the party scientist

Unite your guests
with the science of
interpersonal joy

my expertise

imagine this

Imagine your guests completely involved, putting down their phones, and connecting in ways they haven't before. All while feeling a sense of fun instead of work.Imagine them telling you afterward: "I've been to hundreds of conferences and this was the most impactful opening." Imagine them asking you: "When is the next one?!"The norm is starting your meeting with speeches. Instead, kick off your meeting by reinforcing joy & belonging.
