Just announced: Pick your breakout sessions at the retreat! Theyinclude Steve Piersanti, who will give a "state of BK" while other speakers discuss the future of publishing, a recap of the best of highlights of the 2017 BK Marketing Workshop, "The Art of CALLING In," "Appreciative Authoring" and new BK author Cheri Torres brings a fresh perspective with “Conversations Worth Having.” Ms. Sharon Nelson speaks on “The Transformational Consumer” and “The Beginner’s Guide to the Human Soul.” Steve Cady discusses “Finding your Passion” and we have a presentation by the coauthors of “Great Place to Work for All.”
The 2017 Retreat will have more opportunities for relaxation, reunion and relationship building. It is a little less formal and a lot more meaningful. This year's retreat theme is "Looking Forward." It will provide space for what people want to create together in the moment.
What you can expect:
Ample free time to relax, roam and rejuvenate both on and off-site
Mindfully inclusive content for all attendees
Renewed focus on our identity as authors
A formal plan to embrace and engage new attendees
Many small group activities & fewer big group discussions

Deeper relationships and newly forged friendships
A more personalized and fulfilling experience
Silent auction and talent show
