The Second Brain Summit

Where the cool kids talk about productivity, notetaking & personal knowledge management

100% virtual, 100% free

We’re here to address the biggest bottleneck to whatever you want in life

And that’s your ability to process, manage, and prioritize the flood of information that’s washing over you every second of your professional and personal life.

The bad news: It’s only going to get more demanding.

The good great news: There are ways to free up your biological brain so it can do its best and deepest work. To move from mindless consumption to meaningful contribution. To live your life with ease and less stress.

The Second Brain Summit brings together the world’s leading experts and thought leaders to show you different ways to build a Second Brain and finally clear the mental clutter.


Hosted by the Forte Labs Team

I’ve spent more than 10 years researching and personally experimenting with a new way of organizing our digital lives and improving our productivity.

My mission is to help you harness the full potential of your ideas so you can achieve your goals and lead a more fulfilling life.

Fortunately, I’m not alone anymore in this quest. The thought leaders and experts you’ll meet at the Second Brain Summit share this critical mission.

Join us for a full week of deep dives into all things personal knowledge management and productivity.

Hi, I'm Tiago Forte

Creator of Building a Second Brain

Who should attend?

Knowledge workers

Anyone who wants to succeed in our digital, hyper-connected world 
and create meaningful work


A Second Brain is a trusted place outside your head where you can collect and organize your most important information, ideas, and insights. 

This way, you’ll harness the full potential of what you know, do your best work, and make the impact you want to make. 

The ultimate goal of building a Second Brain is to help you lead a more fulfilling life with more ease and less stress.
