Future Fit Leading: Nature as Inspirer, Mentor and Transformer
One Day Immersion Retreats

with  leading author GILES HUTCHINS and JENNY ANDERSSON

09.30am to 4.30pm at specific days throughout 2017 in Stancombe Valley
Near Stroud in the Cotswolds

New Autumn Programme Dates:  September 7th and October 5th​

In collaboration with author and thought leader Giles Hutchins, I invite you to a one day immersion to explore and embody Future Fit Leadership – leadership inspired by nature, nature’s living systems and our shared humanity - in the beautiful Cotswold valley of Stancombe.

We will experience nature explorations, campfire conversations, private reflections, guided meditations and somatic exercises, peer-to-peer sharing, and group work, all held in the stunning Stancombe Valley, feeding your mind, opening your heart and soothing your soul, while helping you discover how your leadership can transform in the months ahead.

This is a special time and space for you to work with a small group of like-minded professionals who also intuit that more of the same is no longer enough and who are ready for transformative change. The safe and sacred space of Stancombe will provide you with the canvass, the inspiration, and the permission to open yourself up to deep learning, fresh thinking and new perspectives.

You will return refreshed, renewed and revitalised for the path ahead.

From Previous Participants

‘What I didn’t expect when I signed-up to attend a one-day nature immersion retreat with Giles was the opening up of a whole new world. The experience opened my eyes to the energy and beauty of this amazing place. During the final campfire session I felt a deep connection to the group and something much bigger than all of us. If you are struggling in the cage and need to take a step outside, I would highly recommend this programme.’ – Michaela Wright, Head of Sustainability, HSBC

"The nature immersion with Giles was just what I needed! Giles beautifully crafted a deeply nurturing atmosphere where the group could connect with self, others and nature.  I was able to deeply reflect on my life, my purpose and the changes I needed to make in my life, to enhance my effectiveness as a leader with my work in a business school"  Sharon Olivier, Programme Director, Ashridge Business School
