How To Make Your Company Retreat A Success

1.) Choose a Fun Venue!
Be sure to research and book a venue that is fun and different from what they are used to on a daily basis.  These are typically difficult to find, especially when dealing with large groups of people, so you want to be sure to try and book in advance.  If your company is in an office building, try booking something outdoors and give your team a breath of fresh air.  There are venues available that will allow you to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, but will also provide spaces for you to meet, host strategic planning sessions, and give presentations.  Giving everyone a break from their everyday routine, will help encourage creativity, motivation, and increase morale.
