Putting together a strategic session with a group of executives is a difficult proposition - you need a place where phones and laptops are mostly put away with the space and time to get people to open up.

If you're a large/ distributed company you may be bringing in people from all over the world...you need to make sure that your executives feel taken care of, have great energy, and emotionally feel excited/ invested in the discussions to come.

Historically, many of these have been done in hotels...but frankly having a lot of strangers wandering around and being trapped in a hotel ballroom seems like an odd setting to get started. In the modern era, there are gorgeous retreat spaces off of the beaches of Malibu or in the South Bay, funky apartments on the Westside, lavish villas in Bel Air/ Beverly Hills or up in the Hollywood Hills, or unique ranches in Calabasas/ Thousand Oaks.

Bite has experience with executive retreats (one of our owners is a former McKinsey consultant and has run a number of strategy/ innovation offsites) and we would be thrilled to help you put together a beautiful location, materials to hold a great event, brain food, and entertainment/ experiences to help teams really come together emotionally and strategically.

Potential Measures of Success in Designing a Successful Executive Retreat

How do you keep people productive and on schedule?

An executive retreat can be one of the most important events of the year for a company. Leadership gets to step away from the day to day to gather their thoughts on a long term strategic perspective for the company. Making sure this happens at the right pace and on the right note can have ripple effects on all of the organization's stakeholders: customers, employees, investors.

  • How do the right conversations happen?: Open and honest conversations generally involve proximity and trust. Breaking bread, serving each other, identifying common ground are all things that can often be aided by seating position and symbolism at the table.
  • How do you stay on track?: Boundaries and respect are important. Generally it means acknowledging what everyone is saying while having mechanisms to keep the conversation flowing. In some groups a facilitator is the answer, in others, one of the executives may be put in an executive sponsor position. In all cases, making sure there is ample coffee, snacks, and healthy fuel will keep brains engaged and sugar drops at bay.
