About the Atelier Collective
The vision for The Atelier arose from a brainstorming session in 2017 between two friends, Angela Osborne and Taryn Herritt. Realizing there weren’t any premium business events encompassing all of the main touch-points – something that was experiential, content-heavy, and energetic. Leveraging their backgrounds in event planning, marketing, and business operations, they founded The Atelier Collective. The Atelier offers highly curated business workshops, lifestyle events, and online education for the tenacious entrepreneur and ambitious career woman.
