SPARK 2018 has ended

Stay tuned for information about SPARK 2019

And gain access to more depth, capacity, energy and inner fire than you’ve ever experienced before

We thoughtfully designed SPARK as a rare opportunity for you to step away from your routine responsibilities, and into nature, to find a new reservoir of energy and insight that is absolutely there for you and capable of supporting you in all facets of your life, (once you stop trying to access it from the wrong place.)

During this time, you’ll discover meaningful, yet simple shifts you can implement to create the relief and the expanded capacity you’re seeking.

Make no mistake . . . sparks will fly!

When you join us at SPARK you will:

  • Co-create a personalized map that outlines where to focus your time, energy and resources after the retreat is over – so you’ll go further, faster and enjoy yourself a whole lot more too!
  • Get even more connected to what lights you up inside – and learn how to tap into that as the source of your authentic power.
  • Remove layers of accumulated stress and connect more deeply to yourself – through guided meditation.
  • Nurture your body, mind and spirit – with twice-daily, gentle yoga sessions and delicious meals prepared with locally grown foods.
  • Optimize your digestion of food as fuel – with personalized design of a nutrition plan.
  • Make meaningful connections with other strong, inspired leaders – and have some amazing fun, too!

Meet Your Hosts

GG Johnston

GG is more than a business coach and more than a consultant. She’s a strategic thinking partner and adviser to business leaders who want to outperform their historical growth and create a clear competitive advantage. Using a combination of tools, GG works with select partners to help decision makers regain a sense of company purpose and infuse that purpose into practice, across the organization.

As past President and CEO of one of Denver’s premier public relations firms, GG spent years running a business and serving as a trusted adviser to business leaders across many industries.  For more than 15 years, she saw large and small companies invest significant resources in marketing and communications campaigns; some netted impressive results while others failed. She recognized the difference being, organizations with clear strategy, and people aligned with and mobilized around the strategy, succeed by leaps and bounds.  That’s when she launched her consulting business, Downstream Partners.

Part mentor, part therapist, and part chairman of the board, GG stands shoulder-to-shoulder with clients, working inside the business to create clarity, accountability and alignment to strategy, while fostering culture and staff development.  With her involved, clients get the maximum return on investment in staff, customers and partners.
