What will we explore:

  • What is the best contribution from Art of Hosting into the “operating systems” of next-stage organizations?
  • How does the four-fold practice of the Art of Hosting unfold the development of the practitioners and the practice?
  • What is the next stage of Art of Hosting as a consequence?
  • Be welcome to join with your own question!!
