Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes...
the ones who see things differently - they’re not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things...
they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius,
because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world,
are the ones who do.
— Steve Jobs

The Visionary Program was established in 2011 to seek and develop leaders who are interested in promoting the mission of the Hilton Head Institute as well as ensuring it a permanent place in the community.  The Hilton Head Institute strives to serve as a catalyst for positive change; establishing who we are and what we do by positively impacting the communities in which we live.  For those who would like to engage at a level beyond our one-year membership program, we invite you to become a Visionary Member and be a leader in the future of our Institute.

Creating dialog and providing leaders with the tools necessary to meet the challenges of today’s world are critical to...

Addressing challenging issues that are:

  • Nationally and globally significant
  • Shaping and will shape us as people 
  • Global life-changing forces
  • The most difficult issues confronting society

Bringing people together through:

  • A forum to exchange ideas
  • The cultivation of dialog between innovative leaders
  • The utilization of Hilton Head as a place for forward-thinking people with unique and diverse perspectives to meet and share values

Being a catalyst of change by:

  • Yielding actionable responses that are accessible, relevant and effective
  • Attracting leaders to come together who have the ability to impact the next generation
