Due to COVID-19 the 2020 retreat is postponed until June 7-9, 2021 in the same city and the same hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn at the Aksarben in Omaha, Nebraska.
Every moment at the event stresses participants capturing ideas to take home to present and pilot test. To reinforce that, each speaker gives participants specific challenges for when they return home. It is sort of like homework.
Every speaker stresses a collaborative and interactive discussion with the participants. It is not a place to sit back, listen, and relax. Speakers take little time for lecturing and lots of time having interactive conversations with the audience.
There are 48 participants including 16 speakers – a 2:1 ratio! We are like a boutique hotel – different, small, personal and intimate. But we are unlike an exclusive boutique hotel in that we are less expensive than other conferences.
