Alain Gauthier, BASOL co-founder
reflects on
nearly two decades of organizational learning

Alain Gauthier, a co-founder and steward of Bay Area SoL, is moving to Portland, OR, primarily to become a more present and active grandfather to Sylvie who is 7 years old. 

We have invited him to reflect with us on what we have learned over the years that would be most helpful in turning a city into a vibrant, conscious, learning community, in these times of profound civic, social, and economic challenges. Alain will share with us his own reflections and experiences on developing evolutionary co-leadership across organizations and sectors, both here and abroad, and lead us into a dialogue where you will able to bring your own aspirations, experiences, questions, and reflections.

Alain’s most recent book was published as an Ebook on Amazon.com under the title Actualizing Evolutionary Co-leadership – Evolving a Creative and Responsible Society.” 

We hope you can join us for this special session as we wish Alain all the best in Portland.

Important note: We are meeting at 343 Sansome St., Suite 500, not at our usual Chronicle building location.
