The Portland Ten
The Portland Ten is the most powerful networking event for social changemakers you’ll attend this year.
Got an invite? Make sure to RSVP today to reserve your spot—this dinner for Portland’s top social changemakers is not to be missed!
What is The Portland Ten?
Each quarter, Team Prichard convenes our community’s top ten social changemakers for dinner, drinks and smart conversation. Attendees forge new and powerful alliances for their brand or organization, engage in intimate conversation with new supporters and share individual changemaker stories. It’s like the small group networking experience you’ve always hoped for but could never find!
Past attendees tell us they’ve launched new partnerships that helped grow their businesses, quit their jobs after feeling inspired and motivated to do more, and been able to bolster their financial bottom line as a direct result of their participation in the dinner!
Why we do it
Prichard is committed to using our superpowers for good. In this case, we designed The Portland Ten to help make Portland an even better place by connecting local changemakers in the hope that they will build strong, lasting relationships as a result of their experience at the event.
What’s the catch?
There isn’t one! No sales pitch, no cost, no public relations people.. okay, we’ll be there but only to listen and learn from the current class of social changemakers!
Because we like a good mystery, we don’t announce any of the details of the event until 48 hours prior, including location. Each event takes place in or around Portland’s City Center in a location convenient for bikers, walkers and drivers.
Invitees are considered some of the leading social changemakers in Portland. They are chosen based on nominations from the community and Prichard staff. We strive to make each event a meaningful and personal experience for every guest. As such, guests are carefully chosen with commonality and personality in mind.
