REFINE WORKCATION 2022 - NASHVILLE

We're going on a Workcation where we will work hard AND play hard!

August 1-5, 2022

I'll cheers to that!

You’ve been to the conferences, you’ve done the workshops. You know all about classroom learning.

BUT HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED SOCIAL LEARNING?

 

In addition to classroom settings, we will also be activating our brains in a more restful way for social learning, where the real breakthroughs happen! 

 

Grab a drink (or not) and brainstorm some topics with me! Social learning takes conversation to another level. We may go to the pool, explore the city, or partake in one of the many group activities that Nashville has to offer.

 

It takes us to the practical, heart side of how to handle aspects of our professional and personal lives.

TAKE A LOOK AT OUR LAST

WORKCATION IN MEXICO!

Big thanks to Matt from Hospitality Butler for this fantastic TikTok, giving us a great look at our week together in the Riviera Maya.

 

SOME OF YOU ARE BURNED OUT. OTHERS OF YOU ARE LIT UP.

Either way, after a year or two of “who really knows what is happening” you're longing for some time away in a creative and inspirational environment, with wonderful humans and conversation that matters. 

YES, this is work. But it can’t feel like work. It has to also feed the soul.

We will work. We will play. We will rest. 

We will laugh, talk, make memories and learn the whole time - whether traditionally or socially.

 

I MEAN, HOW CUTE IS THIS?

 

ABOUT THE HOTEL

When I asked Refiners where we should stay in Nashville, literally every single answer I got was ... THE GRADUATE. And funny enough, I just visited a few months ago. I definitely saw Refine vibes while there.

It's colorful, bright, fun, and inspiring! The creativity in every detail is just what we love in a property. You can't turn a corner without an ode to Nashville's greatest artists!

Located near Vanderbilt, there is plenty to do in the area! But as a whole, Nashville is easy to get around and entertainment is endless!

ROOMS WITH PERSONALITY

Your ticket includes a standard King Room or a Double Queen. 

AUGUST 1-5, 2022

A time to gather to connect, grow and recharge! 

This IS a time to...

  • Recover, rest and relax
  • Work hard and learn from others
  • Ask questions and be vulnerable
  • Experience share and help others
  • Bond and enter my inner circle
  • Meet an accountability partner or form a mastermind
  • Be encouraged by people that understand your unique challenges 

This is NOT a time to...

  • Dominate conversation
  • Be a know it all
  • Check out or do your own thing
  • Rely on the others to do the work for you
  • Compare to other experiences 
  • Argue with or dismiss the opinions, feelings or experiences of others
  • Get overserved or over-party!

WHAT ARE WE LEARNING?

That's for you to decide! 


Once we have our final headcount, I will speak to each person about their needs! We'll customize the education from there. But here is a sample!

  • Design - trends, the process, the presentation
  • Leadership - time management, team building, expectations 
  • Hiring and Scaling / Expansion 
  • Working with Venues and Vendors
  • Pricing - profit, percentage model
  • Streamlining - tools and resources, project management, being efficient 

MEET YOUR LEADER

Hi! I'm Amber. Amber Anderson. The owner and face of Refine. But most importantly, I'm a product of Refine. I was raised up as a planner through Refine content, and had the pleasure of purchasing Refine in 2018!

  • 11 years in weddings and events
  • Co-Founder of Associated Wedding Planners of Austin
  • WIPA Member-At-Large
  • Wedding Industry Speaker Member
  • Published in PopSugar, Brides, Martha Stewart, Authority Magazine and more
  • Board Member of The Source Austin - a women's health care clinic
  • Wife, mom, volunteer 
  • And did I mention I love John Krasinski, Jay-Z, and Jesus?

I'm most known for saying what everyone else is thinking but not willing to say out loud. So coming to my retreats is full of truth! I don't do well with fluff or much woo woo. But I doooo foster warm environments that know how to read a room and tailor it to the needs of those present. Even if that means getting a little woo woo. I may have some sass, but empathy and kindness are expected in the company I keep.

INTIMATE HEADCOUNT

In addition to my team, I can host 14 Refiners, max! 

This headcount has been highly successful for Refine workations and workshops. It allows space for all to be seen and heard, growing and connecting.

It's really important to me that everyone - all backgrounds, ages, genders, orientations, and ethnicities feel welcome! These smaller groups make that so much easier to vet!

AIRPORT AND FLIGHT TIMING

The Graduate is 15 minutes from the Nashville International Airport, making for a quick and cheap Uber drive.

You may arrive anytime on Monday! I'd love to have a social day with anyone able to arrive in time to play! We will plan this as we get closer, but try to at least be settled and ready for dinner around 7pm.

OUR EDUCATION WILL TAKE PLACE AT THE VAULT AT MINT HOUSE

I'll cover the Ubers for this 10-minute ride! We want to get off the property and find a quiet space. Cough cough...one that doesn't have an $8k food a beverage minimum for lunch, keeping your ticket costs down!

ACTIVITIES AND ENTERTAINMENT

Nashville is known for:

  • Art
  • Food
  • Dancing 
  • Nightlife 

We'll lounge, mosey around, and hit the town! 

The hotel obviously has the pool, but Nashville has endless opportunities.

THIS ISN'T FOR EVERYONE

I’m looking for committed, responsible and fun Refiners that can put in some elbow grease between letting loose. 

You’re invited to apply if...

  • You are committed to taking our time seriously.
  • Will put in the work ahead of time, during, and after.
  • Are able to respect the investment each person is making to attend by not dominating conversation, making things about you at all times, or taking the drinks too far. 
That's me! I'd love to come.

AS EVENT PLANNERS, YOU UNDERSTAND THE COST OF BUILDING OUT EVENTS LIKE THIS.

I'm really proud of the pricing we were able to secure for this!

Hotels have a lot of red tape! But I'll cover your breakfasts, lunches, one dinner out and your Ubers to and from the hotel and conference room! 

Join me and 13 other Refiners for an opportunity of a lifetime!
