“AS A LEADERSHIP COACH for the past 10 years, and having lead workshops for companies, it has always been a dream of mine to lead retreats that got people out of the conference room and out of their context, which is where true shift of perspectives can happen. I wanted to combine my passion for travel and adventure to lead retreats, but did not know how to secure the perfect location, especially from the US, market, run the logistics, take payments, safety and liability challenges, communication to the participants about travel and logistics, and all that happens when running a successful retreat. . .
Leadership Development Consultant and Executive Coach
. . . I wanted to partner with someone who not only understood my leadership philosophy, but was highly experienced in running retreats in different countries where I trusted I could bring my clients from corporations who had high expectations, and were nervous about traveling to a different country. . . .

. . .I found Christy with Venture Within and we talked about being able to co host, and where I could showcase the content that I have developed over time. Christy suggested Costa Rica at a barefoot luxury hotel, in the jungle and local. I completely trusted Christy from beginning with follow through, detail, knowledge and experience leading retreats in different countries, as well as her business acumen. . . .

. . .Our first retreat together was almost seamless. We are great partners, similar philosophies and compliment each other’s strengths perfectly. We learned from one another and pulled off a life changing experience for not only myself to fulfill a dream, but also for the participants. Partnering with Christy was one of the best decisions I have ever made and look forward to many more together.”
