Leadership Retreat


Leadership Retreat

Join me, for a fusion of personal and professional development, growth and rejuvenation like no other.

This is an unsurpassed contemporary leadership program to help expand you and your team’s perspective.

I will set the scene by offering a new paradigm of thinking through my world-class keynote that leaves audiences on their feet, time-and-again.

Unconventional ‘workshops’ will allow us to go deeper…

And then, let’s spend time together with money-can’t-buy activities – like a live-fire pistol shoot, under instruction by special ops veterans, fire-side chats and dining at award-winning venues to help make memories that last a lifetime.

I welcome you to Salt Beach, Northern NSW, where the soft, golden sands meet luminescent sub-tropical waters, and the lush rainforest is set to the breathtaking volcanic backdrop of Mt Warning.

This is the place I call home and I look forward to a beachside coffee shop chat and to show you around ‘my backyard’.
