Facilitation – Meetings, Offsites, Retreats

As Billy Joel reminds us, “Some folks like to get away, take a holiday from the neighborhood.” Even at work – sometimes we just need to get away from it all. To put aside our regular tasks and give ourselves permission to think. Whether it be in person in a conference room, virtually over Zoom or Teams, or gathered together miles away from the office, we need dedicated time to dive deep into challenges, dream big with strategy, and connect with each other. Re-engage, re-inspire, and re-juvenate your team with a perspective-shifting offsite / retreat / summit / event.

How It Works

Einstein (supposedly) said that we can’t solve our problems with the same thinking that created them. And too often offsites are just more of the same – like bringing your laptop on vacation or transferring your kitchen to your campsite just to cook the same stuff outdoors (like Tina’s grandmother did when they camped in Maine). Break out of your rut – let WorkJoy help you reimagine your next event.

The WorkJoy team partners with you to understand your desired outcomes and then co-creates an experience that will educate while it engages and entertains. We build on what works with your team and align with cultural preferences, crafting and curating a seamless experience that will keep them coming back for more.

A few of our recent offsite/retreat/summit success stories:

  • Featured speaker at international retail summit for 200+ store managers
  • Designer of/facilitator for three-day offsite retreat for 40+ regional nonprofit staff members
  • Designer of/facilitator for day-long strategic planning retreat for global nonprofit board members
  • Featured speaker at offsite “development day” for 200+ professional services advisory employees
  • Facilitator for eCommerce fashion brand’s development day within a larger strategy offsite

We love what we do – and so do our clients.

Our team members told us it was the best retreat they had attended – and wished they could have spent more time in sessions! They loved the pace and energy of the facilitation and the engaging exercises that made them go deep into the big rocks facing us in 2023. WorkJoy skillfully balanced keeping things moving with giving enough time for everyone to participate, feel heard, and contribute meaningfully. We already are digging into the results of the brainstorming.”
