  • Why A Retreat?

    What does it mean to go on retreat? Is this vacation with a little session sprinkle on top? Actually, no. Retreat is purposeful pause. It’s stepping outside of the grind to recharge and return with greater capacity, resiliency, inspiration, and solutions for your what’s next.

  • Who will be in the room?

    Senior level female learning leaders in continuing education events and/or training (Director, VP, CLO or equivalent). For modest size professional associations, that may be the Executive Director.

  • When is the retreat?

    Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, new dates are forthcoming

  • Where will the retreat be held?

    We'll be staying at a beautiful property on Lake Pepin Bluffs in western Wisconsin. Transfers between the airport and the venue are provided with registration.

  • What topics will be covered?

    Learning at the retreat will fall into two tracks. Leadership Development and Business of Learning (including entrepreneurial innovation and CE business models). An agenda will be provided upon registration

  • What is included in the retreat?

    This all inclusive experience includes lovely accommodations, daily yoga, all meals carefully crafted by our personal chef, master classes, airport transfers, and exclusive surprises. All you need to do is book your ticket and we'll take care of the rest!

Say Yes!

Leaders are vulnerable to stress, and depleted, burned out leaders operating in survival mode cannot give their organization their best. Retreat offers a reset, getting clear about our future focus alongside practices that inspire us to lead with intention within our high stakes high stress roles. This is how we build capacity and level up our resilience.
