Brené Brown

Researcher & Best-Selling Author

Why Brené is Inbound

INBOUND attendees loved Brené in 2015 (seriously, we still get emails raving about her session), so we decided it's high time to bring her back. At INBOUND 2017, Brené will be talking about her new book, Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone. Brené will talk about how true belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are – it requires us to be who we are.
