WHAT IS STEP AWAY!

Have you ever thought of what it would be like to immerse yourself in a like-minded group focused on innovation, creativity, and design?

Have you wanted to shut out the noise and step away from the demands of the real world just to think through your business problems?

 

You will have a chance to learn the creative process including deep conversations, hands-on exercises, and learn what it means to create and innovate in an atmosphere that is conducive to learning, thinking, and playing.
