Startup Founder and Executive Producer in Petaluma, California
I love to build teams and create experiences that strengthen relationships. I am the co-founder and executive producer of NewCo, the event and media company celebrating 'business on a mission'. I've been active in the media business for more than 24 years, working most closely with John Battelle, serial media entrepreneur to conceive, develop and execute a long string of successful event and media businesses, like The Shift Forum, focused on tech and policy.
After a variety of positions for Wired Magazine in the early nineties, I helped launch The Industry Standard magazine and conference division, serving as the Chief of Staff from inception through close of company. After The Standard, I created a conference development consultancy, Stacey Foreman Productions, which has since 2001 produced dozens of multi-year event platforms for a variety of industries. Additionally, I started a conference division for Federated Media Publishing featuring the flagship Conversational Marketing Summit. For the last 16 years, I have also co-produced Lazard Freres' Annual Foursquare executive conference. My latest side projects include the innovative Signal series and Boing Boing's custom Ingenuity events.
Specialties and sweet spots: building and managing teams, crafting disruptive business plans, new business and product launches, conference development and management, brand, event and product marketing, event production and execution, project management, execution.
Personal: Two busy sons (14 and 18), three needy cats and tooooo much to do everyday...JUST the way I like it. Wanna go for a hike?
