On Friday, April 8th, we host a series of Jeffersonian Dinners.
A Jeffersonian Dinner operates on a simple — but critical — shift in standard dinner party dynamics — everyone talks about one topic to the entire table, rather than the person sitting next to you.
The goal of a Jeffersonian Dinner is to listen, learn and inspire each other through meaningful dialogue on a single important issue.
Our hope is that our Jeffersonian Dinners will bond together our new cause-centered community and give us a deeper networking opportunity.
At Food + Enterprise, we think Jeffersonian Dinners are the best way to enjoy a meal and take full advantage of the backgrounds and wisdom of the attendees.
The key to a successful Jeffersonian Dinner is providing an engaging topic of conversation that can maintain everyone’s interest. Mentors will send carefully curated conversation topics to guests in advance and, during the dinner, they will lightly moderate to keep the dialogue going strong.
Our Jeffersonian Dinner includes a specially prepared meal with locally-sourced ingredients (The details of this part of the experience will be revealed as we get closer to the event).
Jeffersonian Dinners require an additional fee beyond Summit Registration. Get your Jeffersonian Dinner Ticket Here.
