Winning Group, CEO, John Winning, officially announced the global debut of Human Kind 2023, a three day immersive summit bringing together the world’s greatest industry leaders and changemakers, taking over Sydney’s iconic Luna Park, for three days from 16-18th March 2023.

John Winning made the announcement last night at the Winning Group event for supply partners, held at the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia.

With a vision to help reshape our collective future, Human Kind which will debut in Sydney and is a not-for-profit, will raise money for charity AIME. Human Kind  features an unbeatable line-up of events hosted by global heavy-hitters from world-leading neuroscientists to thought-provoking artists and others who have achieved incredible personal and collective feats. Among the 50 person line up announced, are local leaders and champions of change, including Nedd Brockmann, Ronni Kahn, Mark Bouris, Sarah Ellen, and Guy Sebastian and international leaders including Wim Hof, Global health leader and ‘Iceman’, Jim Jefferies who found international fame with sitcom Legit, Scott Galloway, one of the World's 50 best business school professors, Matt Mullenweg, Creator of WordPress among other incredible achievements, and Reggie Watts, internationally renowned musician, comedian, writer and actor.

Founder of Human Kind and CEO of Winning Group, John Winning  says, “Over 12 months ago we updated our company mission to better reflect our intention to use our business ecosystem for good and to create the best experiences in the world, for the world - for our people, our customers, our communities and for the planet.

I was excited to announce Human Kind to our supply partners last night and I was delighted to introduce them to Jack Manning Bancroft the Founder of AIME and Professor Hope, Professor of Imagination. AIME is a dynamic mentoring program supporting indigenous and non-indigenous students through secondary school and into university, employment or further education. Human Kind is a not-for-profit and last night I set a goal for the attendees in the room to contribute at least one million dollars to the cause. I was delighted with the response from our supply partners to Human Kind and who also want to use their business ecosystem for good, and help support our collective future.

I’m so excited to be bringing a plethora of stimulating experiences and building a community of incredible artistic talent, attendees and some of the greatest minds on the planet together in one place to create a fun and imaginative space where people can dream big, make meaningful connections, and enjoy some world-class arts, whilst giving back”, said Mr Winning.

Following the recent success of Andoo Comanche taking line honours in the SOLAS Big Boat Challenge and ​​Cabbage Tree Island Race in the lead up to the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, Skipper John Winning also revealed at last night’s event that Heckler has produced a six part documentary series on Andoo Comanche and the team’s journey, called Super Maxi: The Art of Winning, coming soon.
