Pace and Purpose

Chamber of Beautiful Business, London

The Kindred

Co-hosted by Sofia Natal and Sophie Devonshire.


How we meet is important. In business, as in life.   

We live in a superfast world where (safe) places for connection and meaning -  superslow by nature - are hard to access. What does pace and purpose mean in today's times and how do we incorporate the role of personal and organizational purpose in business and in our lives?

Together with speakers from business, philosophy, and technology, we invited you to to pause think, discover, explore and connect together – in a beautiful place.
