How to Make your Retreat Memorable AND Valuable

[ Blackboard fridays Ep. 126 ]
by Jacob Aldridge Published

Committing to a company Retreat - for your whole business or even just your leadership team - is a significant investment of time and money. Most SMEs are too scared to make that investment - and if you're not sure what you can do to ensure a return on that investment then you're right to be worried.

Most companies that try an offsite, multi-day Retreat ... find themselves returning year after year. They've realised the enormous potential value in taking the team away from the office (and the phones, and some of the emails) to focus on Strategy and Growth rather than another day working 'in' the business.

So what do they know that you're not sure about? To answer that question, about how to make your Retreat both memorable and valuable, we welcome back John Knight. In his capacity as Managing Director of businessDEPOT, John is responsible for our Annual Retreat which this year involved more than a dozen team members across Accounting, Advisory, Legal, Marketing, People & Culture, and Agency Broking.

How do you bring those minds together? What are the exercises you can run to get the most value? And is this something that any business - even yours - could implement? Watch this week's episode here.

Blackboard Fridays has now released more than 100 episodes. Your feedback continues to be excellent, so we want to know - how else can we help your business by going 'Beyond the Blackboard'? Click below to take the survey.
