Co-Founder, CEO and Chief Community Architect, Daybreaker

Community Building 101Despite all our “friends”, “followers” and “users”, we are feeling more isolated than ever—especially since the dawn of the COVID-19 crisis. Radha Agrawal calls this “community confusion,” and believes that leaders need to cultivate their personal communities beyond business. When leaders find support, they create connections–both personal and within their teams—which studies show are our key to happiness, fulfillment, and success. In this presentation, Radha shares the outcome of 18 months dedicated to synthesizing her key methods for community building, peeling back the curtain on exactly what she and her team did (and continues to do) at Daybreaker so that anyone interested in creating their own community could have a blueprint for how to do it.
Radha is a community force. She is the co-Founder, CEO and Chief Community Architect of Daybreaker , the early morning dance and wellness move-ment that currently holds events in 25 cities and over a dozen college campuses around the world with a community of almost half a million people. She is a successful entrepreneur (Co-Founder THINX , LiveItUp ), author, globe trotting speaker, DJ, inventor, and investor. Her new book BELONG answers the questions, "how the heck do I find my people?" and "How do I create large and meaningful communities in the real world?". She spent 18 months synthesizing her key methods for community building, peeling back the curtain on exactly what she and her team did (and continues to do) at Daybreaker so that anyone interested in creating their own community could have a blueprint for how to do it.
She was named by MTV as “one of 8 women who will change the world.” Radha lives in Brooklyn NY with her love Eli (a baby on the way) and her twin sister Miki – and lots of family and friends within a few blocks. You can most often find her tinkering with new social experiments, community and experience design projects, speaking around the world, or on the dance floor at Daybreaker in New York City (if she’s not dancing at sunrise in another part of the world.)
