ESH Media conferences are for people who can’t help but wonder:
if we asked the right questions now, what future could we imagine
and then engineer into reality?

Human Progress

Human progress may be on the verge of a tipping point. We can’t know for sure, but emerging technologies already make possible fantastic innovations that profoundly change life, and they’re improving at a rapid pace.

These changes add up to a curve that is steeper than many businesses and organizations are ready for, and it will impact our daily experiences sooner than we realize.

ESH trajectory


Our goal is to cut down the time between new-found knowledge, emerging science, breakthrough technology, and the economic and social impact it can make.

We develop conferences, curate speakers for events and publish conversations about the future. ESH creates media for the people who need this knowledge to make a real difference, and go beyond ideas to influence.



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, Bubbles is a late-night format that mixes hard questions about life with whisky, music and humor.

AHEAD-OF-THE-CURVE Conference Services

Each industry faces unique challenges applying emerging technologies to innovations. We pack everything we know from developing ESH conferences, and create custom programs for each organization we work with.

Our goal is to get you ahead of the curve and the conference services we offer include:

Can you turn fast?
Minor and frequent correction of course, or a complete re-thinking of how you operate — agility is the one competency all future-ready organizations share.
Fast enough to beat the curve?
To go from keeping up to leadership, a broad and early understanding of the changes brought on by emerging science and exponential technologies is needed.
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 development process and create a unique format and program for your organization, to apply the changes brought on by exponential technologies, to be ahead of the curve.

First – we design the conference format
Then – we curate the speakers
Finally – we work with each speaker to develop a 1-OF-A-KIND-Keynote for your needs

Licensed Conferences

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.

MCs & Moderators

We curate master-of-ceremonies, conference hosts, panel and debates moderators and work with them to tell the overarching story of your event as they lead the room through the program.

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.
