Brigadoon is hosting a workshop and discussion on developing press contacts, speaking with the media, and creating content that is newsworthy.

Led by Brigadoon Founder and communications specialist Marc A. Ross, the 90-minute session will provide the foundation for greater media engagement to help advance your business objectives.

Why attend?

✔️ This will be an intimate event limited to only 12 attendees and provides open and frank discussions with all participants.

✔️ Brigadoon gatherings are all powerpoint free and governed by Chatham House rules to ensure maximum conversations.

✔️ There are no lanyards or apps involved – by the end of the gathering you’ll be on first-name terms with subject matter experts from numerous industries including finance, government, business, media, architecture, design, retail, and hospitality.

✔️ Enjoy a discussion with fellow attendees on topics shaping commerce and culture in an informal and relaxed setting. Alongside the conversations and discussions, there is joyful, relaxed hospitality.

✔️ Regardless of your profession or skill set, you will be exposed to people who will inspire you to think about your work, life and home.

✔️ Brigadoon gatherings are transformational, not transactional.
