Israel and Palestine Open Quest 2020

Exploring the balance: life and history in Israel and Palestine

Open Quest

06 - 11 June 2020

Join us to explore life and history in Israel and Palestine.

Why Israel and Palestine?

The Middle East is associated with age-old conflict. Yet it’s also home to leaders who are healing divides with tenacity and compassion, and innovators who are building a new global future harnessing AI to transform business and society.

We’ll spend six days in the company of religious and secular Israelis and Palestinians – entrepreneurs, academics, tech visionaries, community leaders, artists, political figures and diplomats.

We’ll seek to understand the history of this land and its people, and the state of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict today. We’ll also explore the reality of daily life within each society.

This is a chance to challenge our preconceptions about others – and ourselves – and consider the subtle complexities of identity and connection.


“What I found most valuable about this, is that it was profoundly transformational for me as an individual and by extension as a leader. It helped me question who I really am and shone a light on my leadership style - and it did so in a very subtle, yet powerful way.”

What is a Quest?

A Quest offers a mix of memorable, on-the-ground activities and meetings with exceptional leaders. People who are tackling some of the toughest problems facing the world today.

We visit social enterprises, global brand names, entrepreneurs, revolutionary start-ups and buzzing communities.

We combine these visits with daily reflection sessions, to dig deep into our roles and opportunities as individuals. What’s our capacity to transform ourselves? How do the choices we make influence our physical, emotional and spiritual growth?

Out of these shared reflections come insights about our place in the world – and what we can achieve in it.

A Quest stimulates all the senses. It prompts energising - and sometimes challenging – questions, in a spirit that is open, trusting and supportive.

Participants come from all levels of all sectors – multinational firms, NGOs, tech accelerators, investors and grassroots organisers, government, the arts and academia. Each of them is looking to enhance their ability to show up at their best – at home, at work and in their communities.
