A Project-focused
Retreat for businesswomen

Gift yourself time and space

Busy business owners seldom gift themselves sufficient time out to focus on evaluating where they've been and developing new strategies to take them forward.

That's understandable in the short term, given how demanding and hectic running a business is, but untenable in the long term.

Innovation is essential for growth. Your ideas, big goals and significant projects need to be taken off the shelf and given the attention they deserve.

It's also important to understand that ideation at the highest level is difficult in isolation. Accessing a brains trust that provides a fresh perspective on your challenges and thinking can open doors you weren't aware of.

And finally, the value of refuelling yourself in a beautiful home in the country cannot be underestimated.

These are just some of the reasons I host retreats for businesswomen.

Pause for a moment and imagine...

  • Four nights and three full days to work intentionally on your project
  • Being deeply supported, stretched and nurtured
  • Reconnecting to your values and strengths, leveraging them for maximum impact
  • Mastermind sessions to tap into the insights and resources of generous, smart peers
  • Personal mentoring sessions to dig down into your challenges and goals
  • Great food and conversation and plenty of time to unwind and relax in a gorgeous country location

Spending time with like-minded people who can help you get clear, create a plan and commit to action is worth its weight in gold. I guarantee you will feel inspired, re-energised, and uplifted.

What might you work on?

A project-based retreat is one where you bring a big idea, a challenge, a conundrum, an opportunity, or a project to work on.

The types of projects retreat participants bring are varied and have included:

  • Developing (and recording) an online course
  • Comprehensive business repositioning
  • Finishing writing a book
  • Developing a podcast
  • Writing copy for a website
  • Creating a new marketing strategy for a launch

You'll share your focus on the pre-retreat call so your colleagues can begin to consider what resources, insights or connections they have to share.

This call also helps me to develop the agenda that will best for each group I facilitate.

The retreat snapshot

In Australia, a venue that is on average 2-2.5 hours out of Sydney, typically on the Central Coast, the Blue Mountains or Southern Highlands.

4 nights of delicious accommodation in your private room, all meals, personal mentoring at the retreat, masterminding, workshop materials and a surprise or two.

The Retreat agenda is kept deliberately fluid to meet you where you are at in your evolution and will blend together:

  • Group mentoring and masterminding
  • Open discussions
  • Individual hot seats and focused problem-solving
  • Self-leadership development
  • Relaxation and self-care

What else do you need to know?

Meals and Catering

  • Lunches and dinners are a mix of in-house catering and visits to local restaurants and are included in your Retreat fee – alcohol is to be purchased at your own expense. We usually have a full kitchen at the retreat venues.
  • I provide snacks - almonds, grapes, dips, biscuits and still and sparkling water. Please bring anything else you’d like to drink or nibble on whilst we’re there.
  • If you have any special dietary needs, let me know at least 1 week prior to the Retreat so I can plan accordingly for our meals.

What to bring

  • Comfortable clothes for lounging, plenty of paper/a journal for writing, pens and felt tips if you prefer. You can choose to write on your laptop if you prefer.

Pre-Retreat Work

  • In addition to our pre-retreat call, a detailed background questionnaire will be sent for completion.

I'm Angela Raspass

I'm a Business Strategist and Mentor for female founders of service-based businesses, practices, and consultancies. You likely have a strong desire for more impact, which I define as a new level of contribution, fulfilment, and financial reward in the next chapter of your business.

When businesswomen reach this stage, the three most common problems I’ve noticed are:
  • Uncertainty with where to focus, which ideas and opportunities to prioritise
  • Being reactive as you juggle operations, delivery, and marketing
  • Frustration, wanting to have more impact through your work

I help you to shift from uncertainty to clarity by giving your ideas and approach structure, from reactivity to being guided by a proactive strategy, and from frustration to creating the deepened impact you are fully capable of.
