Capture the Power of the Group

There is power in numbers. Join our group discussion. What business trends are we seeing? What is working, and where are we stuck? What has happened since we last met, and how can we help each other?

Our “Vibe:”

The Business Retreat is an informal, small group experience. Casual dress and casual vibe. Get to know other participants and develop deeper business relationships.  Explore new perspectives, best practices and breakthrough ideas.

Our Agenda:

  • Morning: Kick back with beverages, pastries and  introductions.  Forget your usual “elevator speech.” We have time. Tell us a bit about your business, and a bit about yourself.
  • Then settle in with our guest expert, and open discussion. Ask questions, share ideas.
  • Lunch: We’ll break for a light lunch and recharge for the afternoon!
  • Afternoon: Your choice –  Stay in the common area and kick back, bounce ideas, get inspired. Set accountability goals and ask for support. Or adjourn to a private room to work on a critical project that never seems to get done. Or take a walk in the woods. Pick your options!
