Fall Retreat – Canmore – Sept 24, 2011

EBC 1-day Fall Retreat

A Personal Invitation to a High Level, Business-Building Gathering of Open-Hearted, Conscious Speakers, Writers and Trainers

Saturday, Sept 24, 2011 from 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM (MT)

Canmore, Alberta


As a member of the Evolutionary Business Council or an invited guest,  you are welcome to join an intimate gathering in Canmore, Alberta on September 24, 2011

Imagine this . . .

You wake up at 8am and look out your windows at the sun-drenched rocky mountains.

You enjoy waking up with no big responsibilities at all and trundle down to breakfast.

Sitting across the table from you, separated only by a cup of the best fair trade coffee you’ve had in ages, is Teresa de Grosbois, whom you’ve heard on the collaboration calls but never actually met! You’ve been dying to pick her brain about how to go pandemic. Sitting next to you is Harrison Klein, one of the biggest online personalities in transformation. On the other side is Shawne Duperon, who has worked out the secret of becoming a media darling.

At the next table are several more global personalities. You are putting faces to names and know that there is so much collective knowledge packed into this room that smoke will indeed be rising before the end of the day.

You enjoy a rich conversation as you head over to the meeting room where you sit in a circle with other inspiring luminaries and enjoy a round of introductions – with each person somehow bringing something important and unique to the room. The day is spent in meaningful and useful conversation and collaboration.

You stay up far too late that night scheming on ways you can collaborate and making notes of all the cool and easy things you can do to grow your business when you get home.

The end result?

The Evolutionary Business Council (EBCouncil) is an invitation-only event where I am gathering some of the savviest, most leading-edge conscious entrepreneurs I know for a day of masterminding, learning from each other – and supporting each other wherever it’s a fit.

You will grow your influence, build your mastermind groups, and create lifelong business relationships (and maybe even friendships) with other thought leaders who want to make a difference.

If you take a look at who’s coming, I think you’ll agree there’s a good chance this will happen.

You will:

– gain powerful alliances with others who are commited to teaching business and success principles;

– compare and learn about powerful techniques other trainers, speakers and authors are using to grow their reach, including both traditional and social media;

– have the opportunity to “sit on the hot seat” having the room brainstorm how to help you meet your immediate goals;

– have a safe environment in which to expand your knowledge of the success principles and work on personal blocks that may be stopping you.

If you are an invited guest, you will also have the opportunity to learn more about and join the Evolutionary Business Council in a more long term way if that feels like a fit for you

This one day event begins Saturday morning and ends Saturday at 5.  We encourage you to stick around and recreate in the mountains on the Sunday as we will also be informally organizing groups for some fun activities.   The event cost includes your lunch and coffee.

Accommodation can be booked separately through the Ramanda in Canmore.  We are encouraging attendees to consider sharing a room with another attendee to get to know one new person at a stronger level.  If you’re up for this experience, please contact us and we’ll help match you with someone.  Please site this event to receive a special group rate.

COST: Non-member $547.00*  EBC Member rate: $247.00* Before September 15: $217

*Price includes lunch.
