As a CEO, do you want something more but don't know where to start? 

 

Join us for a Beyond Zero CEO Retreat where we'll help you bring a meaningful vision for your company from concept to reality. 

Join Beyond Zero Writer and Director Nathan Havey,

accompanied by world-class trainers, for a transformational experience unlike any other.

You'll leave the retreat ready to take the first steps to successfully implement your purposeful vision — feeling ready to change your business, and life, for good.  

Next Retreat: February 15 - 17, 2023

February Retreat Guest Speaker

Mike McFall, Co-founder & Co-CEO, Biggby Coffee

Mike is the co-CEO of BIGGBY COFFEE, a $100-million-dollar coffee franchise with 250+ locations across the Midwest, and is author of Grind: A No Bullshit Approach to Take Your Business From Concept to Cashflow. 

Since 2015, with the help of your retreat guide Nathan Havey, Biggby Coffee has been on a purpose journey inspired by Mike and his co-founder Bob's vision to transform their company into a place where all team members could live a life they love. You can read about their journey in Conscious Company Magazine (whose co-founder, Meghan, will also be one of your Retreat guides).  

Mike will detail the inside story, including the good, the bad, and the ugly, of how he helped transition an established company toward purpose and how it changed his life for good. 

Why You Should Join Us


 

We’re in a rare moment in history

Businesses have become some of the most trusted and most powerful institutions in the world.

As a leader, you can either move forward with a clear vision that adds value to the world or shy away from this opportunity.

The world needs YOU to step up and build a company that matters.

But how?

Join an intimate group of CEOs to: 

  • Develop or stress test your company's higher purpose
  • Understand how your purpose benefits your performance
  • Learn a powerful template for making this change
  • Create an implementation plan for your company
  • Belong in a community of CEOs building companies that matter

"We worked with Nathan and the Interface case to help us find our purpose. It became a profound turning point not just for our company, but what I uncovered through the process personally has changed my life. 

If you are considering this retreat, stop considering and register."

~ Bob Fish, Co-CEO, Biggby Coffee

An Experience Designed To Transform Your Life


 

Take a pause from the daily grind to become a better leader

Your organization's success depends on you doing the work that will take you to the next level. Join us to: 

  • Work on your business rather than in your business
  • Learn from seasoned practitioners who will enhance your leadership capacities 
  • Get access to business leaders who've transformed their organizations 
  • Meet other CEOs who are on a similar journey 
  • Build a compelling new vision for your organization

 

"The challenge now for leaders is not can you do it, the question is are you willing?"

~ Mona Amadeo, from the film Beyond Zero

Who Is This Program For?

A CEO who: 

  • Is serious about making an impact on the world beyond making money, but doesn't quite know where to start.
  • Doesn't quite feel satisfied with the trajectory of their business and wants something that inspires them and their team to work on every day. 
  • Cares about leaving a legacy through their leadership and wants to meet others who feel the same.

The Retreat Experience


 

Day 1: Interface Visit*

We'll take you on an exclusive visit to Interface headquarters to meet with executives from the company to learn and be inspired by the company's incredible transition. 

*All Interface team members are guests of the retreat and are not providing course content, nor is Interface receiving financial benefit as a result of participation  


 

Day 2: Clarify Your Higher Purpose

You’ll travel to the idyllic community of Serenbe just outside of Atlanta where you’ll meet with other seasoned CEOs to hear about their journey and work with some of the top leadership consultants in the world to discover or confirm your higher purpose and see how you can bake it into the core of your company’s strategy.


 

Day 3: Make Your Plan

You’ll use the Interface case to anticipate your key next steps, build a coalition to support you, and plan the support resources you’ll need to build a company that really matters.  When you leave, you’ll be a part of an inspired community of fellow CEOs for the first critical months as you put your plan into action and beyond.


 

Feb. 20 - April 7, 2023: Integration

Following the in-person retreat, you'll be guided through a  virtual integration period, including group time with the other retreat attendees and with private sessions with the retreat facilitators. It's one thing to set a vision — it's another to be in a supportive community of peers and expert guides who will help you take your first steps toward building a company that matters.
