Erica is a workplace strategist who has worked for the past 20 years with some of the most iconic brands in the world as a consultant, speaker, writer and professional dot-connector. She is the founder of the Spaghetti Project, a platform devoted to sharing the science and impact of human connections with global brands, community groups, teams and individuals. Inspired by a 2015 Cornell study showing that firemen who eat together are better at their jobs (they save more lives!), and as a hats-off to the firemen and their go-to firehouse meal, she calls her work the Spaghetti Project. Because left to our own devices, we’re just not connecting.
