A pre-conference networking reception and dinner will be held from 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM on Wednesday, November 4th at Hotel Durant in Berkeley. Tickets are $75 per-person and can be purchased along with your conference registration. 


  • Learn about the latest research and the stories from leading companies who have led purpose driven companies during times of accelerating change. Gaining new insights about best practices, interventions that build an organization where Purpose is an expression of Values.  
  • Understand the impact of an overarching purpose that provides the unwavering beacon during those dynamic, fast changing times on a global basis, where aligning behind a Purpose becomes a way to support cross cultural understanding and appreciation.  
  • Demonstrate how HR can take the lead in building a purpose-driven organization by engaging the leadership first in driving this shift and then orchestrating a process for aligning everyone behind the Purpose both through reinventing and then adapting to a purposed driven culture.   
  • Identify specific approaches and applications for bringing purpose into their own organization; and then creating a dynamic, tangible action plan for implementing purpose for themselves, their teams and their organizations
  • Moving from Purpose to Impact: In small groups, share best practices and lessons learned, have the opportunity to connect with colleagues in a highly experiential and impactful way, and then commit to implementation with peer group support.
  • Synthesize and integrate knowledge acquired and applied during the year-long program to-date.
