The new world of work

Today looks nothing like yesterday. The world of work has changed forever. The only way is forward. It's not a matter of trying to rebound but rather learning to Unbound your thinking.

Business Unbound

Change is not optional. How you change is the critical question. We have to revisit, revise, and replace yesterday’s thinking with fresh, human perspectives. The organizations and people who embrace change with unbound thinking are those who will thrive today and beyond.
read our vision

Innovation Unbound

Over the past 20 years, we’ve been committed to helping companies take an unbound approach to business so they can remove constraints and adapt quickly with the right people, skills, and training. Our acquisition of Saba, a global leader in talent solutions, puts you in an even stronger position to evolve and grow through continuous learning, actionable data, and workforce agility.

Community Unbound

The Cornerstone community is made up of smart, diverse, and passionate people. When we all come together to connect, share ideas, and have fun, amazing things can happen. We're excited to join you in the rich conversations and networking opportunities at Convergence.

F.A.Q.

Answers to questions you may have about Convergence.

What is Cornerstone Convergence Unbound?

For two days, you'll join a shared virtual experience with the newly expanded Cornerstone community for plenty of learning, connection, and fun. You can attend nearly 50 sessions, across two time zones, from industry speakers and surprise guests. And as the first virtual Convergence, you can attend from anywhere that has halfway decent Wi-Fi. Best of all, it’s free.

When is it?

Cornerstone Convergence Unbound will take place on September 16-17, 2020.

How much does it cost?

Nothing. It's free! There's no cost to attend.

How do I log in to the event?

We'll email your login instructions a few days prior to Convergence.

Who are this year's Convergence speakers?

The lineup of speakers will continue to update and expand. Keep checking back as we get closer to the event.

Can I access the sessions after September 17?

Yes, all sessions will be available to view on-demand after Convergence has ended.

Will Convergence 2021 be virtual too?

As of now, the plan is for Convergence 2021 to be an in-person event held from May 11–13, 2021 in Los Angeles, California. ​
