To survive and thrive as a global community in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis,
we must be technology-enabledbusiness-focused, human-powered, and society-embracing.

Lightning conversations are 10-minute (or “a bit longer“) fast-paced opportunities to share perspectives, explore insights, and discover guidance for practical impact with guests who we sadly could not integrate into the live June-19 event as well as guests who we sadly could not offer deep-dive conversations.

We embrace natural entanglement with dynamism, curiosity, breadth & depth, and appreciative yet critical engagement from a place of respect & “care” (awareness, energy, and commitment) while naturally interrupting each other, pushing & pulling, talk over each other, and “dancing in the moment”  to reveal wisdom.
