THOUGHT-LEADERSHIP EVENTS & SOCIALS

Vancouver’s leading event series in the People & Culture ecosystem.

The ReFrame Group hosts monthly thought-leadership events and socials in Vancouver and various locations across the Lower Mainland.

The purpose of these events is to give back to the People & Culture eco-system and the many other professionals who attend. We aim to inspire individuals to return to their respective workplaces feeling empowered and motivated to create change. These sessions also provide an opportunity for local thought-leaders to give back to the business community and help others learn from their journey.

The ReFrame Group events & socials provide a unique space where great people can connect on a regular basis. We look forward to seeing you at our next one!
