We all suffer from a profound case of “Idea Surplus Disorder” at Filament — and we think that’s a good thing. Here are some of those ideas we’d like to share with you.



“We had an amazing brainstorming session with Filament!”


We hosted Alive Magazine's leadership at Filament for a retreat in late 2017 and they wrote about the experience.  Here's just a sample:

Inspiration. Connection. Even in the most creative industries, these are not words many people associate with their weekly team meeting or an annual staff-training retreat. But Filament has higher ambitions than what happens in the average rented hotel ballroom. The company was born, in part, because Homann himself had sat through one too many boring conferences in his previous career as a lawyer. “I found myself in a lot of rooms full of people sitting shoulder to shoulder, all facing the same direction, receiving information but not really saying anything to one another,” Homann said. “Or, they’d be at a networking event, drinking together, but not really thinking together. Over time, I found myself being pulled towards helping people talk.”

His solution for igniting those conversations wasn’t creating a fantastic meeting venue, designing a brand-new method of dialogue or developing a team of facilitators to become experts at coaxing the best ideas out of a room.

Homann’s solution was to do all three. 

Let us know how we can help your team rethink your business.  We'd love to help!
