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.
“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.“–
