The Thrive Experience

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
