About this event

About this event

Between Us (formerly Dinner Confidential) is a global community transforming how we communicate so we embrace hard conversations and sensitive topics with openness. Come and practice Open and Active Listening as we discuss the topics that shape our lives, yet we rarely really talk about!

Learn more about here.


Wednesday, from 6.30pm - 8.00 pm (CET time)

We know that “vulnerability” is required to take courageous action and to build deep connection with others.

Yet, being genuinely vulnerable is hard for many of us. Let’s have a courageous conversation about what prevents us from being vulnerable? And what could happen in our lives and in our world if we embraced more vulnerability.

More about us and the format of our gatherings...

During our intimate dinners (7-10 max), our experienced hosts create a welcoming container for people to come together and talk with vulnerability and honesty about our most personal topics and emotions (e.g. self-confidence, fear, control).

After each dinner, we identify the key learnings and insights from the night and share them with our community so they, too, can benefit from the experience. We never share personal stories, those are strictly confidential.

We have hosted dinners in over 35 cities around the world, including New York, Miami, Toronto, Nairobi, Caracas, Rome and Perth. New cities coming soon.


Do attendees know each other?

Sometimes. But usually, they don’t and that’s part of the magic. Coming into a place full of strangers to open up and share some of your most personal experiences is very powerful. No one there knows your history, you are a blank canvas. People won’t judge you or give you advice (unless you specifically ask for it). We are there to listen, share and connect.

Do I need to prepare for the Dinner?

A little bit! Your host will send all the details of the night via email, including a few questions for you to reflect upon prior the Dinner. All Dinners start with an intimate set of introductions, where each guest shares her stories and is deeply heard.

Is this open to all ages and backgrounds?

Yes. Actually, the more variety we have in ages, backgrounds, and perspectives the most interesting the conversation. Everyone is welcome.

How do you keep confidentiality?

We include a vow of confidentiality in our invitation, and reiterate the importance of confidentiality at the start of each dinner. We create a strong container of trust and integrity and expect the same of all of our participants.

What’s your cancellation policy?

We put a lot of love and effort into these dinners so please do your best to avoid a last minute cancellation. If you need to cancel, try to find a replacement.

Organizer Alessandra Patti & FindYourWay Coaching

Organizer of Between us Zurich: Vulnerability

Hi everonye! I'm Alessandra, Italian by origins and adopted by Switzerland since the year 2009! I am an events organizer at heart, and I love many things: food, restaurants, travelling, reading, writing and dancing. This last is truly my "therapeutical" self-care technique.

Since the year 2017 I have created my own start-up, named FindYourWay Coaching. I dedicate myself to two main audiences:

- For companies, I act as a mental wellbeing strategist. From A to Z, no matter where you are in your employees' mental health assistance program. I work at the intersection of communication and mental wellbeing. I believe the power of speaking up influences our mental health too much: and this is where I am an advocate for non-violent communication and mental health ambassadors

- For individuals, I create communication trainings on the topic of self-esteem, assertiveness and authentic communication.

The type of events that I host are based either on mental wellbeing topics (stress, time, boundaries, self-care) but also on authentic communication.

I hold the events mostly online, but check-out a few of my in person ones too!

I'm not on the most popular social media, but me and my company we are indeed on Linkedin! Here I am: Linkedin Profile
