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
We keep participants hush-hush, but our network ranges from trade associations to global think tanks, plus senior executives and global policy experts, as well as leaders from high-growth entrepreneurial businesses and some of the world's largest multinational corporations.
