make better connections.

Brigadoon Definition:

A place that is idyllic, unaffected by time, or remote from reality.

Established in 2013:

Brigadoon is the global network where entrepreneurs and thought leaders gather to make better connections and to discuss emerging issues shaping commerce and culture.

Brigadoon is an opt-in, word of mouth community of leaders looking to learn other subject matter experts to create a global network committed to public service, solving problems, engaging in conversation, and building businesses.

From salon dinners to excursions and multi-day retreats, Brigadoon organizes a number of powerpoint free, conversation focused events in distinctive settings that involve all participants and foster deeper connections.

Brigadoon also hosts educational workshops and provides advisory services helping global entrepreneurs and thought leaders make better communications.

The Brigadoon Secret:

  • Bring a unique, global network of subject matter experts together in distinctive settings that intellectually challenges participants

  • Ensure maximum conversations and discussions

  • Events are more retreat and less conference

  • Gatherings and conversations are under Chatham House rules

  • No powerpoints, no lanyards, no apps - ever

  • Program activities that foster deeper connections

  • Subject matter experts working on emerging issues shaping commerce and culture

How Brigadoon Works:

  • Produce a diverse, global network of experts from different sectors, countries, and backgrounds

  • Create a platform to release ideas and exchange best practices using offline and online techniques

  • Participants seek knowledge from others who have unique perspectives not frequently seen in daily life

  • Create a multi-decade foundation of leaders committed to public service, solving problems, and building businesses

  • Construct gatherings that are more transformational and not transactional

  • Celebrate expertise and knowledge
