Dent:Blend Richmond 2020
“A fantastic experience!”
“Dent was everything I had hoped for and more. I felt inspired!”
Dent:Blend is a 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 2020 edition on Friday, October 23rd at 1pm.
Get tickets below before they’re gone! Lunch, dinner, activities, and tastings are all included in the ticket.
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.
Our speakers come from all over the country and right here in the Mid-Atlantic providing ground-breaking approaches. From climate change to life-changing nonprofits or startup successes to lesson-sharing failures, Blend pulls no punches in providing an opportunity to learn and create community with fascinating people with an energy to do amazing things.
“Dent: Blend was a fabulously well-curated experience. I got to meet new people who turned me on to ideas and projects I’d never heard of, try out new technologies, interact with art in a brand new way, and sample some of the best food and drink in Richmond. Also, it was incredibly entertaining. A perfect day.”

- Laura Thomas, Effective to Great Education
Social Emotional Learning through mindfulness
