Join a group of Denters for a deep dive and interactive experience that will broaden your perspective and help build the resources you need to practice better leadership. This workshop is for anyone who makes regular decisions that materially affect the performance of their organization. As always with Dent, you’ll forge relationships with other creative and entrepreneurial people that will last a lifetime, and you’ll get hands-on input from both your peers and world-class experts in some fascinating fields of work.


We’ll bring together a set of leading experts in unique and different fields of work. Each guide will lead an interactive workshop designed to help improve your understanding of their field of work, inspire new and useful perspectives, and prepare you for more effective leadership.

Here’s who we’ve got guiding us in Telluride so far:

Emily Hickey
Co-Founder, Instant AdCopy

Marc Nager
Managing Director, Telluride Venture Accelerator
Former CEO of Startup Weekend
[ Effective Meetings, Buy-In, and Decision Making ]

What you can expect

The Dent community is filled with inspiring and motivated people who are looking to share great experiences together and accomplish big things. Your time in Telluride will be personable, actionable, and social.

The schedule will provide great opportunities to work on specific challenges you face in your work or personal growth, as well as time to reflect on the learning you gain.

You’ll get hands-on time in a small workshop setting with world-leading experts who can blend their past experience, experiential teaching, and thorough knowledge of theory into a valuable new set of tools for your work.

Limited to 30 people at most, this experience in Telluride will include time spent outside the meeting room. While we are there, much of the world-class ski mountain will already be open, and we’ll have the opportunity to spend some time on the slopes. The town of Telluride is a beautiful mountain retreat in and of itself, and we’ll enjoy a pub crawl, great meals at fantastic restaurants, and a series of evening games and activities that provide the opportunity for you to forge deep and meaningful relationships with your peers.

What is Dent?

Dent creates and supports a community of entrepreneurs, executives, and creatives who are driven to “put a dent in the universe.” We began as an annual conference but quickly developed into a strong community of people who call themselves “Denters.” The name Dent comes from the Steve Jobs quote: “we’re here to put a dent in the universe, why else even be here?”

The annual Dent conference focuses on drawing actionable insights from the stories of others and building an environment where peers from diverse backgrounds and fields of expertise are encouraged to build meaningful relationships through conversation and shared experience. In addition to an annual conference, now hosted in Yountville, CA, Dent works to engage with Denters throughout the year and provide opportunities for them to connect with each other and forge the kinds of connections that lead to powerful collaborations.
