TD Bank Morning Star Series featuring Christine Porath

Oct 28, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am


The Board of Trade, together with TD Bank, has been creating unique opportunities for our members to hear from noteworthy speakers, authors, and presenters for the past 15 years through our Morning Star Speaker Series.

This October, we welcome author Christine Porath to share more about her book Mastering Community: The Surprising Ways Coming Together Moves Us from Surviving to Thriving

In her powerful new book, Christine  explores how the rise of technology and modern workplace practices have fractured our communications yet left us always “on” digitally. Through now common practices like hot-desking and remote work, our human interactions have decreased, and so too have our happiness levels. This lack of a “human factor” is sparking a crisis in mental health that will have repercussions for years to come, leaving people lonelier and making the bottom line suffer, too. What Christine has discovered in her research is that leaders, organizations, and managers of all stripes may recognize there is a cost, but have no idea as to implement the cure: Community.

With her signature depth and grasp of research across myriad industries including business, healthcare, hospitality, and sports, Christine extrapolates from the statistics on the experiences of hundreds of thousands of people across six continents to show us the potential for change.

Join us at the Archer Hotel Tysons and learn actionable steps you should implement today to create your own thriving community.


This event is expected to have 75-100 members and regional stakeholders, and will be open to the media.
