2021/22 Retreat Series

We still have plans to conduct another round of the Gattorna Alignment Executive Retreats, focusing on SC ‘thought leadership’ ideas. The schedule for this year has been heavily disrupted by Covid, so our Australian events have been pushed back to Q1/Q2, 2021 and the Asia and European events to late-2021. The US will likely be rescheduled to Q4, 2021 or if necessary Q1, 2022; and the dates for South Africa are still under review, but most likely early 2022.

For all those  colleagues who have already confirmed that they will be joining us at the various locations, we will be keeping the momentum going and staying  in touch with online catch-ups so that we can share our experiences as we all face new challenges along the way. This will take the form of a series of Think Tanks on specific topics, delivered  via Zoom on a complimentary basis. More details on these events  to follow.

During this time, we are also working on content that will help us all to interpret and learn from the current extreme  situation, and to strengthen the immunity of our operations against future shocks, which will surely come-we just don’t know exactly when!.

Our 2020/21 cohort are welcome to contact us at any stage, via email or LinkedIN, and we look forward to eventually being able to get-together in the same room.

If you are interested in receiving an invitation to any of the above events, please contact  Dr John Gattorna or Ms Deborah Ellis.
