Elevate, presented by Brand Storytelling, will returned this July. This time, to the iconic Sundance Mountain Resort. Robert Redford purchased the property in 1969 with a vision to create a mountain community committed to the balance of art and nature. 

Today, Sundance offers an atmosphere steeped in cultural heritage where filmmakers and nature lovers have been gathering for decades.

 

This unique setting provided an intimate gathering for a select group of brands and their storytelling partners.

With support from Story + Strategy, we have been hard at work conducting brand research to determine the most salient topics for exploration at this year's Summer retreat for brand storytellers and their partners.

 

The input received from one-to-one interviews with brands has been invaluable, and we're grateful to all who have participated in the process. As a result of your input, we've selected eight topics for this year's Elevate workshops that are a direct reflection of the needs and interests expressed by our community. Here's a closer look at the workshops we hosted for Elevate 2022:

Program Advisors

Shawn Brain and Marc Battaglia of Story + Strategy, worked directly with participants to identify the most salient topics, and determine workshops meant specifically for this group.
