ask. dinner in San Francisco 2015

It is a simple idea:

What if everything started with a question? What if a moderator helped everyone share their best stories?

There’s something magical about turning off your phone, bringing together great people and having a moderator who brings out personal stories over dinner. It’s an intense night of vulnerabilities, laughter, and new friendships.

Ben Flajnik, Andrew Warner and Amanda Bradford.
Shane Mac, Julien Smith and Sashka Rothchild.
Catherine Spence, Julien Smith and Ian Hunter.
Nir and Julie Eyal, Chase Jarvis and David Marquet.
Galen Buckwalter and Steve Huffman.

Thanks everyone for coming.
