“Once every five years we get to recalibrate with fellow Scholars. Not to be missed!”  – David Akinin, 2008 Scholar (coming all the way from Namibia!)

“I am so excited for another Leadership Summit! This will be my third time attending and each experience has been absolutely amazing! I leave inspired, more deeply connected to this phenomenal community, and with my cup so full that I feel like I can do anything. I can’t wait to experience the summit again.”  – Erica Tuggle, 2001 Scholar

“I loved the variety offered and it was WELL worth my money to come back and be re-inspired! Can’t wait to attend next time!”  – 1996 Scholar

I’ve been part of the Coke Family for nearly 20 years, and I have never seen any other organization dedicated towards the growth and success of its own community. It’s a humbling experience to be around such accomplished and diverse individuals.”  – Sandeep Shah, 2006 Scholar

“This is where I come to get a rejuvenated sense of purpose and to enjoy a fun trip down memory lane with some great friends and mentors.”  – Victor Agbafe, 2015 Scholar

“The last Summit was just the right cocktail of camaraderie, inspiration and laughter that I needed to double-down on my career. I can’t wait to get back to Atlanta and reconnect with this incredible band of changemakers.”  – Daron K. Roberts, 1997 Scholar

“This will be my second Summit. The first was five years ago and pre-pandemic. It was uplifting and rejuvenating for me and I look forward to the same energy and vibe!”  – Molly Uhlenhake, 1998 Scholar

“The Leadership Summit…it’s just not optional! It’s a chance to pour into myself surrounded by incredible Scholars, hearing from inspirational speakers. Who doesn’t want to return home refreshed – a better person for their family, friends, and co-workers!?!”  – Ben Nicol, 1999 Scholar

“I can’t wait to reconnect with the innovators and industry disruptors in the Scholars family.”  – TJ Abrams, 2001 Scholar

“Leadership Summits are so much more than the most inspiring speakers and educational sessions… It is professional development that truly moves the needle and personal development alongside the greatest humans I know. I’m overflowing with anticipation for all that this year’s event has to offer and the opportunity to (re)connect with all of my Coca-Cola Scholar Family!”  – Krystal Kappeler, 2009 Scholar

“Every attendee at the conference is of value, representing leadership and vision of their field in a variety of ways. I paid out-of-pocket to attend this conference including the hotel, transportation, and food. Most conferences I am covered through my job, a nonprofit organization, university, or private donor. However, this was the first time I fully funded myself to attend a conference and I feel proud. I cherish the conversations and experiences a lot more.”  – 2015 Scholar

“By far the best conference I have attended. Absolutely amazing speakers, attendees, and group buy-in.”  – 2008 Scholar

“This was the best conference I have ever attended. High energy in everything done, high production value, variety of topics and speakers, something for everyone.”  – 1991 Scholar

“A room full of Coke Scholars is the definition of extraordinary. Each Summit creates the opportunity to connect with other scholars and expand our capacity as a human to do more, give more, and be more. The summits are pure magic!”  – Kristina Gisonde, 1999 Scholar

“It’s magical to be in a room with Coke Scholars; the energy is infectious and brings out the spirit of unconditional happiness to engage with other thought leaders.”  – Kaitlyn Chana, 2009 Scholar

“I’m coming to network with brilliant humans that care about leadership, service, and community.”  – Nicole Knott, 2003 Scholar (coming from London!)
