Paresa Collection - Exclusive Experience - Chedi Club Tanah Gajah Ubud Bali, Indonesia

Creating a collection of memories and the promise to unlock your best next…

….and where else to raise your creativity to thrive than in an exclusive location surrounded by the powerful energy of tropical Bali?

As a Business Executive, Entrepreneur and Advancing Leader, there are infinite versions of you just waiting to be more fully expressed, realised or discovered. Picture it – how often do you give yourself the deserving privilege of a timeout to reflect and explore what you want to grow into next?

Join us for an exclusive retreat to advance your personal and professional development with a long game in mind. Through a series of masterclasses on LIFE DESIGN FOR AGILE LEADERS and by engaging the compelling dynamics of Photography, you will enjoy a self-discovery journey that is off the beaten corporate path.

The Life Design for Agile Leaders Masterclasses is led by renowned Management Consultant on Leadership Effectiveness, Steve Lawrence. Steve aims to take growth-minded leaders on an extraordinary life and career wayfinding journey. Using an informed perspective approach and the application of a unique set of human-centric design tools, discover your real desires and ignite your creativity to call to action what matters most to you.

The unique aspect of Leadership Vision through Photography Masterclasses is led by internationally acclaimed celebrity photographer, Stephen Wayda. This highly interactive programme will give you exposure to daring disruptive thinking at lesser-known Balinese spots that are rich in authenticity and natural beauty. Stephen will guide you on-location in the art of seeing and framing different perspectives – and the unique explorations will encourage expanded confidence for value creation through a different lens of inquiry.

Set against the lush green paddy fields of Bali, where every turn is a nod to timeless natural beauty, the retreat offers the highest standards of comfort, service and a well-balanced programme to enrich your mind and encourage rejuvenation.

Whether you are in a career transition or want to be more fulfilled in your current state of success, this retreat is for a small select group of like-minded individuals who are committed to purposefully pursuing a life well lived beyond the ordinary.
