How do you lead your team, grow your business, and change the world, without losing yourself along the way?

Business Inside Out is an annually convened retreat designed specifically for entrepreneurs like you. Hosted by Junxion’s President & CEO, Mike Rowlands, this program will show you a fresh, bold approach to ‘the practise of entrepreneurship.’

“I’ve never learned, laughed, and connected so well with others in such a short period of time.” — 2018 Participant

The most effective entrepreneurs—those who manage to grow businesses from startup to significant scale—maintain an unwavering focus on a purpose beyond profit, while continually learning and adapting to a company that evolves as if taking on a life of its own. This all takes effort and discipline. It is both intensely exhilarating and profoundly exhausting.

If you’re working to build a company that delivers on a social mission, you know it’s a never-ending cycle of personal renewal that takes deep resilience, discipline, and effort. Business Inside Out is for entrepreneurs that need the time and space to reframe their goals and challenges, refresh their leadership style, and reflect on their strategy.

Join us this May to renew your sense of purpose in life and reconnect it with your work in the world.

If any or a few of these statements apply to you, you’ll certainly benefit from Business Inside Out:

You are a leader in a social impact or technology company with a team of two or more

The current way you’re approaching growth is not working

You are stuck in the cycle of the day-to-day

You care about your people… and don’t have enough time to support them

You need to catch your breath and get clear on where you want to go

You struggle to make time for yourself and self-care

You want new approaches to advance your business and increase your impact

Inspired by the land at Hollyhock, Business Inside Out will connect you to liberating new ways to define success, and equip you with tools, practices, and connections to help you reach new levels of performance—personally and professionally.

At the end of the retreat, you will have:

A human-centred approach to entrepreneurial growth

A 10-year vision for your life and your business

A clear scorecard to activate your vision

Mindful strategies to be resilient

Tools to create a culture of regenerative leadership

A peer coach to hold you accountable and support shared success

Find a sustainable way to thrive as you scale your impact, grow your business, and fulfill your own, personal potential.

What’s Included?

Four days of rich facilitation and learning

Innovative business tools to advance your leadership and your growth

Case studies focused on new solutions to your real and current challenges

Guided meditations and visualizations to transcend your limitations and step into possibility

One-on-one and group coaching

Rich conversations with new and old friends who understand where you are and where you want to go

Time by the ocean, rest, and walks in the woods

Hollyhock definitely captured my heart. The food is wonderfully balanced and full of flavour. The garden is mesmerizing and the staff is always welcoming with a smile. Accommodation was comfortable and clean. There is something enchanting about this place that is calling me back ~ Monica G


Venue Highlights

Hollyhock sits on the traditional territories of the Klahoose, Tla’amin, Homalco Nations. We are committed to renewing our relationships with the First Nations peoples on whose territories we are guests.

On this foundation of gathering, pioneering and learning, Hollyhock’s founders dreamed of creating a lifelong learning and leadership curriculum to inspire, nourish and support people intent on service to a better world.

Hollyhock became a not-for-profit in 2006 to strengthen carrying out our mission into the future. With your help we can keep this as a thriving centre for skill-building, lifelong learning and stewardship of the natural world, inspiring, nourishing and supporting people making the world better for another 30+ years.
