BEAT dinner series is bimonthly dinner with access to sensational food and stimulating conversation. BEAT believes that every conversation counts and works to create inviting contexts that foster open dialogue. Each BEAT dinner is hosted at a remarkable Toronto restaurant. A highlight of this event is that a different guest of honour will be invited to each dinner.
