Corporate Retreats

Corporate Retreats

Corporate retreats are a powerful tool for every organization, but can be difficult to plan and execute effectively.

Both content and logistics need to be extensively planned to get the most from your time and investment. The Ivey Academy corporate retreat experience provides your team with an opportunity to explore strategic issues and their impact on your organization over the course of two-and-a-half days – without having to plan your own speakers or meals.We offer a selection of modules focused on both timeless and contemporary themes:

  • Strategy
  • Leadership and leading change
  • Team effectiveness
  • Communications and executive presence
  • Disruption and innovation
  • Design thinking, analytics, and big data
  • Crisis preparation, damage control, and corporate reputation management
  • Other relevant topic areas

An Example Schedule

The core of the experience is a mix of facilitation and executive learning, built around three half-day sessions and well-designed social and team-building time. The entire retreat is programmed and executed for you by our experienced program management team.

The concluding corporate session on the final day is left for you to structure and facilitate based on your needs at the time. This is a defining opportunity to structure how you will carry forward the momentum of the discussion and decisions made during the retreat.
