This year, we’re all about going further – more time with speakers, more transparency, more space to exchange ideas and resources, more business transforming, life changing “aha” moments, and best of all, more over the top surprises! We’ll delve into four key areas throughout our speaker sessions: client relationships and best business practices, business strategy and marketing, the design process, and profitability! Plus, we’ll spend a morning playing with flowers, as we create gorgeous centerpieces in one of our favorite Charleston venues! Our speakers are more committed than ever to offer you the best of their experience, wisdom and insight, and we’re eager and excited to invite you to what we believe will be our best retreat yet! xo, Betsy + Katie
