2018 Recap

Stay connected via our newsletter or social media accounts.



Our vision for The Atelier arose from an unofficial and unintentional brainstorming session in early summer 2017. Friends for years, we’d always admired one another’s business successes, in the corporate world and as entrepreneurs, as well as our love for adventure and travel. While catching up over lunch that day, we launched onto the topic of personal development and how immensely important it is to the person as a whole – both in business and in life.

While we both reflected on some good experiences attending business conferences in the past, we realized there wasn’t anything out there that encompassed all of our main touch points – something that was experiential, content heavy and energetic. And something very important was missing: INSPIRATION.

That was our a-ha moment. We recognized there was a clear gap in the market, and we had the excitement and experience to create something special exceptional for our fellow entrepreneurs and business leaders. That fortuitous first conversation evolved into inspired action: energized coffee dates, exciting working sessions over lunch and strategy sessions in wine country. Our collective background of event planning experience, marketing skills and business operations intersected to proudly create The Atelier.
