October 25-28th, 2022 - FULL

Hudson Valley, NY

At the peak of East Coast fall foliage escape to the charming grounds of a historic estate tucked into the Hudson Valley in upstate New York.  We’ll take a deep dive into business strategy, Hot Seats, skill sharing, holistic wellness, delicious meals, and connection with the guidance of our leadership team: Jill Dempsey of VUE Corp,  Mimi Chan of Littlefund, and leadership + empowerment coach Ali Dunn. Facilitation by The Huddle founder Liz Stanley and The Huddle’s community manager Kristin Cantu.

ABOUT THE RETREAT

The Huddle gives women the space and mentorship to take their business to the next level combined with the intimacy and pampering of your very best, well deserved, girlfriend retreat. Real-life support networks are focused around business strategy and continue beyond the three-day retreat.

Unlike other retreats, we keep it small and all inclusive in a private, beautiful venue—with no more than 15 women attending. By curating the right group along with a seasoned entrepreneur, mentors, and professional coaches, we match attendees’ skills with the skills they need, while remaining intimate and focused for every woman attending.

The Huddle has four main components: Skillshares, Hot Seat peer mentoring sessions, coaching, and self care activities. Each day the retreat strikes a balance between these four components. Skillshares help each attendee share their professional expertise with the group. Hot seat peer mentoring harnesses the collective brilliance of the group with the help of a seasoned entrepreneur and mentors to knowledge share, and brainstorm solutions to business challenges.

Group and private leadership coaching help create a personalized path for the holistic health of you and your business. Wellness and self care are woven throughout each day.

Activities like private yoga, meditation, hiking, massages, poolside relaxation, and delicious catered style meals occur in the intimacy of a private setting.

Curious what The Huddle is like from our Alumni? Check out some testimonials here

The Huddle was the single best thing I’ve done for my business (and myself) in forever- I came back gunning for more and more centered than ever. Do it. You won’t regret it. “

— Colleen Janke, Savory Kitchen

The Huddle was truly the most impactful business retreat / conference / seminar I have ever been a part of. I left the weekend with a clear vision for my business and feeling empowered like never before to grow it to achieve my goals. Perhaps what was most unexpected was how much I was able to grow personally, identifying limiting beliefs through the help of others and knowing how to grow beyond them.

— Jen Pinkston, La Paloma Sleep

The Huddle was an incredible experience! Not only did it give me invaluable insight into scaling my two companies, it provided a network of executive women willing to lift me up with resources and references needed to grow exponentially. It was holistic in its approach to balancing my businesses health and mine as well. I highly recommend attending.

Huddle Retreat FAQ

Female founders, business owners and entrepreneurs who believe in collaboration over competition, that the health of a business is intrinsically connected to the mindset and health of its founder, and are ready for opened spreadsheets, open minds, and real individual business support and feedback. We curate groups of diverse and ambitious women who are looking to objectively examine their own business while addressing the holistic needs they have, and help others to do the same.

While we know The Huddle can be an incredible experience for all female entrepreneurs, we've found that those in the growth and scaling phase (over 500k in annual revenue) have found it the most beneficial. There's a lot of support in the form of conferences, business 101 resources, online programs, etc for women just starting their business, but those opportunities tend to dwindle as businesses grow and scale. This is especially true for female entrepreneurs compared to male counterparts. If you're just starting a business, we're happy to share our favorite conferences and business resources, or you can book a 1:1 session with our Huddle Select team of coaches and specialists (bios above). We'll also be launching a virtual Huddle membership club in fall of 2021 that could be a great fit as well to get ongoing monthly support. We can't wait for you to attend a Huddle when you're growing and scaling your business!

The magic in The Huddle is the curated intimacy. That's why we keep these retreats small. Unfortunately because of our group size, we can't accept everyone that applies. It's crucial to curate the right group of women with a diverse background and experience, while also matching skills and needs. That being said, we REALLY want everyone to be able to experience a Huddle retreat because we've seen just how transformative it can be. If we can't offer you a spot in The Huddle you're applying for but we think you'd be a great fit, we'll add you to a priority list for future events. In the meantime, we're happy to recommend other resources and support networks to get you the help you're looking for.

It's different at every event, but here's a picture of how a typical day might play out: You wake up to a private yoga + meditation session at the gorgeous home (feel like sleeping in? no judgement!). Followed by a delicious family style breakfast. Next up, a Skillshare around a business topic (maybe SEO? maybe working with investors? marketing funnels?). Then a hot seat peer mentoring session where focus our energy on helping one woman's business guided by seasoned mentors. In these personalized sessions, we explore business strategy, direction, or whatever help and knowledge is most needed for that woman. Next, a break for free time. Sitting by the pool, journaling. Both a private massage therapist and a life coach offer private sessions during the free time. Lunch by the pool is followed by more hot seat and Skillshare sessions. After an afternoon hike, a workshop is led by our life coach. More massages and private coach sessions. A cooking lesson Skillshare is taught while enjoying cocktails and appetizers on the outdoor patio; followed by dinner and conversation continuing until late. A fun and introspective evening activity like a Sound Bath or Tarot Card Reading. Lights out. Repeat!

While we truly believe peer-based support is a critical piece of our Huddle experience, our mentors and coaches also play a pivotal role. The mentors attend Hot Seats (individual sessions dedicated to your business) to offer high level guidance, resources, and direction without shying away from asking the hard questions. Get ready to open those spreadsheets, this is your chance to get some real and honest feedback on your business! Our coaches offer individual sessions at The Huddle to each attendee helping you to identify ways to improve your entrepreneur mindset and getting 'unstuck'. They also host a group leadership and mindset workshop, and a closing workshop to process and move forward after The Huddle. All our coaches and mentors are there to support and connect with you throughout the retreat, and we very carefully choose mentors and coaches that are exceptional in their craft, experience, wisdom, support, and in alignment with The Huddle's mission and values.

Huddles are intentionally intimate and always located in a beautiful home and/or private boutique hotel in a retreat-worthy location. Think the best girls weekend coupled with some serious business strategy and connection. Shared and private rooms are usually available depending on the venue. Tiered pricing will apply for private or shared rooms and availability is limited.

We strongly believe in the inclusion of ALL women and acknowledge that women of color in particular haven't been given equal access to business support and resources. Because of this, we'll be offering one half scholarship per retreat with priority given to women of color, or from another marginalized group. We're also donating a percentage of the profits from each Huddle retreat to New Voices Fund, a foundation supporting funding for women of color entrepreneurs.

We take COVID safety very seriously and are requiring a proof of vaccination to attend our events, and/or proof of a negative COVID test within 48 hours of the event. We also follow closely the venue's county and state guidelines/restrictions to be sure we're in compliance.

If something comes up and you aren't able to attend, unfortunately we cannot offer a refund, but you can transfer your spot to a future Huddle within 18 months if you notify us at least three weeks before the event, and on the condition that we can fill your spot. Transfer of spots to another applicant could be available on a case by case basis as we are very careful to curate the right group of experience and expertise.
