Description


Sharing our knowledge, stories and experience is the best way to support and inspire others

When you are running a business, finding the time to pause and reflect can be difficult because of your daily demands and schedule. This is often when we start to feel overwhelmed or uninspired because we don’t have the mental and physical space to really focus. Taking yourself out of your normal environment and hitting the reset button in new surroundings with different people has a positive impact on your wellbeing and therefore the wellbeing of your business because you are giving yourself the time to recharge. Creating this space to breathe allows you to see your business and yourself from a different perspective.

The INSPIRE Business Retreat is for female founders and women on the entrepreneurial journey seeking a transformational experience where business and personal development come together.

On May 27th 2019 our INSPIRE journey begins at our luxury retreat house in Barcelona. You will find an intimate and supportive space where you can organically connect with like-minded women and enjoy powerful conversations and workshops and talks designed to help you with different aspects of your business.
A typical INSPIRE retreat day might start with a mindfulness session or beach walk to help you to get focused before we start our morning group workshop and planning session. Then we sit down to a healthy and delicious brunch cooked by a local chef to fuel us for our afternoon activities. After brunch we head into our second workshop of the day and you also have free time to go out and explore the sights of the city. In the evening we might head to a rooftop yoga session to relax us after a day of brainstorming or listen to a talk from a local member of the Barcelona business community.

Barcelona

Barcelona is a classic destination and one of our favourite cities. We have chosen Barcelona because it has an amazing ambience, bustling start up community, a great wellbeing scene and much more to discover.

The Retreat House

We will be staying in a beautifully designed house in the heart of the city which is spacious, relaxing and has all the luxurious touches you would expect. We have chosen the space as it is the perfect environment for us to get inspired.

Accommodation is based on twin occupancy, however if you prefer to have you own room please let us know at the time of booking. Bathrooms in the house are shared.

Should you need space to work outside of the house, we can recommend local spots to co-work and also arrange passes for you depending on your needs.
