Retreats to Reflect, Recharge and Refocus
Prepare to make impactful changes in your life and work
Take time away from the chaos and pressures of life and work to focus on you
Join me at my next retreat where you can spend time with peers to:
- Reflect on the real you. An opportunity to gain a greater awareness of yourself, slow down and take your foot off the pedal. A quiet space to think about what’s working and what you need right now.
- Recharge your mind and body. Give yourself permission to break the urgency cycle of constantly acting and reacting. Gain fresh perspectives from your peers, and boost your positivity and energy.
- Refocus on what’s important. Invest your time and energy towards doing more of what works for you. Align your priorities, action plan your next steps, and regain your inner confidence.
It's time to put yourself first!
These retreats are designed for those who are working at 100 mph, especially (but not exclusive to) business owners and those in leadership roles such as: Chief Executives, Executive Directors, Directors, Head teachers, Heads of Service, Senior Managers, Business Owners, Councillors and Clinicians.
They are an opportunity to meet peers from different sectors, so you can learn, share and make new connections. I’ll guide you through the day with self-discovery activities, engaging conversations and facilitated topics.
Following the success of recent retreats, there will be more in 2020:
July 2020 – date and venue to be confirmed
October 2020 – date and venue to be confirmed
If you’re in need of some time away from the chaos and pressures of work, and ready to invest in yourself, then these retreats are for you.

Andrea Goodridge is a qualified coach and leadership development consultant.
She set up Ad Florem in October 2015 when she made the decision to only do activities that energised her or where she could add value.
Basically, if she’s not going to feel it, and be energised by it, she won’t perform at her best! She encourages her clients to do the same for themselves.
Once you stop ‘going through the motions’ and start focusing on results you value, you’ll engage with your work and get better results.
It starts with you!
Her 20 years’ experience of supporting leaders and business owners has proven this, and is based on taking time out to reflect, recharge and refocus on you.
Many of Andrea’s clients are looking to regain their confidence to live their ‘real self’ and shake off their ‘pretend self.’
She also has a popular blog where she shares practical tips and tactics on self-leadership, has featured in various publications and podcasts, and won Best Leadership Development Consultancy 2019 in the Northern Enterprise Awards.
