“The retreats have given me new ideas, challenged the way I think and manage my company. Even if we’re having a very difficult period due to the economy or changes in the digital world, I come back energized and ready to roll up my sleeves. I have  a better mindset on how to attack problems. I’m also equipped with the right tools and information.”

— Joan Auritt, founder of Auritt Communications Group in New York, New York
