Where in-house leaders connect and share ideas.

A space for leadership collaboration and building meaningful relationships.

Leading in-house design, experience, and operations teams today is more challenging than ever. That's why we created InsideOut, a community custom-built for senior leaders. Small format roundtables provide space to connect, collaborate and generate new ways to move business forward, faster.

Past topics

What InsideOut leaders are saying.

“I found the discussion incredibly valuable and it garnered seemingly simple solutions to persistent challenges. The attendees were all open, honest, and fun to spend a few hours with.”

“This is hands down the best format for networking that I have been a part of. The small groups, the “projects”, the presentations, the way that the events are so well organized, the Aquent team that is so involved and clearly excited…”

“I like the camaraderie in the group sessions. There is no judgment, just sharing. And since this group is being formed organically, it's being targeted to issues we want to address vs. some preset agenda.”

Why you should join us.

We build the community, you make it awesome.
