Think & Link: May 18th, 2:00 pm Pacific / 4:00 Central (Live, Broadcast and In-Person)

The world of designed experiences has nothing without great food, the chefs who create and the tools they use. We have an inspired pairing of three, our first trifecta, for this month’s Think & Link. We’ll be talking about a new experience designed by our client and friends at Cooks of Crocus Hill in neighborly partnership with Gavin Kaysen.

We have the acclaimed chef Gavin Kaysen with an iconic duo here in Minneapolis Marie Dwyer and Karl Benson, the stewards of Cooks of Crocus Hill. If you haven’t heard of Gavin, we’d like to ask if you’ve named the rock you’ve been hiding under? And, while Marie and Karl are a bit more “behind the scenes” compared to their internationally recognized chef friend, they are two of the most amazing design driven entrepreneurs in our community.

Come be a part of the conversation we’ve designed for you.
