Andrea Driessen helps people live and die with more intention and impact. And has dedicated her career to helping companies, nonprofits, and teams become more capable, communicative, and connected. So, it’s no wonder that as a hospice volunteer, Andrea understands the profound power of open and caring communication between those who are dying and their loved ones, along with the importance of recognition, appreciation, and productivity at work.

Through her interactions with people who are dying—and those who are very much alive—she developed the Gracenotes workshop experience. And has witnessed the life-changing effects this straightforward exercise has on anyone. Especially those on the front lines of hospice and palliative care.

Andrea TED Talk about Gracenotes is making impacts around the world.

Her Gracenotes clients include LeadingAge, Trauma Intervention Programs, Amazon, and The Boeing Company.
