About the event

Join us for our community event, Jovial Connect & Create, on Thursday, May 2 @ 10am! Let’s learn basic book-binding together followed by facilitated, small group networking. You’ll leave our event with a hand-sewn, soft cover book (made by you!) filled with learnings from your new connections and conversations.

Event Details:

10:00am - 10:15am: Check-in, select materials

10:15am - 11:00am: Welcome & let's book-bind!

11:00am - 12:00pm: Small group networking

12:00pm - 12:30pm: Stick around for open networking, or head out if you need to!

An integral part of our Jovial vision is community, whether it is within the workplace or beyond. Outside of our work with enterprises to create programs to build up their communication and connection (and results 💸, cause we know that matters), we hope to create the spaces and opportunities for people to connect in ways they never thought possible.

Our perspective has always been this:


It doesn’t matter what your background is, what school you went to, what jobs / titles you’ve had (or haven’t had), whether you’re a serial entrepreneur (or if you hear someone say “serial” and you think about cereal 😂)…there is something to be learned from everyone. What is most rewarding is discovering the personal stories behind the human as opposed to the crisp professional resume.


Art was my favorite class as a child. While I’ve enjoyed working in the software product world, it is satisfying to make something that you can physically grasp and share with others. To this day, I take my son to Michaels in search of new projects. When I’m feeling uninspired, crafting is a way to use a different part of my brain and then return to work with a renewed perspective.

Our Jovial event combines these two ideas to create an experience unlike your typical networking event. We facilitate conversations to remove the pressure and social anxiety that may come with these types of events, and simply bring together like-minded individuals to foster connection & creativity. This isn’t a place where you need to pitch yourself and the work you do (but if you want to share something work-related you’re excited about or need help with, you’ll have the opportunity to do so!).

Ideas can come from anywhere (and oftentimes spark from the unlikeliest of places), we hope you leave this event feeling energized and inspired for your next project!

Limited spots available, so sign up soon! Registration will close by end of day Tuesday, April 30, 2024 to allow us sufficient time to plan breakout groups and supplies.
