The Wilderness Tonic, Monday 12th October 2020

I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees – Henry David Thoreau

Are you feeling a little overwhelmed by running your own creative business?  Are you passionate about what you do, full of ideas, but frustrated that your to do list is getting ever longer and you just can’t seem to prioritise what to focus on?

Well the Wilderness Tonic might just hit the spot for you. It’s a day retreat I’m running with marketing expert Karen Webber.

Where is it?
The Gathering is located at the very top of Edale Valley – the last farm before the open moorland of Kinder Scout. Once through the farm gate you are in a haven of calm and privacy.

Who Is The Day For?
Ideally it’s for creative business owners and people with creative jobs. It’s for those of you who are looking for some time out to reinvigorate yourself and gain a fresh perspective from like minded creatives.

We will be accepting a maximum of 12 attendees to keep the day relaxed and cosy.

What Does The Day Consist Of? 
We’ve basically planned a day that we’d love to attend. We want to bring people together in a gorgeous setting so that we can share our triumphs and our challenges, and get other people’s take on our big-picture plans. The aim is for you to leave feeling relaxed but buzzing with new ideas, focused plans, and the clarity and energy to achieve your goals.

There will be a number of activities to support this during the day including:

  • Brainstorming to move your business forward
  • A realistic and inspiring goal setting exercise
  • Investigating the why of your business
  • A walk in the Edale hills

The day starts at 10am and ends at 6pm
