Exploring themes of dis-connection, community,
and human potential in the 21st Century.

In service to a more joyful, sustainable
and equitable society.

Al Jeffery is a community-designer, facilitator, author,
keynote speaker and leadership virtuoso.

Growing up with a strong sense of curiosity, and a burning desire for exploration, Al has always questioned ‘normal.’ For as far back as he can remember, he has always felt the world pulling us further away from ourselves, yet asking for more from us. This led Al to beginning his entrepreneurial journey at just 12 years old, in pursuit of change.

Al Jeffery is an internationally renowned community-designer, group-facilitator, author and leadership expert in service to our hyperconnected-yet-deeply-fragmented world. 


As Co-Founder and Director at The Base Between (formerly Base Commons), Al explores the themes of disconnection prevalent today, designs and facilitates spaces for re-connection in communities, leadership and the lives of individuals.


With his creative career starting at just 12 years old, Al has been listed in Australia’s Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30 twice in a row and nominated for Young Australian of the Year.


Al’s forthcoming book, Modern Tribe, forms the philosophical and scientific basis for his work. In it he explores the personal and social ‘entanglements’ of our time and offers refreshed approaches to restore connection.

Recent musings from Al’s blog

  • #17: Christine Owenell — Leader as Listener, Regeneration & Alchemising Chaos
    Both with a vision for a world where the words ‘love,’ ’soul,’ ‘money,’ ‘profit’ and ‘business’ are spoken often in the same sentence in leadership conversations, we explore the power of ‘listening as midwifery,’ the courage to abandon outcomes, humility in leading amidst the unknown and familiarising ourselves with play as a way of courting the muse and building a relationship to disorder and unknowing.
  • #16: Joshua Ackman — Money, Meaning & Funding the Emerging Future
    We explore what an integrated approach to investing that includes the ‘irrational,’ emotional, and relational might look like. We also explore what opens up to us when we see money as energy flow, the fact that we are all ‘investors,’ and how aligning our values and our decisions might support the weaving of the world our hearts know is possible.
  • #15: Day Schildkret —Beauty, Impermanence & Queering Our Cultural Imagination
    Diving into some of the threads of our cultural imagination keeping us at odds with our own wholeness, Day and I explore themes of impermanence, queering masculinity and non-binary ways of being in lived relationality with uncertainty and mystery. In a time exposing rigid patterns of being-together, we dance with the wisdom of queerness in illuminating what it might mean to navigate change and liminality with openness and curiousity.

“Al was incredible! He brings such a presence to the room – one that engages the audience, while simultaneously providing a sense of peacefulness. The genuine connection Al creates with his audience is mesmerizing to be a part of. I would highly recommend him to any event seeking to engage and be inspired with fresh ideas and practical steps.“
