    Executive Retreats

    Our step by step approach will guide you through the process of building a cohesive team.

    First, we will meet with you to uncover your business needs and challenges. Together, we will pinpoint the measurable results that you want to achieve. To ensure that our approach is a perfect fit for your team, we'll find out about your corporate culture, group dynamics and the interaction and learning styles of each team member. (Participant Profile and Mini Learning Styles Inventories are included. We can go a step further and add an interaction styles inventory or 360 degree feedback to the process.)

    Then, we will customize one of our existing executive retreats or team building sessions (or design a brand new session) to address your business challenges.

    To get "buy in" from all team members, we will conduct a team briefing (or provide you with a presentation to brief your team) about the relevance of the executive retreats or team building to YOUR business realities.

    Activities for Executive Retreats


    Executive Retreats

    Business related activities may include visits to luxury brands, interviews with executives from your industry in a different country, factory tours, designing, marketing and running pop-up events, and benchmarking exercises.

    Our executive retreats aren't just "play days" for the executive team. However, to relax team members and break down barriers, we often build activities and outdoor team challenges into executive retreats.

    Depending on your budget, at some locations, we can incorporate energizers such as desert safaris, camel rides, dune buggy races, snow shoeing, dog sledding, outdoor barbeque challenges (rugged or gourmet), golf, polo clinics, polo games (spectator), horse riding, abseiling, hockey, and luxury car or motorcycle adventures into your executive retreat.

    Our executive retreats usually have a gala dinner or a night of entertainment but we are not an entertainment company. We will source an option that is a good fit for you and save you the legwork
