February 26th-March 1st, 2020

4 days, 4 nights

Every beginning of the year, I feel the desire to take a step back and reflect on the year that has just passed. It's a moment to celebrate what you have achieved and also the opportunity to plan with intention where you want to be.
I had always envisioned being able to go away somewhere inspiring and do exactly this, work on my business. Make time to understand what didn't work? Why? Did I focus my energy on the right things? Did I have a clear strategy to guide me on making choices during the year?  This retreat is about you and designing your 2020 business roadmap.

Start the year with a clear vision of where you want to go and plan how to make the most of your 2020 in our creative business retreat.
This is an exclusive escape of four days tailored around the Art of Business and Self-Discovery for entrepreneurs. It is designed to plan out your business, refine your vision and mastermind with like-minded entrepreneurs.

These four days are designed for solo and creative entrepreneurs taking their first steps along a new path and for those wanting to grow their business with focus, because it's not always easy to know where to dedicate your time and resources.

I will guide you to refine your vision, explore your brand voice and improve your storytelling and communication skills.






Finally, slow down and take the moment to meet others, enjoying Moroccan mint tea and this time for yourself to disconnect and think out of the box.

We begin exploring where you are in your life and business and what you need for self-actualization.

DAY 2 /
The Art of Business

A day dedicated to refining your business vision, clarify your offerings and reflect on where you want to be, tools you need, and where to focus your time and energy.

We will plan together a roadmap with a clear strategy and goals. You will reflect on your priorities, strengths and what you can let go of.

DAY 3 /
The Art of Storytelling

The desert's majestic atmosphere is the perfect place to bring more of who you are into what you do. We will explore the art of personal branding.


Make space to recognize your own voice and transmit what makes you or your business unique, whether it's your why, your story or simply you.


"As the CEO of a creative agency, I felt I had already found my voice and designed the life I want to live. But Katherine taught me so much in those 4 days in Marrakech, every hour was curated with meaning. Every experience carefully thought through, catering to my curiosity and constant need to learn.
I returned to NYC inspired, patient and more creative then I had been in a long time. With stories to share and unique experiences to remember."
