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. Tara-Nicholle 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
