Express Your Voice Workshop and Mindful Team Building Events
The signals point to inclusion as the new paradigm, and the inclusive leader as someone who seeks out diverse perspectives to ensure that insights are profound and decisions robust
Our Express Your Voice workshops, leadership programmes and team building events is a mindful approach to equipping employees with the confidence to express their voices. It ensures everyone's voices are heard and leverages diversity's new frontier, diversity of thought. With it bringing about change from the inside out, it develops deeper relationships, increases employee engagement, supports organisations to eliminate groupthink and unleashes new levels of innovation.
Studies illustrate that sixty percent of employees are covering up who they are while at work. With employees not speaking up, dimming their light, playing small and feeling unable to express their unique perspectives and ideas, the workplace it seems, in line with recent engagement figures, is not always a happy place to be.

What we do
Our Express Your Voice programme is a mindful approach to getting employees to express their voices and to develop an inclusive and collaborative workplace. It supports organisations to leverage diversity of thought, increase employee engagement and unleash creativity. We achieve this through our unique Reboot process: Unplug, Discover, Unleash.
Unplug section: Uses an array of mindfulness techniques to minimise the uncomfortable feelings associated with being your authentic self and conventional unconscious bias awareness training.
Discover section: Includes mind-blowing talks and exercises for teams to bring their voices to the table, collaborate inclusively and eliminate groupthink, cited as being the responsible factor behind the collapse of UK bank, Northern Rock.
Unleash section: Participants are equipped with voice skills to articulate their unique ideas and perspectives compellingly, while leaders are also coached on how to motivate and inspire their teams to bring their voices to the fore.
These sessions also help organisations to protect their reputation through reducing the risk of employees transferring their unconscious biases into their work, such as in artificial intelligence. Available as either a taster in-house workshop, team building event or away day, our two-day programme is followed up by monthly team sessions to ensure learning is embedded. Participants emerge feeling more confident, curious and creative with a renewed enthusiasm for their work.

How it works
The Express Your Voice mindfulness advanced team building workshops and away day comprises of two areas:
- Meditative experiences
- Core programme
You will have a selection of meditative experiences to choose from with qualified practitioners such as mindfulness meditation, yoga by candlelight, journaling, urban sketching, breathing classes, drumming circles, urban pottery, connect to the heart of a horse and more. These experiences help to deal with the uncomfortable aspect of being your authentic self and becoming conscious of your unconscious biases. Instead of further divisions, our method increases empathy and cultivate deeper relationships.
The Freedom Fire is where participants dispose of the stereotypes and negative beliefs they hold about themselves and others to create an inclusive and collaborative workforce.
The Yoga Sisters
Our core programme, through workshops and inspirational talks, equips delegates with tools to create an inclusive culture; become self-aware, develop emotional intelligence, build resilience through growth mindset training and communicate across cultures. This is alongside tools to make a personal impact, motivate and inspire others.
Personal Development Sessions
Growth mindset training to build resilience
The Personal Development Coach, Change Agent and Diversity Trainer, Ingrid Marsh has been described by Google Campus as a fantastic public speaker. Her talk will empower teams to collaborate inclusively, build resilience and express their authentic self fully.
Food and Drinks
Nowhere is the interdependence of our physical, mental, emotional and environmental health better demonstrated than in our food. We aim to nourish on all of these levels, to the highest standards, from the warm and welcoming atmosphere of the family-style kitchen at the heart of the retreat and also where we host our workshops. At the retreat, everything is hand made from organic whole ingredients, mostly sourced within 20 miles of the centre from small scale, artisan growers and producers. We always use cold-pressed oils (or unrefined high smoke-point oils for cooking), Unrefined sea salt only and a 100% sugar free kitchen
Accommodation for two-day events
