I’ve got some BIG NEWS – we are having a GeniusShared Retreat in 2018!
The GeniusShared Reflect & Recharge Retreat will be held Oct 18 to 21, 2018 in the Metro Vancouver area (yes – Canada!)
If you were EVER part of a SOBCon or GeniusShared event then you know about “the magic” that we hope to carry forward into this new GeniusShared 2018 retreat. You see — it’s that magic — plus the trust that exists within the community — that has collectively touched us all. It’s what has helped us to build relationships, opportunities and businesses in ways that are truly quite astounding. To me that’s the “what was” that I hope we can bring to the “what is” as we move forward with GeniusShared. Between now and the 2018 retreat — I also hope we can find ways to reignite and grow the essence of GeniusShared so that it can begin to go to some new places.
So what’s going to happen at this retreat? Who will be speaking?
Here’s what I know as of today:
We’ve already confirmed several amazing speakers — names to be shared in the near future. They are smart, generous and truly helpful people. And like me — they believe the 2018 event will be more than a little special.
I see bringing forward the models and masterminds (from SOBCon days) because those have brought the community a lot of value over the years. A lot of other suggestions have come forward in recent days — including going for walks close to the beach, a night in Vancouver for dinner, having some art built into the retreat and possibly even flying kites! Plus — the concept of a collective 2018 GeniusShared project such as video or something has also been suggested.
And — wondering where Liz Strauss is related to the 2018 event? Well — she’s with me — but to be clear I’m the one running with this — with her blessing and absolute encouragement. And as always, she’s adding in her brilliance and helping me test my thinking along the way. You might just see her in Vancouver for this.
Where is it happening?
We are currently planning to host the retreat in a historic house in the Metro Vancouver area that is within 30 minutes of Vancouver International Airport. We will share more about this as soon as we can since we can’t formally book the venue until we are exactly a year from the date.
There are ONLY 40 spots available for this event — so — if you want to be part of this — block the dates and register now. Your early support will help make this event come together with ease and energy. The registration fee is affordable and can be paid in full or over multiple payments. Plus it’s in Canadian funds; which currently offers a nice discount to our US friends due to the exchange rate. I will be booking a block of hotel rooms at a group rate that I expect will price out at about $140 -$150 Canadian a night but there are other options in the area too.
Share Your Genius With Us and Others
Feel free to PM me – Jane Boyd – on Facebook or leave a comment below with any thoughts or feedback you have about this event. And please consider inviting a friend to be part of this retreat too — as much as we need a core group of GeniusShared and SOBCon people in the room, we also need some new friends to be part of the magic that 2018 will be.
I SO hope you will be part of this. Come to Vancouver and share your genius with us in 2018.
