the ultimate leadership &

retreat development masterclass

Leadership is in our psyche, we are not here by accident and while there are small moments of doubt we step into who we are with pride, joy, ease, and grace - some might even say effortlessly.  If you have landed here then this is probably for you (and has been designed for fearless women like you). 

You are the dream chasers and inspired believers.

You are the ones already running retreats and want to step them up a notch, or you are wanting to add them into what you offer.

You know you are a leaders and want to be in that space - even if you are kicking and screaming your way there.

 

Retreats are journeys that can take you around the globe (or close to home or even online), and have you sharing your message with those around you, and, just maybe, have you rubbing shoulders with a celebrity or two. A beautiful leadership style melds into this and has you shining in a room without you even knowing it.

Business and every part of that journey is a huge adventure that takes time to manifest and grow, but when developed it will have you glowing with pride of what you have achieved. Here at The Retreat Specialists and the Ultimate Girls Week Away we work with over 26 years of experience and we want your retreats and business to attract clients with ease and grace - and of course, make you a ton of money for your hard work.

This combination of Retreats and Leadership will step you into the place you are meant to be and will become an integral part of who you are.

I am in a privileged position (that I have worked hard to get to) of having networks of amazing businesses, retreat experts, and women in leadership around me and I want to be able to share their passion and advice for you.

I was 16 when I realised I held space for people, but it has not been until the last few years that I came to understand what an amazing gift this truly is.

The retreat Learning Component

You are the ones that have something amazing to share with the universe, you raise your voices so others can have the courage to use theirs. You are all about being alive and soaking in the energy of what you are teaching, you are the heroine adventurers who see self-love as the primary outcome in life. An inspired believer who knows that anything is possible when you believe in inspiration. You are the change-makers of this time and,  you are doing what you are here to do through conversations and connections every moment of your day. ​

Whether you’re in business, education, a creator, healer, or performer ‐ as a visionary in this modern world. I have no doubt that you are multi‐tasking, supporting your family, friends, career, relationships… perhaps even creating a movement or being of service in other ways ~ because let’s face it, you care. This is why, you are why, Retreat School has been floating around the ethos, waiting for the perfect time to come in, and during this time of isolation and distancing it said that this is the right time, so that you are all ready when retreats will come to the forefront of peoples minds.

Retreat School is a framework that will change the way you organise and run your retreats - it doesn't matter if you have been running them for years, or this is something new for you - it is the way for Retreatpreneurs to simplify everything so you get it right,  this is the place where you can learn all that you need to know to run your own profitable and transformational retreat.

the leadership component

Every month for 8 months we get to talk leadership - what that is, what it means, what sort of leader are you, how do you hold space, and what that looks like,

During our monthly leadership calls (that are recorded if you can't make them)
