BRING one CHALLENGE

What matters the most is that you want to create positive change

As a senior executive leader that is accountable for growth, relevancy and pioneering change in your organization you have challenges. You will bring one challenge to solve for that you and your organization are facing.

This challenge can be anything. Examples include creating an innovation culture shift, navigating risk & politics, a specific marketing, product, or service challenge. It doesn't matter what it is or how clearly defined it is.

UNPACK ELEVATE DEFINE

You & your challenge will get well deserved attention & thoughtfulness

We will be taking you on a thoughtful journey by keeping your personal experience top of mind. Together we will unpack, elevate, and inspire as we move forward a challenge that you & your organization are facing.

During this all-in experience, you will take in inspiring talks, contemplate privately, collaborate with your break out tribe, and connect with your peers in unstructured and structured time. Please see FAQ for more details.

SUPPORT that STICKS

Take with you a meaningful community & an experience that creates impact

 You will leave this gathering informed with fresh stories to tell, friendships to relish, and actionable paths forward for your clearly defined challenge. 

You will also return to your organization with clear, no nonsense structures along with a diverse support system to make the real impact and change that you are seeking —  this includes a one hour followup support call with one of the diverse Thought Leaders from the WeOverMe collective.

A CITY & SPACE TO INSPIRE

 

Los Angeles is an evolving hotbed of innovation and collaboration well beyond entertainment. It’s also an ideal launchpad for a California holiday, paired with your Potlatch experience.

When it comes to space, we have a saying: “Boring gray spaces lead to boring gray ideas.” Below is one of our gathering locations, a coveted creative & collaborative space near LA's Arts District. More to come soon.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

HOW DO I GET INTO THE NEXT POTLATCH? 

You will be placed onto the waiting list for future Potlatch gatherings throughout the year by adding using this wait list link. You then will be informed of next steps and deadlines for registration in a timely manner.  

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY SENIOR EXECUTIVES? 

This event has been customized for leaders who value being able to relate & collaborate with Peers that are facing the same challenges and accountabilities in their organizations & personal life. We fully recognize accountabilities for growth, relevancy and pioneering change are different from organization to organization. Please do not hesitate to email us with questions or set up a phone call

WHAT ABOUT PRIVACY & DISCLoSURE NEEDS? 

Our priority is to make sure all of your needs are met. Knowing each of your challenges have different levels of needs for non disclosure and privacy within the Potlatch experiences, we will be working directly with you and all participants to create a safe and secure place for sharing.

 

CAN I BRING SOMEONE WITH ME THAT REPORTS to ME? 

Yes! Our purpose is to fuel you with impact. If you have purchased a ticket as a Senior Executive and would like another leader with you or someone that reports into you they are eligible for a ticket as well.

 

CAN I DIP IN AND OUT OR COME FOR PART OF THE GATHERING? 

The answer is no.  While we may have some speakers and experience makers that can only show up for part of the time, participants have an all in or all out commitment. This is to ensure that you are surrounded with other like minded individuals that recognize the value of focus and the purpose of the gathering. We will schedule plenty of breaks and personal time for you along your journey.

 

what if i need to be in contact with my office or LOVED ONES? 

When people are focused and present the best stuff happens and we all know that being reachable for communication outside the experience is sometimes important. We will be asking cell phones to be put on silent and we trust everyone to keep them out of the experience until during our breaks and free time. That being said we want you to feel at ease. Additionally, as back up for urgent needs, you can provide The Potlatch production team's contact number to your office, loved ones, and anyone else you feel is necessary. If you have any questions or needs for accommodations please email us and we will be happy to collaborate with you.

 

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? 

This is a casual event, not business or business casual, casual. We want you to wear what you feel most comfortable in. This is a safe place to just be you while helping us to set a tone that will put us all at ease and in the right state of mind.
