Why should your team do this together?
We believe in the power of gathering. Connection between people can only lead to good things, and taking the time to learn, collaborate and create as a team has the power to change how you operate going forward. Also, the most in-demand skill of 2019 is creativity, so it might be time to encourage some of those all important skills.
How is this different from a regular work retreat?
Firstly, it’s not all team building exercises, brainstorming and listening to the experts talk — but we can make that happen, if it’s what you need.
It’s a hands-on, learning-by-doing, and personal experience. You’ll be learning a handful of practical skills, seeing what innovation and creative thinking looks like in practice, and be given plenty of downtime to soak them all in. We’ll help you select workshops, tours and discussions that actually appeal to you and your team. You’ll be taking time not just for yourself, but for the wellbeing and stimulation of your entire workplace. Nothing in The Creative Refresh program is put on for show — the studios, homes, workshops and kitchens you’ll be visiting are entirely authentic, operational spaces.
Who should go?
Individuals, teams and entire companies can all benefit. If you’re a creative who feels burnt out and badly needs a source of inspiration, or a looking for a different way to interact with your employees, or have a new creative project that needs space to grow, this could be what you are looking for.
Why don’t I just go on a spiritual or wellness retreat?
Not everyone likes puppies, not everyone likes ice-cream and not everyone is moved by spirituality and wellness. Of course, Bali is brimming with incredible mind-body experiences – meditation, bodywork and traditional ceremonies, among them – that can be woven into your refresh. But we don’t want the experience to be limited to wellness-only activities. Besides, there are plenty of people doing a solid job of that already. We’re here to get your mind ticking.
What are the benefits?
A happier, relaxed, better-connected team.
A handful of frighteningly impressive new craft skills.
Exposure to internationally-renowned creatives and their workspaces.
A connection with one of the most creative communities in the world.
A new lease on creativity.
Weather permitting, a golden holiday glow.
