First & foremost, this retreat is about building your business – connecting & collaborating with like-minded Entrepreneurs & developing new skills. As for the mountain biking… we’d argue that it’s an essential part of the development process. Kind of like an icebreaker where you’ve gotta wear a party hat & hold hands to get in the right frame of mind – just a bunch more fun - clarify it with a good accountant!
