TIME TO GET EXCITED!!
Our first ever Kalkan retreat, organised for ladies in business, wishing to connect and socialise on a deeper level than business meetings usually permit, was in 2016. Each year this business women’s retreat has become more and more popular. Our group capacity this year will be limited to approximately 10 lucky ladies ready to relax, learn, share and enjoy one another’s company.
Each and every one of you brings knowledge, support and inspiration to this retreat for which we are eternally grateful. Not to mention the amount of fun we experience together through great activities, several of which are included and others optional.
Why not join us on this year’s exclusive trip? After all you are worthy of a break from working in your business especially in order to step back and refresh your motivation for working on your business.
Lovely ladies from a variety of business backgrounds, many from the wonderful membership tribe of http://sistersnog that essentially have these very important things in common:-
Business owners or partners
A commitment to support others
An openness to discuss challenges and wins
A willingness to share knowledge and advice
A penchant for fun
Is this for you?
If you like the sound of the above then it surely is. It’s a natural form of networking and team building while developing our skills in other areas too.
It’s an opportunity to step out of your business in order to work on it, gain ideas and learn from others in a mellow, laid back atmosphere.
There’s an easy structure to the days and no pressure, so if you need to hop on a zoom call or get a quote out to a client or even just need a little ‘me time’ nobody will bat an eyelid.
That said there is plenty available to ‘do’ if you’d like to. From a stunning, sunset cruise with dinner, on our private gulet, to walking through wonderful countryside, culminating with the most beautifully presented breakfast you have possibly ever seen!
The surrounding areas of Kalkan has some truly great places to visit which are totally inspiring from a nature or a historical viewpoint. Of course if you prefer to relax on your sunbed, that’s ok too.
Where will this take place?
In glorious Kalkan, a charming bay resort on the turquoise Mediterranean coast of Turkey. We have reserved two luxurious 5 bedroom villas on one plot forming a part of our Cedar Villa Collection
Each room has its own en suite bathroom and twin beds or a super double. There’s a large pool terrace, ideal for sunbathing and exercising. We love to eat al fresco so breakfast is laid out on the dining table and we also make use of the barbeque too.
The kitchen has a dishwasher, 2 fridge/freezers and ample crockery etc. There’s also a handy downstairs’ loo meaning you don’t need to schlepp up to your room when you’re in the living room or outdoor areas. And talking of schlepping there’s no need to worry about carrying your suitcases up the stairs as the villas also have a lift.
