We specialize in intimate executive retreats.
We have identified that the best learning takes place in the right environment – when there is the opportunity to focus and the space for honest dialogue. An executive retreat enables this. These retreats provide the perfect opportunity to strategically think, plan, and align. The formal and informal times during an executive retreat cannot be underestimated to produce real results.
We can design the full learning journey for a retreat or can contribute to a particular area as required. Our tailored interventions can include team facilitation, business facilitation, diagnostics and assessments, strategic planning and goal setting, leadership development, team building and coaching, all specifically focused on executive level and above.
Examples of offsite retreats we have designed and delivered to demonstrate the value of these executive retreats:
The Australian executive team took a few days away to decide how to brand a new car to bring to the market, ensuring the approach was connected to the company vision, mission, and values. The end result was a 177% growth in sales over the next year. With another client from the automobile industry – a prestige luxury brand – the country CEO and executive team went offsite in China to look at long term strategic planning, ensuring they were aligning the team for a future-ready approach for the market.
Financial banks, and stock traders based in Singapore often travel to a small island off Singapore for retreats to ensure that their sales, traders and analyst teams could collaborate better and remove silos. We have also been engaged in the wealth management to run retreats for their exclusive top clientele, particularly helping family companies to resolve the tensions they experience as they transition to the younger generation.
We have run offsite execute retreats for the executive teams of a number of award-winning hotels & luxury resorts to ensure alignment within the often multicultural diverse teams, to identify how to maintain brand integrity, and plan for the future.
YPO / WPO Forum Retreats
We have worked with a number of small forum groups of CEOs for the ‘Young President’s Organisation / World Presidents Organisation’, helping them to take time out to look at pressing issues that need to be discussed in confidence.
Among a number of retreats in this sector, the CEO, Founder, and Shareholders of one company spent the weekend in a private villa, to discuss strategic thinking, creative ideas, and innovation – which resulted in fast-tracking the company sale process. End result was the company being sold to a global conglomerate.
The country CEO and executive team of a major insurance company used an offsite to rework their vision mission values and focus on strategic planning for the next 5 years.
We have run these special events in a number of unique locations including: Resort islands such as Bali, Phuket, Bintan & Langkawi; Exotic remote destinations such as Marrakesh, Bhutan & Nepal; Desert settings such as: Dubai & Oman; and have even participated in get-aways in big cities such as Bangkok, Singapore, San Francisco, Prague, Sydney, London, Vevey, Madrid & Mexico City.
