Episode 267: Lawrence Adjah on building community in the age of the coronavirus

April 23, 2020

Lawrence Adjah is an alum of Harvard, McKinsey, Stanford. He is a community builder, business advisor, and pastor.

Several years ago, Lawrence organized a family-style dinner for some acquaintances at a restaurant in NYC. Rule: no phones at the table, no discussing work. Treat tablemates like family.

Participants wanted to attend another dinner and bring people they knew. A movement was born.

Now, the Family Dinner Foundation that Lawrence founded has 50,000 participants.

Last year, Lawrence and his board began exploring how to build community beyond the dinner table, and that focus has now taken center-stage in the age of the coronavirus.
