Priya Parker

Be transformed. Join the author of The Art of Gathering for a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will show you what it means to make meaningful connections.

Why she’s the right human

Priya believes a gathering is a form of leadership. And that if you can develop the capability to create and lead purpose-driven gatherings, then you can help change workplace culture. She’s said, “When you gather well, one of the outcomes is you create a sense of belonging. When you create a sense of belonging, you increase your retention rates. You decrease burnout.” Yes. All of this!

She’ll lead a highly interactive event where attendees will learn and experience how to connect with one another in a meaningful way. This kind of workshop is something prior attendees have requested – and Priya is making it happen.
