Hugo Salons offer relationship-based learning experiences for small groups who want to learn from an expert at a top research university. In the era of social media and click bait, adult friends can form real bonds with both their mentor and one another.
Hugo Salons allow small groups to revisit the great works of Shakespeare, prepare for a family vacation by learning about your destination from an expert, or dive into the headlines to gain context on complex topics like immigration, health care, and climate change. Like all Hugo Mentorships, Salons are completely customizable and based on learners’ needs while still providing the ideal structure to facilitate success.
Hugo Salons are also excellent growth opportunities for corporate teams. Team leaders can work with us to design Salons for employees based on topics relevant to the workplace, including emotional intelligence, motivation, and communication. They can also benefit from exploring traditional liberal arts subjects such as history, literature, science or art. Studies show that employees who have opportunities for learning in the workplace are happier and more productive. Hugo Salons also foster team-building through relationship-based, growth-oriented learning experiences with professors at top research universities.
Hugo mentors are available to work with adults 1:1 or in a variety of small group settings. Like other mentorships, Hugo Salons are completely individualized and tailored to your interests.
