The concept behind CO-STORM is about how much more we’re able to see (brainstorm) for each other, than we see for ourselves. There’s a creative back and forth energy in getting outside your own head. Fresh eyes see our blind spots and filters. They also mirror back to us what’s really going on. A CO-STORMER’S insight can clarify what steps to take next, highlight your strengths, and make you see what should happen naturally. It can solve a problem in your field with an outsider’s perspective. During this session, each participant will have time for an introduction and a chance to discuss their most pressing pain point, project or idea in a safe and empowering environment. Your CO-STORM partners will brainstorm with you on solutions and positive changes.

This session includes an incredible group of mentors, ready to give back by sharing their experience and expertise.
