Marissa will be one of our Case Study panelists on Saturday afternoon. In the Case Study session, a presenter poses a specific business problem to a panel of “expert” respondents or seasoned socially responsible entrepreneurs. Panelists and retreat participants alike offer advice based on their experience and expertise.
Marissa is a cofounder of Green Spaces, the go-to coworking space for social innovators, with locations in NYC and Denver. She recently launched Flockd to scale the magic of collaborative workspaces, powering productivity and connectivity for innovation. As a 10-plus year publicist and marketeer, she frequently speaks and teaches entrepreneurs PR for startups via Investor’s Circle, NYC FastTrac, Startup Leadership, Skillshare and Parsons the NEW School for Design. She also blogs for Forbes, covering entrepreneurs, change makers and innovation.
Jeffrey researches, interviews, and works with creative innovators, scientists, and social psychologists to discover how creatives flourish in times of challenge and change. He mentors authors and thought leaders to make a difference with their ideas and art.
He'll lead a workshop and presentation on Sunday to help participants identify their impact on a patch of the planet, their wonder zone of possibility, the uncertainties and fears and challenges they will face, breaking down those challenges, and identifying the skills, talents, and resources to face those challenges.
