The Thrive Experience

Location: Ferrycarrig Hotel in Co. Wexford

A Re-Charge/Re-Set Event For Business Leaders

This annual experience continues to prove itself as a powerful way for attendees to get clarity, insights and focus on key areas of their lives. Numbers are limited to ensure the best fit for everyone, you are asked to complete a short application form here. Please note that application does not guarantee attendance - The right mix of experience and personalities is key for The Thrive Experience and depending on the level of interest and the best-fit criteria, we are not doing first come, first served.

Who’s It For?

Open minded and experienced leaders: Business owners, Directors, C-level executives and Self-Employed people. As you know it's often lonely being a leader and not everyone can relate to it. This experience gives you an opportunity to be around people who really understand the challenges but can also help with the opportunities.

What Previous Attendees Say

"With no expectations joining the session as we didn't know the full agenda or details of those attending, I found it uplifting, revealing, inspirational, energising but mostly it was a lesson in self awareness and provided me with the tools I needed to reach the goals I aimed for in advance of the meeting. I hope to attend another one in the near future."
- Una Dillon, Managing Director Europe, Merchant Risk Council
"I had a great experience on the Thrive Experience. It was fantastic to spend time with like minded people that have the exact same issues as i have. I took the time to re-set and get my head straight, which I achieved. Shane was very relaxed, but also steered the group well through the whole weekend. A must for all Business Leaders!"
- Aidan Boyle, MD Weslin Construction
"Having signed up for the Thrive Experience I was apprehensive as I was not quite sure what I was letting myself in for. I quickly found my self immersed among an inspiring bunch of fellow participants. The program was challenging but packed a serious positive punch for me. My thought process is considerably clearer since undertaking the program and I am now equipped with the tools to keep it that way."
- Billy O'Reilly, MD Wicklow Height For Hire
"Thrive is a fantastic Mind Body & Soul, yet also fully business event. A must - whether you're a CEO or Entrepeneur. I left feeling inspired, charged and with a clear view of what my next steps were. Amazing experience!!"
- Miriam Simon, Growth Strategist
"Returning home after Thrive I felt a lot more alive and energised than I have done for some time. I felt like I was flatlining before the experience - going the motions of daily life without necessarily feeling fully engaged at times. Thrive has taught me how important it is to look after your personal wellbeing in order to 'thrive' in business. I would definitely reccommend part-taking in Thrive if you need to get your mojo back!"
- Tracey Moran, Director, Moran Red Cow Hotel Group

Events testimontials

sc-saba“I have attended Shane’s workshop’s and have worked with him on a one to one basis. His guidance is excellent and rewarding as it has helped me be more focused on my business. He has fantastic intuition, business acumen and an ability to challenge and get the best from his clients.”

Paul Cadden, Owner of Saba Dublin Restaurant

next-gen-sc“In the month after attending TimeShift I’ve had great results. My team is significantly over our sales target because of improved productivity and energy. And I’m getting out of the office earlier than ever because our key results are done which gives me more time for my personal life.”

Dervila Corver, Director, Next Generation Recruitment

cricket-sc“TimeShift helps to develop and understand your working life. It’s more than just a work course though. The course is so work and life changing that really the pre course material should sell the product better.”

Andrew Leonard, Marketing Manager Cricket Ireland, Score – 9/10

“It is not only essential for personal success, clarity and direction, it is important for good quality of life. The workshop gave me a lot of food for thought. I‘ve realised how little energy and clarity I have at the moment and how much I can be scared of the future.”

Sarah Doyle, Executive Coach

“Blueprint is a great day to organise self-clarity on what you want to achieve with lots of practical tools to help you make really a change. The day helped me to re-look at my overall objectives both personally and in business and it helped me to figure out what I really want.”

Phelim Pekaar, Score 10/10

brown-thomas-logoWorking with Shane over the past 8 weeks has has really changed my life. The work (Blueprint + TimeShift) has had a really positive effect on my productivity, clarity of mind and ability to get more of what matters done.

Before I was focusing solely on my professional life but not getting the most from my personal life. I now realise that balanced success isn’t just a concept but actually possible. I have learned the importance of planning to do the things I love to do the most in all areas of my life.

I feel much more in control of my work and life goals and feel like I can achieve anything. The results to date have been fantastic and I have developed so much personally.

Gretta Nash Cadden, Human Resources Manager, Brown Thomas Regional Stores and BT2

growth-investments-logoShane has not only transformed my business, dragging me into the 21st century, and helping me create a vision that I am proud of, but he has also given me the tools to find the balance between my work and personal life. I am a much happier and fulfilled person all round since engaging with him.

The Thrive Forum is unique. 12 successful business owners from diverse fields. People that you admire, using their collective knowledge to further you and your business. Holding you to your values and pushing you when you fall short, chaired by Shane. Sounds too good to be true, but it’s not.

Richard Cotter, Managing Director, Growth Investments Ltd.

beautiful-jobs-logoI thought I was too busy to do this workshop but Shane convinced me to try it and I am so glad that I did.  I am shocked at what I have achieved in the past month. My business has immediately improved because of my focus and mental clarity.

This training has impacted on my entire life – business and personal. I can’t stress how valuable a course like this is. It has been very inspiring, energising and refreshing!

Highly recommended for anyone wanting to get the best of themselves and reach an ideal work-life balance, and also great work results.

Maria Morgan, Managing Director,

I had attended Shane’s one day Blueprint workshop previously and found it very beneficial in creating clarity and focus on the important things in life. I was unable to attend the workshop this year but thankfully Shane had developed this online course based around the workshop, which allowed me go through the process in my own time.

BluePrint online is set up in  8 easily digestible sections comprising 10 minute videos. In these Shane outlines the Blueprint process and you then fill in the workbook to put the learnings into action. Each section can be done in 30 minutes – ideal for people with busy schedules.

The videos capture Shane’s personable and humorous style, which makes the process of reflection and goal setting very enjoyable. They also have the added advantage that you can replay them, allowing you to pick up on some ideas you may have missed the first time and amend your plan accordingly.
I would strongly recommend the online course for people who can’t attend the one day Blueprint workshop and want to gain clarity and focus for the year ahead.

Declan Connolly, Brand Manager

brown-bag-films-logoWorking with Shane has made a huge difference to my professional and personal life. Shane provided me with a key to enabling a better version of myself along with a  new way of approaching my career. Since working with Shane, I have been promoted to a position I’ve always wanted, my team has won an international award and my time at work feels more rewarding and productive in new ways. 

Louise Nicholls, VP of Technology & Innovation, Brown Bag Films / 9 Story Media Group

I am hugely grateful to Shane for the positive changes in me and my life over the past 12 months.
I did Tony Robbins’s Unleash the Power Within two years ago and while I found it amazing, the benefits didn’t last.
I then did Shane’s Clarity Program and have to say that a full year later I’m still getting massive benefits from his course and from the tools he taught us.
I feel a lot more relaxed, much less reactive, my stress levels have reduced dramatically and
my focus, state of mind and clarity have all improved tremendously.
As a result of the Clarity Program I have come away happier, healthier, calmer, better organised and a lot more productive in all that I do.
I would encourage anyone who is feeling stressed, overwhelmed, under pressure or just in need of guidance and direction with their life to try one of Shane’s courses.
