Every month 5 amazing community professionals come together over a casual 5 course dinner for conversation, connection, and camaraderie.
Dinner5 is a monthly dinner series hosted by Community5 CEO, Jake McKee, designed as a small group, non-salesy evening where the focus is community nerdery and amazing food.
The core of the Dinner5 experience is a unique 5 course meal, prepared by a chef who designs the menu just for us. Food is a universal language, a way to create connection amongst the people sitting around the table. And when we connect over 5 tasty courses, it creates a story that can be told the next day.
Only 5 people are invited each month, and Jake works to ensure a well balanced, non-competitive group is assembled. Community5 and our sponsors covers the cost of the night. All we ask is that you pass the word to other community nerds who might want to participate in future events.

WHY JUST 5 ATTENDEES?
For a small group, 5 is a perfect number of attendees. It’s big enough to have unique and varied opinions brought into the conversations, but not so big that anyone can “hide” in the conversations.
Jeff Bezos famously loves small teams and the Two Pizza Rule: “The two-pizza rule says that no team can be larger than five to seven people.” There’s an intimacy and an power that comes from these smaller groups, but also enough variety of opinion to drive innovative and interesting outcomes.
We rely on our fantastic sponsors to help make Dinner5 happen! Full and Partial sponsorships are available for each event. We can even work with you to plan a custom Dinner5 event in your city. For more information, please visit our Sponsors page.
