Where Do You Start…?

The world has been turned upside over the past couple of years with the Covid – 19 pandemic. And perhaps it has never been more important to make time for yourself as a leader. To reset, recharge and renew.

Especially in the company of like minded, experienced peers.

This event is genuinely limited in numbers so if you are interested, I’d advise to submit an application by clicking the relevant link below.

We have a great group of business owners, CEOs and experienced leaders coming together, from a very wide range of industries. It’s shaping up to be a lot of fun and it will be a great way to Reset, Recharge and Re-Align for the rest of the year.

As you know it’s often lonely being a senior leader or business owner and not everyone can relate to it. Throw in the uncertainty we have now and it’s challenging.

There has never been more opportunity around us right now. This unique 3 day experience allows you to be around people who really understand the challenges you have but can also help with grabbing the opportunities – and have a lot of fun at the same time.

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 recommend part-taking in Thrive if you need to get your mojo back!

Tracey Moran, Director, Moran Red Cow Hotel Group

The Thrive Experience allowed me to take time out of my busy life to reflect, appreciate and plan for making the most of all aspects of my life. The space Shane created and activities we engaged in, allowed me to invest quality time in myself which is a rare gift.

Karen Morton, Marketing Advisor/Non-Exec.Director/Kilakee Christmas Farms

Do this only if you have the courage to move out of your comfort zone. Within minutes of arriving I knew I had met my tribe. Thrive 2021 had everything right. The event was mixed with a healthy dose of vulnerability, practical talk, good physical and mental exercise and great fun.

John Riordan, Chairman of Shopify International

Thrive provided precious time out for experienced leaders. It gives you the chance to sit back and reflect – a true gift to oneself. Plus you get to connect with a great group of diverse but remarkably alike people.

Carmel Owens, CEO, Sidero
