A place that is idyllic, unaffected by time, or remote from reality.
Established in 2013:
Brigadoon is the global network where executives and entrepreneurs 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.
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 - ever
Program activities that foster deeper connections
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 your 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
Journalists + Columnists
Senior Executives + CEOs
