Sharing almost every major decision, from business strategy to staffing to product development, can be alternately wonderful and maddening! Since its inception, Red Hook Studios (makers of 'Darkest Dungeon') has operated with two Co-Presidents. Co-running a company in this way has unique benefits, challenges, and risks. Because of an unwavering commitment to (often brutal) honesty, Tyler Sigman and Chris Bourassa believe that together they have been able to achieve more than they could have alone. They will share crucial lessons learned throughout the development of 'Darkest Dungeon', illustrated through real examples.

Takeaway

The session will provide tangible and practical tips for working partnerships, including making better strategic decisions and working through inevitable conflicts that arise from disagreements and ego-driven concerns.
