Corporate retreats are a great tool for getting your team to really fire up and come up with new ideas that are going to result in tangible improvements for your business. And it doesn’t have to be just fluorescent lighting, notepads and mints. And here at Venuemob, we’re seeing a real shift towards unique corporate retreats.
Unique corporate retreats – even just saying it makes you feel excited. Combine meetings, team building and rewards in one amazing setting and you’re sure to hit the ground running into the next quarter.
Tailor-made indulgence: Situated in postcard-perfect Hunter Valley, Kirkton Park Hunter Valley is a winner for unique corporate retreats. With all the facilities on site for a full blown conference, you can make the most of your time away from the desk. And best of all –Kirkton Park Hunter Valley are the masters of the unique experience – from bonfires, to craft beer tasting and everything in between.
Wilson!: Get cast away, without the hassle of being in a plane crash or having to use palm leaves as toilet paper. The Tangalooma Island Resort is a short boat ride from Brisbane across Moreton Bay. There are a number of boardrooms and meeting rooms where teams can stir up a (tropical) brainstorm. And at the end of your busy day full of talks and presentations, you can hand feed the dolphins at sunset. Dolphins are one of nature’s smartest creatures after all, maybe they’ll have some good ideas on how to improve your margins by 7% next quarter.
Foxtastic: Corporate retreats aren’t exclusively for those who drive luxury cars and have wine club memberships. Escape to the country with your team, without breaking the coffers. Cheeky Fox Retreat, with its sweeping views of the Kinglake Ranges, is a guaranteed stress-melter. Spend the day at the nearby Kinglake Forest Adventures and fly through the trees. Nothing will bring your team closer together than the shared experience of hurtling face-first through a forest.
Swing and a hit: If there’s one thing that corporates love, it’s golf…and generalisations. Golf is the sport of choice for nobles, executives and presidents (Obama, I’m looking at you). At The Banksias retreat in Crescent Head, you’re surrounded by beach, bush, serenity and a par 33 golf course. For those who don’t like to chip, drive and putt, you can sit in the outdoor spa, head onto the beach or meander through the beautiful Limeburners National Park. How’s the serenity?
Purple is a fruit: Cocktails by the pool is such a cliché. Instead, go for wine by the pool! Much classier. And wine is (sort of) good for you! So it’s basically a health retreat. Two birds, one stone. At the Novotel Barossa Valley Resort, you’re smack bang in the middle of one of the best wine growing regions in the world. Spend the morning in presentations, and then spend the afternoon at Jacob’s Creek winery, which is literally around the corner.
Celebrate the classics: FINE – you can have drinks with umbrellas and deck chairs…and endless sunshine, and conference rooms, and a golf course and cocktails on a superyacht! Sounds like a scene out of Wolf of Wall Street. But you don’t have to commit a federal offence to experience the good life. The InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort in Queensland has got you covered. You may need to supply your own sunscreen though.
One stop shop: Conference spaces. Accommodation. Amazing food. Bocce. Beach. Everything you need is within a 2km radius of Mantra Lorne. Spend the morning team building with a round of bocce, the afternoon in team meetings, the evening strolling down to Lorne beach to watch the sunset. Being in one of the most relaxing and beautiful locations in Victoria, there’s no better place to unwind after a busy day, month or year of working hard.
