Introducing your teachers for The Brand Stylist Retreat

With the very first Brand Stylist Retreat taking place in a little under two months (May 22-25th) I thought it was about time I introduced you to some of your wonderful teachers. For those of you that don't know, the retreat is an all-inclusive, luxurious retreat for Creative Professionals designed to transform the way you do business. We'll be staying at Cal Reiet which is quite possibly the most breathtakingly beautiful hotel I have ever visited on the beautiful Spanish island of Majorca.


One of the most wonderful things about a retreat is that the magic happens the moment you decide to invest in yourself and your business. It's more than a series of intense workshops. It's about giving yourself the chance to rest, reflect and refine what you do. It's about the informal conversations you have with your teachers and your classmates at the bar or by the pool. It's about the connections you make - with both people and ideas. And the new perspectives you'll gain that'll truly impact on the way you do business moving forwards. It's going to be game-changing and I can't wait!

As well as plenty of input from yours truly (I'll be leading sessions each day), I've invited along some very, very special guests along to inspire you and offer you some new perspectives. Would you like to meet them?

Elizabeth Cairns

Elizabeth Cairns is just incredible. Inspirational, insightful and energising, Elizabeth will help you connect with what's really important to you and throw open the doors to possibility. She'll be joining us on the first day, to really gear us up for several transformative days and I can't wait!

I've worked with Elizabeth for years; as a coach, a mentor and more recently, as editor for my book, Brand Brilliance. She is just amazing and I know you are going to love her.

Elizabeth is wonderful at gently and very inspirationally putting you in touch with what really matters to you and she'll be organising a number of experiences that'll really set us up to get the most out of our time together. Expect plenty of lightbulb moments and spine tingles! Discover more at

Gudy Herder

Gudy Herderwill be known to many of you as an international trend-forecaster and for want of a better word, professional mood-boarder. Gudy creates some super-inspirational mood boards that are works of art in her own right and I've invited her to run a practical session with us to help us up our game.

Many of us use mood boards as a part of our creative process these days. They are wonderful tools to help you visualise what's in your mind, clarify your thinking and communicate effectively with your client and your team. But all too often we cop out with a digital version - and I include myself in this too!

Expect to be energised, inspired and to walk away with a whole new set of techniques that you can use in your creative practice to create more powerful visual prompts. Gudy will be walking us through exactly how to create a beautiful board - some structural and design approaches as well as some of the things you can do to make yours more effective.
