The Abound experience is rooted in maximizing impact and enhancing community. This is highlighted by the annual summit. This intimate gathering brings together a diverse set of participants whose varied pursuits and accomplishments contribute to the fabric of the community.
Hosted in the beauty of the Napa Valley, new ideas and frameworks are introduced. The summit is limited to a small number of individuals to ensure an intimate setting and strong connections.
In addition to the facilitated content, lifestyle events are curated to enhance experiential learning and shared experiences. The intent is to distance participants from their daily distractions and to bring them to a space that allows for critical thought and innovation. Through this, the most optimal outcomes are achieved.
The inaugural year is condensed to a half day of programming. The "first look" is an opportunity for participants to be instrumental in shaping the community and the direction of its efforts. The founding circle has the distinct role of curating the experience for future iterations to include additional speakers and lifestyle experiences.
The NAPA Valley
A sense of place is integral to fostering connection and intent. With its serene countryside and deep culture of hospitality, the Napa Valley is a prime setting to play host.
Located just north of the innovation hubs of San Francisco and the Silicon Valley in Northern California, the Napa Valley has a rich history of service to its local community, as well as engagement of stakeholders from diverse regions of the globe.
Most critical, though, is the Valley’s successful curation of thoughtful and transformative gatherings. The local culture recognizes the importance of breaking bread and sharing meaningful dialogue to enhance defining moments. Abound expands upon the existing structure and engages the community in even more substantive work.
The inaugural summit is curated to a half day of on-site engagement. Future gatherings will include a comprehensive portfolio of programming and experiences. For a detailed list of session types and accompanying events, please click below.
Programming for the first year is aligned under the theme A Time of Transition: Conversations of Impact. The speaker line-up and full series of events will be announced shortly.
