THE NEW ERA OF (RE)GATHERING
Companies and organizations are looking back at a year of cancelled in-person retreats, holiday parties, and Bring-Your-Kid-To-Work-Days, among many others. As we enter the next normal, how do we re-gather? How do we ease the apprehension? How can companies develop a hybrid meeting and event culture that equally engages those back in the office, and those employees permanently working from home? How can we build connection among colleagues that have never met in real life? In insightful conversations with companies and groups from across all industries, Priya Parker answers important questions on how to rethink and rebuild a post-pandemic approach to gathering.
