The Red Table is 90-minute creative journey developing unprecedented solutions and big ideas for business and society. A blend of meaningful dialogue and human connection, The Red Table is a breakthrough vehicle for creative conversations that transform the status quo.
The minds behind The Red Table—We are a team of Boomers and Millennials, each one of us a successful business person and entrepreneur, all of us lecturers and graduates from the University of Southern California (USC) Annenberg School of Communications and Journalism.
Through this process, members of the table connect to others by discussing shared dreams, aspirations, and goals. The search for human commonality emerges from their disparate threads of thinking.
Let it fly, no holds barred. From chaos comes real creativity. We facilitate the group through a dynamic session of conflict management and exploration.
In the final act, we reach the creative action moment for a new big idea. Together, we create the catalyst for change, evolving an idea towards resolution and possibility.

"The Red Table lead us through the constructs and very quickly all parties were sharing insights and obstacles to working together. The entire room was engaged in the process. And when we broke into groups, we were able to realize 10-12 meaningful actions that could increase ROI for both sides of the table."

"I loved the energy of the program. Wexler and his colleagues kept us moving, thinking, focused--challenging us with fresh perspective on what the group was bubbling up. Fast, fun, thought-provoking and productive. We are already implementing ideas that came out of our workshop. A definite value-add exercise for any organization."

"The Red Table provided a unique collaborative opportunity for our staff and corporate partners to identify ways to support not only our mission but our corporate partners’ goals as well. The team-interaction of tension, commonality and creativity led to actual fundraising ideas that motivated both. The resulting bonus was the development of a closer relationship with some of our greatest supporters. Kudos to Gary and team!"
