2018 IEA Global Conference

Keynote Speaker: Peter Block

Author of  Community: The Structure of Belonging and other books.

The conference keynote speaker will be Peter Block, the author of Community: The Structure of Belonging and other books.

Peter Block is an author, consultant and citizen of Cincinnati, Ohio. His work is about empowerment, stewardship, chosen accountability, and the reconciliation of community.

Peter is the author of several best selling books. In 2008 Community: The Structure of Belonging was published, and The Abundant Community: Awakening the Power of Families and Neighbhoods, co-authored with John McKnight, came out in May 2010.

The books are about ways to create workplaces and communities that work for all. They offer an alternative to the patriarchal beliefs that dominate our culture. His work is to bring change into the world through consent and connectedness rather than through mandate and force.

Endnote Speaker: TJ Dawe

Our Endnote Speaker is TJ Dawe, whose fresh take on use of the Enneagram through wordplay will continue to breathe new life into the varied expressions of the Enneagram.

The Pre-Conference Day will involve panels discussing bridges that have and can be built in three areas: between the Enneagram and business; in the global Enneagram community; and to diverse populations.
