Take a stretch of an imposing five-lane highway and make it innocuously merge into four lanes. Repeat the lane reduction at short intervals, until only a single lane remains.

Among my favorite, signature events are immersive ‘Re-Imagine’ dinners for small groups of VIP attendees. These 4-hour long experiential journeys combine the thrill of team cooking, round-table discussion that I facilitate on the topic of re-imagining boundaries, and a culinary indulgence reflecting the key themes of the dinner conversation. I facilitated one such event earlier this month with rousing results.
