the process

How It Works

step 1
Intro Call

Intro Call

Every program begins with a phone call. We'll discuss your objectives, ask a few questions, and maybe even throw around a few ideas to begin. We'll explain what we actually do, how it all works, and how we might be able to help. From there, we'll send you a summary by e-mail and if all looks good - get started on a proposal.

01
step 2
Research and Propsosals

Research & Proposal (Complimentary)

We're firm believers in knowing who you're dealing with before a single dime gets spent. Based on our initial conversations, we'll start digging through our mountains of resources to prepare a complimentary proposal for you, outlining at least 3-5 retreat locations with hotels, activities, and other elements we think would add some colour to each option.

Based on the proposed options we'll ask you to narrow down your top 3 choices and we will get to work preparing an agenda and high-level prelim budget for you to compare options and make an informed decision.

02
step 3

Letter of Engagement

After seeing our proposal, you'll decide whether you want to engage us to plan your program. Should you wish to dive deeper or change the scope of the initial proposal we will ask you to sign a simple agreement and make a small deposit as a virtual handshake and acknowledgement of the additional work.
 
A signed letter of engagement will entitle you to 3 additional scope changes including; date changes, date pattern changes, destination, hotel options, change in group size, budget increases/ decrease, changes thereafter will incur an additional agreed-upon fee charged per hour.
 
From there, we'll get cracking on diving deeper to find the perfect place for your program.

03
Letter of Engagement
step 4

Contract and Planning

By this stage, we've more or less figured out (A) the destination, (B) where (and when) you're going, and (C) the general outline of the day-to-day retreat agenda.

Only after you're happy with the budget and itinerary from Step 3, will we finalize the process by signing a contract. After that, the real fun begins as we roll our sleeves up and get elbow deep into the heaps of retreat planning that lies ahead. (But don't worry, we'll be doing most of it!)

04
Signed Contract
step 5

On-Site Execution

Our staff will be in the forefront (while simultaneously in the background, clipboards and all), ensuring everything runs seamlessly and your guests' every need and whim is attended to.

Think of us as your butler, concierge, and Bat Phone all rolled into one – except instead of Alfred, call us Moniker.

FAQs

A Couple of Common Corporate Retreat Questions

Where are the best locations for a corporate retreat?
Orange Arrow

Finding the best corporate retreat location depends entirely on the objective of your retreat. From all-inclusive properties in Mexico, to fantastic locations near NYC, or unique destinations around the world - there are so many corporate retreat locations globally that work for groups of different needs and sizes. While we can’t recommend a location unless we know more, take a look at our blog posts for great corporate retreat planning ideas!

How do I structure my retreat agenda?
Orange Arrow

Similar to deciding on a location, structuring your retreat agenda depends entirely on the objective of your retreat. Retreats can range from one night to seven, and can include days full of meetings or no meetings at all! While it’s hard to answer this question without knowing more, check out our blog posts on structuring your retreat agenda, or reach out to start a proposal. 

What type of retreat activities or retreat games would you suggest?
Orange Arrow

Activities and games are the best part of corporate retreat planning. We always suggest a mix or balance of team-building activities and optional activities. We usually have to know more about your team before suggesting activities or games, but we have some fantastic ideas on our blog, here!

How much does a company retreat cost?
Orange Arrow

We definitely can’t answer this question without knowing more about your destination, activities, hotels, or flights. There are always so many additional costs to account for and take a look at our budgeting cheat sheet to learn more. Reach out via our contact form if you would like a complimentary proposal that will showcase ideal potential locations and venues as well as the associated costs.
