What's Your Legacy?
Legacy Institute Gathering 2017

Meet men and women as passionate about legacy as you are, discuss with them the practicality of building your dreams for real

A collaboration between Virgin Unite and the Legacy Institute

Registration Closes in...



Welcome to the Gathering 2017

The Legacy Institute created the Gathering to explore what can happen when a select group of powerful, like-minded individuals converge in a magical setting to think bigger, and to discuss how to revolutionise the way business, the environment and the social sector can work together to change the world for the better. To make history.

The Gathering attracts senior leaders, practitioners, service providers, administrators, governments, NGOs and researchers to explore the concept of legacy building, with the aim of strengthening our work and taking steps towards advancing legacy building around the world.

This Gathering is focused on the theme of crafting a living legacy and has invited special speakers to comment on each topic - from 'new frontiers in legacy' to 'doing philanthropy better'.

Come join us for the Legacy Gathering to see how we can change the world together.


There are no speakers at the Legacy Gathering, but there is no shortage of outstanding people willing to discuss your legacy with you

Regardless of where you're travelling from, generally the best place to fly into is Beef Island, Tortola (airport code BIS) and from there it's just a short boat ride to Necker Island.

If you'd like some assistance with travel or hotel reservations (especially if you're making the long trek from Australia) or if you'd like us to extend your stay somewhere in the British Virgin Islands or in San Juan, we'll be happy to make a suggestion for you.

The group will plan to check in any time after 4pm on Sunday and be out by noon on Thursday. The first sessions will be held on Monday morning.

Please contact Steven Sonsino with the Legacy Institute or Nicole Darsney with Virgin Unite for more details.
