Practical Learning for 2021 And Beyond

Micro-workshops are 90-minute fast-paced, highly-interactive opportunities to share perspectives, explore insights, and discover guidance.

The immediately-actionable practices & techniques you learn will catalyze highly-impactful results on your group or organization.

Reflections 2020 & Foresight 2021

Additionally, with the intention of continuing to cultivate community, we are offering a pro-bono symposium (“mini-conference within a conference”) composed of two plenary panels in-between the micro-workshops.

Our Sep 30 2020 was organized as a nonprofit global virtual conference event where all were involved on pro-bono basis. For Dec 9 2020, 50% of the proceeds from the micro-workshops cover speakers and 50% cover production/marketing costs, with any remaining funds being donated to a worthy cause. This is a nonprofit event for the organizers and hosts.
