Retreats offer an inspiring launchpad to focus and create impact through your work and expertise, while also building brand loyalty, growing your business, and increasing your profits – who doesn’t want that? 

Retreat planner and keynote speaker, Elaine Rodriguez will show you how to plan, fill, and execute your own retreats – no matter what stage of your career you’re in and who your clientele is. Within a year, you can be running your retreat in Bali, St. Louis, or any other inspiring location around the world. 

Join us on October 6 to learn the ins and outs of planning retreats that will draw more people to your business and leave your attendees begging for more of what you have to offer!

Key takeaways:

  • How to pick the ideal location and create the perfect itinerary to maximize the power and lasting effect of your retreat theme.
  • Marketing techniques that will fill your retreat and draw new clients to your business.
  • Post-retreat services you can offer that will keep clients engaged and have you profiting from your retreat long after it’s over.
