy and The Behavioral Economics Summit for Startups.

We know the space of conference formats internationally, how to license them, localize them, manage the relationship with the global brand and curate a speakers program to fit the format.
