Retreat

transform the way you do business

What would your business look like if nothing were standing in your way? The Brand Stylist retreat is an all-inclusive, luxurious escape for creative professionals on the beautiful Spanish island of Majorca.

Four game-changing days that will throw open the doors to possibility and utterly transform the way you do business.

UPDATE: we are now 70%  80% booked. Single occupancy rooms are now sold out but there are still a couple of spots left if you’d like to share one of our gorgeously appointed rooms. No need to book with a friend (unless you’d like to), we’ll match you up with a fellow student!

unlock your potential

We all know that taking the time to reflect, refine our vision, refocus our offering and refresh our spirits is an essential part of running a successful business. Actually making that happen can be easier said than done. With so much vying for our time and attention, it’s often the first thing we neglect. To the detriment of ourselves and our businesses.

There’s something utterly transformative about prioritising that process. More than a series of workshops, the magic begins the moment you make the decision to invest in yourself. Shifting to a new, and exquisite, environment, throws the doors of possibility wide open.

Being fully immersed in the process for four days allows you to work in a new way. Without being dragged into the mundane necessities of everyday life you’re free to make powerful connections, with ideas and people, that can transform the way you do business.

‘I came home brimming full of new-found knowledge, clarity and determination.
In fact I came home feeling totally reinvigorated and full of creative drive. And I really needed that!’ SILKIE LLOYD, THE FORGE

the experience

Expect total immersion in those elements that will really wow your clients and unlock the true potential within your business. Workshop sessions begin at 10 and close at 5 with beautiful food and smoothies to sustain us. Pre-breakfast yoga is available each day should you want to stretch your body before putting your mind to work.

Each day we will also set aside time for Open Forum Sessions. Your opportunity to discuss and resolve live issues from your businesses.

You can expect the usual flair, fabulous food, focus and fun that you get with any Brand Stylist offering. This, coupled with time, and the incredible setting, will enable you to recharge and reinvigorate yourself, and your business.

What you'll gain

Amplify your vision

What would your business look like if nothing were standing in your way? A series of empowering and inspirational experiences to get to the heart of what’s truly possible.

Captivate your clients

Discover how to tell your story, demonstrate your value and share the magic in your business.

Up your skillset

Realising the true potential within your business starts with investing in you. Workshops on colour psychology and mood boarding will up your skillset and elevate your offering.

Raise your game

We’ll explore the practical steps you can take to win more of the right sort of work, whether that’s with a better social strategy, a blow-them-away media kit or a compelling proposal.

The Schedule

You’ll receive a full itinerary along with a pre-retreat workbook a few weeks before we fly, but to give you a flavour of what’s in store, here’s the plan.

MON 22ND MAY: FLY AND FLOP

A little time to flop before we put you to work on focus is an essential luxury to make that mental and physical shift and get ready for the magic to begin. Check in any time from 2pm and spend your time as you choose.

Chill by the pool, explore Cal Reiet’s beautiful gardens or take a stroll into Santanyi village. Indulge in a beauty treatment*, splash in the waves at the beach or just take some time to wind down, clear your head and prepare for an intensive three days of workshops.

Fiona will be poolside from 2pm should you wish to chat informally. At 5pm the fun begins, with a welcome from Fiona followed by a session with the wonderful Elizabeth Cairns that will kick off our retreat in true style. Expect goosebumps and lots of lightbulb moments!

We’ll share an informal alfresco cocktail, a healthy, three course dinner with a couple of glasses of wine included before heading early to bed and ready for the next instalment!

TUES 23RD MAY: AMPLIFY YOUR VISION

What would you be doing if nothing were standing in your way? What projects would you be working on? Who would you be working with and how would you do it? Together we’ll collaborate to build a really strong and unique vision for your business. This is your opportunity to celebrate what you’re already doing brilliantly and take some time to explore where you want to be headed next.

We’ll be joined by the incredible Caz Harrison, who will share her insights on creating communications that win you work: from proposals and services brochures to presenting your work with style. Caz’s company is fully booked six months ahead so clearly, she knows a thing or two about this sort of thing.

WEDS 24TH MAY: CAPTIVATE YOUR CLIENTS

You know where you want to be: now it’s time to set plans in to action to take your communications up a level. How do you tell your story, demonstrate the value in what you do and build your tribe? Fiona will lead an inspirational and highly practical session on celebrating your unique style and using social media to win work without resorting to cringe-tactics.

Trend forecaster and internationally acclaimed mood-boarding professional Gudy Herder will be joining us to lead a practical mood boarding session that will enable you to create a tangible and beautiful vision for your business. Gudy will inspire you with a whole range of practical and beautiful techniques for mood-boarding that you can take into your own creative practice.

THURS 25TH MAY: PREPARE TO DAZZLE

Gather the momentum you need to hit the ground running when you return home in our final workshop session that will leave you invigorated, inspired and crystal clear about what happens next.

A luscious lunch ends our time together and begins the next exciting chapter for your business.

TRANSFERS FROM THE AIRPORT Santanyi is around a 40 minute taxi ride from Palma airport. I’ll set up a private Facebook group so that you can discuss lift shares with your fellow classmates.

SPA TREATMENTS and it is a very lovely spa!

the setting

Cal Reiet is a breathtakingly beautiful, laidback-luxe retreat in the village of Santanyi on the south east coast of Majorca. Just fifteen minutes walk from the beach, set in an acre of beautifully landscaped grounds and surrounded by fields, the hotel is a real haven of tranquillity.

From the moment you enter the gates you know you’ve arrived somewhere special. Effortlessly stylish rooms, warm and inviting living spaces and a lush garden will ensure you feel fully rejuvenated as well as having plenty of Instagram fodder. I mean, seriously, just look at those bathrooms!
