Thursday, September 1, 2011 Corporate Retreat & Strategic Planning Session

Thanks to Q2ebanking for holding their 2011 corporate retreat at our hill country bed and breakfast. The management team seemed to have a great time and we received numerous comments on how much they enjoyed the food & service and that they were able to accomplish more that they anticipated. Q2ebanking is based out of Austin, TX and offers electronic banking services for financial institutions.

The retreat was lead by David Peterson of i7strategies out of Hahira, GA. David decided to convert our dining room to hold the strategic planning sessions. From the photo above you can see a u-shaped table arrangement was used and it worked very well for the group of 14. The library which is normally used for meetings was used for breakout sessions.

What's one way to make sure you have the group's attention when holding a group meeting? Hold attendee's cell phone's hostage! David would collect cell phones during meeting time and release them during breaks and finally after the day's activities had ended. None of the guys seemed to mind and they all had great things to say about David's strategic planning skills.

  1. Hey, just a quick shout out to all of the staff at Inn Above Onion Creek! The Inn provided the perfect blend of all of the tools needed for a corporate meeting combined with a down home, casual atmosphere where we felt like "family". Plus, we were their sole focus for the days we were there.

    Special thanks to Amy who went "over and above" the call to accomodate some special requests. If you are a meeting planner or looking for a location for your next corporate, I highly recommend Inn Above Onion Creek. I am already looking forward to my next visit ...

    ... and yes, I actually do take up all of the mobiles devices or anything that would distract the attendees and that includes mine!
