The Escape Experience

Connect, Clear & Create

A retreat for women in leadership who are committed to their personal and professional growth.

Take time out of your busy schedule to Press Pause, escape from the humdrum busyness of daily life, and enter a safe space where you can learn and reflect, meet like-minded female leaders, and re-connect with yourself.

Last year I ran an overnight retreat solely for those who had been on my ‘Looking After the Leaders’ program. Everyone loved it so much that I’ve decided to make it an annual event and open it up to others this year.

The theme of this year’s experiential retreat is ‘Self-Leadership’ and you will be guided to get clarity and perspective on your work, your leadership and your life. Using my unique methodology we will work together to Connect, Clear & Create in a beautiful environment with lots of opportunity for fun.

Retreat Theme:

Self Leadership

“Self-Leadership…is having a developed sense of who you are, what you can do, where you are going coupled with the ability to influence your communications, emotions and behaviour on the way to getting there.”
Bryant, Kazan, 2012

Self-Leadership is Inside-Out Leadership. Join me on this Residential workshop, where you can get away from it all in the luxury surroundings of The Johnstown Estate, to reconnect with yourself. Focus inwards on your personal development as a leader so that you are empowered to be at your best professionally.

You will be facilitated in a safe space to learn about Self-Leadership, what it is, useful models, and how to put it into practice. Through facilitation and interactive exercises over an enjoyable restorative day you will:

Understand your Strengths and how to use them to achieve your goals

Prioritize Self-Care to better meet your needs and build resilience

Recognize how your emotions affect your behaviour and performance

Learn how to use your breathing to calm your difficult emotions

Connect more deeply with yourself using the Mindfulness approach

Learn how to stay true to your authentic self and be in alignment

Make time to gain clarity on what is most important for you moving forward

Reflect quietly and journal in order to go inwards and listen to your wise self


from the madness of the outside world for 24 hours, reconnect with your inner self and gain clarity on how you want to lead yourself and others moving forward.

The goal is to have you leaving bright-eyed and bushy-tailed! Refreshed, renewed and ready to get out there and lead from your authentic self.

Where Will We Unwind?

To support your self leadership journey we will be gathering in the calming and beautiful surroundings of The Johnstown Estate four star hotel, Enfield, Co. Meath.  Just 35 minutes from Dublin City off the M4, it is an accessible yet relaxing venue perfect for our retreat.
