Thanks for listening to this new episode of The People People Podcast featuring an audio exploration of a Jeffersonian Style Dinner experience with guest, Lara Smedley.
You're one of us, aren't you? You're a people person. But you get that being a “people person” isn’t just about being chatty and smiley and super-duper nice, it’s about transforming the world through relationships. You're one of those people who understands that HUMAN CONNECTION is the key to everything. You're one of those people who understands that humans are social animals, and we're all deeply longing for real, meaningful, deep-spirited connection in all aspects of our life. You're one of those people who understands that the secret to creating the world you want is found in your ability to connect. You're one of us. We are people people. And you found our show.
Have you ever participated in a Jeffersonian Dinner? Let me tell you about this truly one-of-a-kind event I was a part of recently... In fact, let me take you on an audio adventure into the event, and then we’ll talk with the creator of this “Sunset Dinner Experience” produced by Smedley Events, Lara Smedley.
This thoughtful gathering was for one purpose — human connection — strangers gathered in a breathtaking setting, enjoying inspired local cuisine and drinks, and engaging in guided conversation around a shared topic (“Legacy”).
Apparently Thomas Jefferson was known for putting together events like this. They probably didn’t include Colorado sunsets and perfectly timed rainbows and such a fascinating group of folks from all age ranges and life experiences. I was honored to be asked to moderate. This is #socialexcellence in practice.
Enjoy this episode that includes raw audio from event, a deep interview with the creator of the event, and some tips for creating a powerful gathering based on what was learned at this one.
Thanks for listening!
