About Us

Convene is a skill building and resilience community for human service agencies founded and curated by Josh Dye.

While training at human service agencies and conferences across the country for the past 7 years, Josh noticed a few problems plaguing the sector.

  1. High rates of stress, burnout and staff turnover.
  2. Not enough support, camaraderie and community for professionals doing such emotionally draining work.
  3. Budgets that severely limit access to high-quality training for staff. Many agencies can only afford to train a small portion of their people, leaving many without the learning opportunities they need to be successful and feel supported by their employers.

Convene was created to solve those problems.

First, when an agency joins, it includes everyone on their team for a flat, affordable fee ($999/year). No more tough choices about who gets to attend a needed training. Second, everyone gets support and camaraderie through the interactive forums and small group coaching sessions. Third, the skill-building webinars and in-person training opportunities each month will keep human service professionals sharp, motivated and growing.

About Josh & the Convene Team
Professional and personal leadership and growth takes courage. This is where thought-provoking presentations and training by Josh Dye and Convene, LLC make the difference. Since 2010, attendees in over 250 of his presentations have learned how to harness the courage to lead, create, have tough conversations, maximize precious time, and leverage moments of failure for meaningful growth.

What separates Josh apart from other speakers and trainers is how he combines practical, actionable tips with inspiration and motivation. He doesn’t just tell you what to do, he charts the course for how to do it. Josh authentically speaks from his own experiences, benefiting audiences with lessons from both his successes and gut-wrenching failures. Regarding education, Josh earned a Master’s Degree in Public & Nonprofit Administration from Metropolitan State University.

To offer a wide range of perspectives, Convene will bring in human services professionals from across the country to deliver webinars, share tips and best practices in small group coaching sessions, and provide subject matter expertise.
