Description

LAB Talks | Know Your Value

Moderated by Christine Scherping with Bruno Bornsztein (Influencer Kit), Bjork Ostrom (Pinch of Yum), Emily Hirsch (Fit Foodie Finds) and Meghan Yancy Moderated by Jerrod Sumner with Kristofer Bowman of Upstate MN and Chip Addington of Addington Company

A Free Monthly Event Curated By LAB for Business In Partnership With Hennepin Made + Parallel Café

Join us for LAB Talks - Retail Storytelling for the Modern Shopper. Be surrounded by like-minded people in the community to talk passion, connect and make it happen while fueled by coffee from Parallel Cafe. There is no one better to lead this dynamic conversation than Jerrod Sumner of Brandtabulous - expert brand storyteller, editor and stylist, as well as the Creative Director of Rose & Loon with experience in curating local makers for West Elm. With his genuine appreciation for the maker, coupled with understanding the value of the story beyond the label and logo, Jerrod is changing how we experience retail in the Twin Cities.

Kristofer Bowman of UpState MN and Show and Tell, with his brick and mortar storefronts that focus on connecting people while sharing the stories of artists, designers and makers – and Chip Addington of Addington Company, whose love of nature and the outdoors fueled his passion for hand crafting the most beautiful high-quality gear and bags, make for a compelling exchange with Jerrod as they share perspective on the changing retail landscape as an editor, a maker and a shopkeeper. Step away from your daily to-do list, grab a coffee and be inspired. You won’t regret it.
