Life in Five Senses.  Do you find yourself so immersed in your devices, to do lists, Zoom calls and overscheduled calendar that you often lose sight of relishing the moment?  You’re not alone but the good news is -- help is on the way.  At this event, we welcome Gretchen Rubin, a five-time New York Times bestselling author on happiness and human nature, to share her revelatory journey exploring the five senses as a path to a happier, more mindful life.  During this fireside chat interview, Gretchen will explore cutting-edge science, philosophy, and literature as well as her own efforts to practice the profound power of tuning in to the physical world of seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching.  With probing questions posed by author and workplace expert Debbie Epstein Henry, Gretchen will inspire the audience with thoughtful insights and hands-on suggestions about how to heighten our senses and use our powers of perception to live fuller, richer lives.

Gretchen Rubin is one of today’s most influential observers of happiness and human nature.  She’s the author of five New York Times bestselling books and she hosts an award-winning podcast, Happier with Gretchen Rubin, where she explores practical solutions for living a happier life.  Gretchen has been interviewed by Oprah, walked arm-in-arm with the Dalai Lama, and been an answer on Jeopardy!  She started her career in law and realized she wanted to be a writer while clerking for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.  Raised in Kansas City, Gretchen lives in New York City with her husband and two daughters.

    For more than 20 years, I've run the DEH Speaker Series (formerly under the names Flex-Time Lawyers and Law & Reorder).  The DEH Speaker Series is a quarterly programming series where I interview and moderate conversations with New York Times best-selling authors, TED speakers and thought leaders.  The quarterly events draw hundreds to more than 1,000 participants from companies, law firms and non-profits worldwide.  I've been fortunate to have more than 35 prominent law firms host these events over the years.  The program topics vary and generally fall into three categories:  careers/workplaces, women/diversity and law.  Here’s a 2-minute highlight reel of my interview of Valerie Jarrett to give you a sense of how the DEH Speaker Series works.

    We are excited to offer three ways to join the DEH Speaker Series:

    • Access to the Next 4 Consecutive Events by Unlimited Online Webcast for 1 Year
    • Access to the Next 4 Consecutive Events by Unlimited Online Webcast for 1 Year PLUS  Access to 20 Former Archived Events by Unlimited Online Access for 1 Year
    • Access to 20 Former Archived Events by Unlimited Online Access for 1 Year

    The DEH Speaker Series is currently being offered exclusively online and membership options do not include in-person participation.  If it makes sense to return to in-person programming, we will maintain the same rate for existing members and continue to offer the events by webcast.  With the new exclusive online offerings, all members are able to access the webcast events individually from any location.  Many organizations purchase corporate memberships to supplement their internal professional development, women’s initiatives and/or diversity programming.  To learn about our Archived Access membership where we offer access to 20 of our former events, click here.

    Here’s a corporate invoice and an individual invoice that outlines the new offerings and payment terms.  Click here to purchase one of the membership offerings online.  You can also pay by check as outlined in the invoices.
