Our taster takes place in a grand Grade II* listed Georgian mansion house which is owned and managed by Borough of Poole Council. We will enjoy the wildlife along the shoreline, take in stunning harbour views and wander through beautiful gardens displaying a range of fantastic horticulture.
Date: 03rd June 2019
In 2018 we ran our first taster event at this beautiful location to help people understand how being outdoors, unplugging from your phone and connecting with like-minded peers from your own line of work can have real benefits. You’ll have the time and space to quiet your mind and switch off the day-to-day ‘noise’ of life. This will help you to see things differently and focus on solving an issue you bring with you. Getting to know your fellow attendees and working together to support each other, you’ll get a real feel for what our kind of ‘unplugging’ is all about.
