How to Create Trust & Intimacy Via Zoom
Featuring Christina Weber, founder of DEEPEN
Do you miss big bear hugs from friends?
How about attending events in real life or dating if you’re single?
As a “super-connector” and community-builder, I wonder how the pandemic will impact our ability to build deep, meaningful relationships because there are no great substitutes for in-person interaction.
Thankfully, Christina Weber from DEEPEN shared some “best practices” with me around creating trust and intimacy via Zoom, that you can use today in a personal or professional fashion to improve the quality of your network and relationships.
Christina Weber is a serial entrepreneur with a background in sales, marketing, event production and community building — and a great career story of gaining 10+ years of NYC corporate experience before trusting her gut when she felt it was time to go.
After starting two companies, Gamelace (intimate apparel) and Feminine Weapon (an event series celebrating the power of women while raising money for charity), Christina found herself desiring a romantic relationship.
This intention lead Christina to a pivot in focus and the realization of a new purpose — to help people (including herself) attract, sustain, and achieve healthy, meaningful romantic relationships. This led Christina to create DEEPEN, filling the void in the dating space between the apps and private matchmakers, allowing for people to meet in real life, do things they love to do, and step outside of their comfort zone.
