Dent:Blend Richmond 2019

September 20, 2019 All day

Dent:Blend is a fantastic one-day, community powered Dent experience that seeks to bring the experience and vision of the annual Dent conference to new communities across the country. Denter Dean Browell of Feedback will once again be our host for the 2019 edition.

At Dent:Blend we seek to create a unique experience to explore our future and our past through the lens of innovative leadership and creativity while simultaneously immersing ourselves in our beautiful surroundings and exploring all that Richmond has to offer. At its heart, Dent:Blend Richmond is an annual unpretentious event about vision with smart, thoughtful folks trying to change the world from the stage and the seats.

This year’s Blend speakers come from all over the country and from industries providing ground-breaking approaches to connecting Idaho teens to their futures, convincing world leaders of an ozone hole in the 80’s, and providing for children and adults with special needs. New activities and a new brewery dinner location are sure to make this the best Dent:Blend ever!
