About The Eventbusiness owners writing retreat laos 2020 pool book

As with all of my writing retreats, this retreat offers business owners the precious timeexpertise and accountability they seek to indulge their creativity and take action on growing their business through content sharing.

By more effectively leveraging your expertise through the written word, you’ll be seen as a leader in your field, and therefore your opinion will be sought and your client list will grow. The good news is, you don’t have to be a master of the English language to do it!

This retreat is for busy business owners and entrepreneurs who simply need to get away from their normal routine, the meetings, the school pickups, the hamster wheel of social media engagement, the 1:1 coaching, and actually GET SOME CONTENT CREATED!  It’s particularly for those who think they ‘can’t write’.

Spend a week out of your business to grow your business.

This retreat is for you if:

  • Your business offers a service (coaching, consulting, etc)
  • You’ve been operating your business for more than 2 years
  • You’ve been doing well from referrals but you’re ready to broaden your reach
  • You’re aware that publishing valuable content can help grow your business BUT you’re overwhelmed so you don’t prioritise it
  • You’re ready to be seen as a thought leader in your field and know you’ll need a substantial body of content to achieve this (book, program, keynote) BUT you have no idea where to start.

What can I expect from this retreat?

Having the language to express yourself clearly and confidently through marketing is a challenge for many. But it’s a challenge that must be overcome if you want your business to soar.  Consistent voice and messaging is crucial to building community and a platform from which to share value.

On retreat you’ll learn to harness the power of storytelling and develop a confidence in your content you never knew possible.
It’s not as hard as you might think but it does take know-how, a mindset shift, and some good old fashioned motivation.  Away from the distractions of family, clients and commitments, you’ll be amazed at how quickly your creativity kicks in and your output increases.
