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 from 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 workshops and multi-day retreats, Brigadoon organizes several powerpoint free, and conversation focused events in distinctive settings that involve all participants and foster deeper connections.

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
