How I Unlocked Story Magic in Lisbon’s Alleyways: Introducing Strategic Solitude


For 12 years, I

  • organized retreats in foreign countries.

  • hosted 8 week storytelling intensives for women in business.

  • did 1:1 coaching with leaders who wanted to give a TEDxtalk.

Three years ago,  I merged all three into one offering.

I introduced the “VIP Day” a way to do strategic storytelling work with client 1 on 1. Why?

  • It created white space in their minds

  • It created white space in their calendars

  • It got them outside their comfort zone

One of my VIP clients thought differently about the power of “environment design” after a private tour of the oldest hospital in Barcelona.

Another CEO screamed was ecstatic about being outside her comfort zone swimming among the rocks in Turkey.

My expertise, my research, my high standards of travel meant something. 

Introducing Strategic Solitude

I can host you for this 1:1 intensive in New York City.

I can also host you in Paris. Nice, or Lisbon this year. It’s called “Strategic Solitude” (formerly VIP Day)

Of course, if you come that far, I won’t just have you sit in a boardroom with me in another country.

For the 36 hours we are together, I will build a cultural immersive experience around you too.

We will work on a storytelling goal that is bespoke to you.   This product is by request only. Should I sound like the right fit for you, we’ll proceed in taking a deposit and start a proposal for you.

Domestic Strategic Solitude clients get a car service from home to NYC where we will work together.

International Strategic Solitude clients arrange their own flights. I handle everything once you are on the ground.
