‘Priya Parker has created both an art and a science to gathering in ways that can bring joy and fulfilment to any meeting’ Deepak Chopra
‘Hosts of all kinds, this is a must-read!’ Chris Anderson, creator of TED
Being deprived of gathering has revealed just how important it is to us; to connect with others, collaborate, share ideas and create moving, life-affirming experiences.
At a time when coming together is more crucial than ever, Priya Parker sets forth a human-centered approach to gathering that can help everyone create meaningful, memorable experiences in their lives, large and small, for work and for play.
Drawing on her wide expertise as a facilitator of high-powered gatherings around the world, Parker takes us inside events of all kinds to show what works, what doesn’t, and why. She investigates a wide array of gatherings – a court hearing, a flash-mob party, an Arab-Israeli summer camp – and explains how simple changes can invigorate any group experience. The result is a book full of exciting ideas of real-world applications and one that will forever alter the way you look at your next business meeting, dinner party and garden barbecue.
