Andrea Driessen

How much do you matter to your organization? Knowing the answer to this question can change the way you work and live. After all, when we know our talents matter, when we’re valued and appreciated for our humanness, we take bigger risks. We take on greater challenges. We bring our full selves to work. Our culture becomes one of greater belonging. Teams are more cohesive. And we contribute more time and energy to mission-critical initiatives. 

Andrea Driessen created the Gracenotes keynote and workshop series for organizations committed to helping everyone find their deeper purpose in their work. For teams craving more cohesion. For managers needing an easy to-use tool that shows employees how their talents matter. And for HR leaders looking to boost retention efforts. As more and more companies navigate a hybrid virtual workforce, it is more critical than ever for people to feel greater connection, belonging and collaboration.

Andrea has dedicated her career to helping companies, nonprofits, and teams become more communicative, effective, and capable. An event-industry veteran, she’s spent her entire career in the trenches of business meetings—understanding each group’s unique goals and delivering impactful and engaging solutions. Andrea has curated programs for hundreds of meeting planners who wanted to create new experiences to invigorate their audiences to take action.

And as a hospice volunteer with Providence of Seattle, she understands the profound power of open and caring communication between those who are dying and their loved ones, along with the importance of recognition, reward, appreciation, and productivity in the business world.

​Through her interactions with people who are dying—and those who are very much alive—she has developed the powerful and actionable Gracenotes program that is changing people’s lives.
