where entrepreneurs + thought leaders gather to discuss emerging issues shaping commerce + culture.

 

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 discuss emerging issues shaping commerce and culture.

Brigadoon is an opt-in, word of mouth community of leaders looking to learn from others to create a network of leaders committed to public service, solving problems, 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.
