Outpost Redwood Forum 3: Partnerships & Community – Connecting With Others to Move Ahead
For our 2018 flagship event, Pineapple produced and hosted the Redwood Forum. As the business track for the event, Pineapple led an open discussion with industry insiders who shed light on business growth, market risks, and brand partnerships. They contributed anecdotal tales of past experience and broader insights from their current positions. As a forum, the panel and Outpost attendees joined in an interactive conversation to discuss key themes and related insights.
Open and engaging, the forums were held in redwood grove in the middle of Camp Navarro, with the panelist and attendees at the same level. Instead of leading conversation from the front, the conversation was interactive, and started from topics contributed by the attendees. In the end, attendees talked as much as panelists, answering questions and contributing their experience to the conversation.
Does your current business have potential for critical mass to make your vision a success or is it in its best interest to find like minded companies to align yourself with, leverage markets and build a new addition to your customer base. Partnering with other brands can make this possible. Is partnering for you or should you continue to go it alone and make it all happen yourself?
This forum discussed the opportunities for brands as the come of age, grow market share, and break into new markets. The attendees/speakers discussed the option to go it alone and build a brand as an island or partner with other like minded or distinct but synergistic brands to attain their market goals and business objectives.
