2024 Leadership Summit

Your Organization is a Forest- Make it Thrive


Is your organization a forest? Is it growing, thriving, and set up to last generations?

In this talk, Vikas and Priya Narula, will discuss the incredible parallels between forests and organizations and how to know if yours is thriving or not (beyond just financials).

Combining technology, real-time experiential exercises, with cutting-edge research in the field of leadership, team development, and forest ecosystems, Vikas and Priya take their audiences on a journey into the forest of the workplace and beyond.

Leave this session feeling empowered, renewed, and illuminated. Come away with clear, actionable steps to make your life and organization richer and more vibrant.

Grow the forest – in your life, work, and neighborhood.

Vikas Narula ~ entrepreneur, speaker, facilitator, blogger and author
