Group Gatherings (Click here for Events Schedule)
Your participation in Group activities is one of the most important reasons for being "connected". This is the opportunity for you to take part in a number of meeting, workshops, training sessions, tours and corporate retreats, all designed to provide you with the information you need to help you reach both your business and personal goals. And to accomplish that task means there are times to mix business and pleasure. We believe that your business is the catalyst for what you do in life. Spend some time with us during a Workshop at one of our Group centers or a Summer Escape in Mexico and you'll see what we mean.

Group Gathering in Playa Del Carmen Mexico July 2005

As 13 participants gathered in Playa Del Carmen for our annual Summer Group Gathering we practiced our team building skills when we had a surprise visit from Hurricane Emily Category 4. With guidance from our local Mexican friends we prepared for 2 days prior... shopping for canned goods, bottled water and candles, cooking anything that would not need refrigeration, taping and boarding windows and recalling all the camping trips we've taken in a past life.. WE SURVIVED EMILY!

Don & Linda Woods from Stonehedge Garden Center stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables.

Business at the local grocery store was a bit frenzied as everyone horded nonperishables. All the baggers work for tips only.

We head to dinner to discuss our disaster plan, happy but not sure what to expect
at midnight when Emily
is expected to come ashore.

Communications towers destroyed by Emily

Home of our afternoon meetings is out of business for only a few days.

As things get back to normal we enjoy the beachfront view.
