I have always left the Think and Drink events with new insights, ideas and questions and ponder these still. The value of a thoughtful exchange of ideas with people who I might not have had the opportunity to meet or encounter in my normal social circle has expanded my knowledge and often made me aware of a prejudice I had not recognized in myself. The way the sessions are structured allows for presentation of alternative ideas and views in a safe environment. Many times I’ve read a book or sought additional research on a topic after the event. I’ve met and gained new friends due to these sessions. My worldview has been expanded and this keeps me coming back.
