    •And 50+ more.

As the last note on the list mentions, these are only a brief highlight of the 70+ person lineup of global CEOs and CMOs, presented by WORLDZ organizers PTTOW!, an invite-only network. Labeled as a "Harvard for Culture", WORLDZ aims to spread knowledge, inspire change, and facilitate partnerships through their heavyweight lineup of leaders.

"We are scouring the earth looking for the innovators, the dreamers – and the rule breakers who are shaping the world of tomorrow." says PTTOW! and WORLDZ Co-founder & CEO Roman Tsunder. "We are creating a year round community and summit uniting leaders from global brands, start-ups, and tech companies along with artists and creators to learn and take action to do the NBDB (Never Been Done Before)."

This summer's 2nd edition comes after last year's inaugural event that saw support from an eclectic group, encompassing everything from pro skaters like Tony Hawk and Rob Dyrdek to the musical side - DJ Kaskade and legendary producer Quincy Jones, to name a few.

To get a better sense of what to expect, check out the recap video from 2016:

As you can see, the event seems pretty legitimate. As every event tends to make improvements after the kickoff year, we can only imagine the one-of-a-kind experience that PTTOW! has in store for attendees, who are dubbed as "Tomorrow's Leaders". Activities will include: mainstage keynotes, curated one-on-ones, master-led courses and workshops, an individualized curriculum, experiental activations, outcome-driven exchanges, and a post-event action plan.

The Master Courses offered last year looked exciting at first glance, and makes 2017 highly anticipated. We're particularly thrilled for the variety of workshops, yet to be announced, but a handful of 2016's master courses had names like "Turning an Audience into a Fan Base: The Power of Building an Empire" led by FOX CMO Angela Courtin, "People, Products, Pings - Designing the Mobile Future" led by Foursquare, or "Neuroperformance: Unlocking Your Brain's Potential" led by CEO of Halo Neuroscience, Dr. Daniel Chad. To reiterate, these were from last year's schedule, but further indicate the awesomeness that is sure to transpire.

In other words, it certainly sounds like an extraordinary networking opportunity. Yet perhaps more importantly, it presents a powerful chance to learn from some of the best creators in a world that resembles a different planet than it was just ten years ago. As our economy shifts towards a shared structure, our cultural dynamics are changing and entrepreneurship seems like it is almost becoming a necessity. WORLDZ appears to unite the forward-thinking community that encourages creativity - using both sides of the brain - in making choices for your career ventures, whatever your dream may be.
