“An eclectic crew of generally brilliant human beings”
#1 Conference Worth Your Time and Money
Gender Avenger Hall of Fame
Dent hosts a series of award-winning conferences and retreats to help push our members outside of their comfort zones, expand their thinking, and help them reinvent themselves.
In 2012, Dent co-founders Steve Broback and Jason Preston were fascinated by the question: why are some people and some teams able to do extraordinary things?
In order to better understand what goes into denting the universe, they hosted the Dent Conference for the first time in Sun Valley, ID, in 2013, gathering one hundred people who are doing extraordinary things in different fields.
The conference is a four-day, experience-driven event that brings amazing speakers and sessions together with activities, workshops, dinners, and tours.
The Dent:Explore retreats are designed to explore both a topic and a unique location. These five-day experiences weave together interactive workshops, lectures, hikes, outdoor adventure, food, and wine into a powerful package.
These more intimate events are limited to 35 people each, and provide a large amount of “structured, unstructured” time specially designed to help Denters connect with the other amazing people present in ways that aren’t possible at a larger event.
