start the year off right

You are the CEO. The Managing Director. The Boss. The Leader.

The one who is ultimately responsible for cash flow, that deadlines are hit, products are shipped on time and new contracts are being signed.

Your team and investors are expecting you to innovate, motivate, inspire and get ahead of the game, whilst keeping one eye on the competition.

You’re the one who has to make things happen.

the problem is…

Your company’s strategy meetings, annual company presentations and team away days are…mediocre, at best. Same old, same old.   Achieving the same old results.

You’re under pressure to keep them engaged and motivated, but you’re also juggling 10 different projects, 50 calls, 100 items on your to-do list and an inbox with 500 emails waiting for a response.

It’s time to shake things up.

We’ve got the answer.

your SME has grown, time to hire an events partner. contact us

The way we look at it, you have two options:


  • Waste your time and money, delegate this task to a PA, reserve the conference room, order some uninspiring sandwiches, tick a box and hope for the best
  • Go into the new year blind, reactive
  • Chase after clients and keep your fingers crossed that it’ll all work out okay
  • Continue to feel stressed, overwhelmed and like you can’t get a moment to stop, reflect and breathe
Nope, nope, nope.


  • Be proactive, plan an strategic retreat that not only empowers your team but also boost company culture, ensuring everyone is on the same page with the company’s goals, mission and vision
  • Map out stretch goals, refine your plan B and plan C by department
  • Create space and time for brainstorming new innovations, products and services
  • Be the hero you’ve always wanted to become
We can help you get there.  Schedule a 15-minute call to see if The Simplifiers are the right events partner for you and your firm.

Can we afford this?

  • short answer: YES. We work with a range of budgets and tailor our services to you. Can you afford the risk of NOT investing in your strategic planning for 2018?  Rates begin at £750 for Nottingham-based away days.

Do we really need this?

  • Well, you could have your PA pull together another impromptu meeting in the conference room.  Tick a box, order some sandwiches, done.
  • But is that really going to get the best out of your team? A boring conference room is not going to inspire innovative ideas and those sandwiches will put your team into a carb coma.
  • Invest in your team, reap the financial rewards.

How important is this?

  • One of the best decisions you’ll make this year. This is no ordinary meeting or away day.  You need something much better. Your company deserves something different to achieve superhero results.  To gain full team cohesion.  To not just survive in 2018, but to thrive and grow.

    Case Study: Aspen Heights


    Our client – an innovative developer and builder – wanted to plan an annual company retreat for their fast-growing, mostly millennial staff. Their aim was to finalise their annual strategic goals by department, train their teams on new in-house software and gain company-wide buy-in of their plan for the year ahead.


    The challenge was not only to bring together their entire company (14 different locations and various departments), but also how to empower a fairly young team and equip them with tools to handle the challenges that come with great success.


    • The Simplifiers developed the “The Shift” theme for their multi-day retreat, with focused workshops including “The Integral Leader”, “Preparing for Excellence in the Year Ahead” and “Becoming Uncommon.”
    • As their project manager, we managed all the details of producing this large-scale (100 person), multi-day event…from venue scouting to budgets to negotiating vendor contracts, event design and more. By trusting The Simplifiers to get the job done, their in-house staff saved hours of valuable working time.
    • Our local relationships helped keep costs down; The Simplifiers selected appropriate vendors and cost-effective products to design the event without blowing the budget.
    • Attention to detail is where we excel, matching the food menus carefully to the training programming delivered.  Heavy talks require light, healthy foods that kept their employees well-fed and alert for brainstorming sessions.
    • We incorporated an equal balance of hands-on training with strategic visioning exercises for their employees.  In addition, we provided a one-of-a-kind live event experience including horseback riding, golf, high ropes excursions and craft beer tasting to boost team bonding.


    • Client surpassed their annual revenue goals by 25% and expanded operations into four new markets.
    • Client hired an additional 20 staff as a result of expansion success.
    • Company culture continued to strengthen as employees and teams received recognition via awards program at retreat, striving to win year after year.


    We listened to our client’s needs, we delivered on their goals and objectives whilst keeping everything under budget.  We also planned the entire event in less than 6 weeks…

    The Simplifiers to the rescue!
