For people who want to put their unique contribution to good work in this world

Have you ever asked yourself what your unique contribution to this world could be? Or how your leadership can truly benefit people and the planet?

You’ve worked hard to get where you are. Dedication, creative thinking and a finely honed sense of what people deeply want. A refusal to give up when things get tough. Yet you know, deep down, that your work isn’t finished.

Lead Like a River is an eight-day leadership retreat in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. You’ll shape a path for your professional and personal life that you, and only you, can follow.

You’re ready to harness the talents, experience and vision that have already served you well and redirect them in a way to change the world.

A Call to Adventure

Lead Like a River is an adventure. Yes, you’ll be brought right back to nature. But the real adventure begins with you finding a renewed sense of purpose.

A Call for Change

You’ll know that however far you’ve got, there’s further to go. And you need to adapt and grow.

A Call for Giving

You’ll feel you’ve got more to contribute. Your skills and experience are now ready to make a bigger difference in the world.

Our next journey begins:

The five big reasons people want to Lead Like a River:

  1. “I’m standing at a crossroads in my life and asking, “What Now?”
  2. “I want to feel confident in who I truly am and what I have to offer to the world.”
  3. “It’s time I let go of the old beliefs and behaviours that hold me back.”
  4. “I want to make a stand for what I truly believe in.”
  5. “I want my work to make a more meaningful difference to the lives of others.”

“Life changing. Lead Like a River was a profound and moving experience. I have become a more inspirational and effective leader."

Kathryn O’Brien, Creative Director, Germany

“Trebbe and Eugene are the two amazing shepherds who guided me through this journey in the high Atlas Mountains of Morocco, learning the signs from nature and listening to my inner voice. The answer is always there ... once I start listening to my heart. Experience of a lifetime, unreal!"

Mono Lui, Product Director
