When did you last get the time to ‘unplug’ and take a step back from your everyday work? This is what we did when we invited 16 of our valued clients and partners for a leadership retreat to the stunning Loch Lomond setting of Ardoch: Wren and Greyhound Unplugged! The idea was simple – to provide the right blend of space and structure, then allow people to fill the weekend with their own content. This let us find time to generate new insights into some of the most thorny leadership issues facing us today:
Here are just a few of the things people said about the event [you can read all the feedback, and notes on our learning, by downloading the Unplugged PDF from the resources page]:
I’ve been lucky to attend various inspiring and energising events over the years. But W&G Unplugged was in a league of its own! Wonderful people, stunning setting, oodles of inspiration and knowledge. Thank you thank you thank you.
I feel energised and buzzing with new thoughts/refreshed thoughts. What an amazing group of people; not least our thoughtful and original hosts.
I feel very nurtured by the experience. Thank you seems too humble a thing to say, but it was genuinely lovely. Cultural change in action!
A really inspirational weekend in a fantastic setting with lots of wonderful people.
It’s ages since I spent time that was so rich, so engaging and so inspiring in so many ways. Thank you Graeme and Jenny for being incredibly generous, creative and generally wonderful! I suspect in years’ time we’ll still be saying ‘that started at Ardoch’.
I really enjoyed meeting everyone. A really extraordinary group of folk…really smart. I would definitely come again. I learnt a whole lot about the ‘third sector’ and the kind of culture that exists and ethos, and about some of the approaches and out of the box thinking. Thanks so much for thinking of doing this and being open to what it could be.
Facilitation was low key and excellent and my conventional group-related panic evaporated! Thank you again for the kind gift of the time away to think and focus.
