Investing In professional development for your executive leadership helps retain and grow the talent in your company. These are the leaders of your brand, and they make a tangible impact on your company success.
Bring Your Challenges, Leave With Action Steps AND Community
The Hello Mastermind in-person events are designed to help Franchise Development Executives DISCONNECT with day-to-day tasks and RECONNECT to big-picture planning, solving challenges, and nurturing executive community.
The Mastermind Structure
Our structure is a combination of networking, roundtable discussions, and bringing challenges to solve and workshop with your peers. We choose a theme for each event that focuses our conversations for the roundtables and workshops.
Locations & Experiences
We choose locations & activities that allow for disconnection from daily tasks, and reconnection to the bigger issues and action steps that need to be made in your role.
Collaboration & Community
We spend a lot of the Masterminds doing deep work and workshops, but a lot of the action steps and value you leave with is from the conversations during dinners, activities, and organic connection with your peers.
Event Pricing & Access
All-Access members have registration, meals, and activities included in their annual cost. For non-members, there are a limited number of tickets available for purchase separately. Hotel and travel are not included.
