Leading Through Uncertainty

A Note From Shane:

This year is the first time I am opening up this unique 3 day event to senior executives, based on suggestions from previous participants who believe their key people would get a huge amount from this time.

Taking time out to really think strategically about your work, leadership and life has never been more important and that is what The Thrive Experience allows you to do.

There are a limited number of spaces for this event, the only one for executives.

Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with experienced and like-minded leaders from a very wide range of industries. This event is always a lot of fun and always thought provoking.

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 and not everyone can relate to it. Throw in the uncertainty we have now and it’s challenging. The bad news is that this will continue after the pandemic but the good news is that there is plenty of support to help you navigate through it better.

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. 

When and Where?

The Thrive XP – Executive Edition 2022 runs from Sunday afternoon 22nd May to Tuesday afternoon 24th May 2022.

The venue this year will be The Four Seasons Hotel in the beautiful village of Carlingford, Co.Louth.

Over 2 nights and 2.5 days you will have time out to reflect on your journey, learn new insights to help you professionally and personally. It’s high impact and highly enjoyable.

What Previous Attendees Say

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!

John Riordan, Director Of Support, Shopify Ireland

“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

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

“Go with an open mind and trust the process.”

Susan Keating, HR Director, Teneo Ireland

I absolutely loved the Thrive Experience and would highly recommend. A great blend of business and personal wellbeing. The experience helped reconnect with myself, refocus on my short and long term goals, what’s important in my life and mapping out how i’m getting there. I walked away feeling totally energized and inspired!

Tara Kearns, Group HR Director, Clanwillian Group

Thrive is a fantastic Mind Body & Soul, yet also fully business event. I left feeling inspired, charged and with a clear view of what my next steps were. Amazing experience!!
