“I had been looking forward to this cruise for more than a year and a half. You might think that so much anticipation could have led to disappointment but it was  GREAT!

Cruising is a great experience, combining cruising with an unknown group of entrepreneurs and with Esther’s workshops, makes it very special. The dynamics of the group were fantastic, the workshops were very instructive, incredible friendships and collaborations that arose, we had fun together, giving each other support and feedback about each other’s business ideas. Wow, what an experience to become so close to a group of previously unknown people

Highlights: being offline and really connecting with each other. It is so rare in this fast digital world, but on the ship far away from civilisation, especially the 5 days crossing the ocean, miracles happen. Excursions such as the lunar landscape of Lanzarote, the favelas in Rio de Janeiro on the back of the motorscooter, both with very competent and special private guides.
The workshops included practical content that is directly applicable information.  Esther understands and shares all her experiences and knowledge with the group in more than 8 workshops. There is plenty of space to ask questions and exchange experiences. What is special is that you also get your own RESULTant session with Esther where she finds effortlessly finds your blind spots with her sharp mind and then brings you to new insights. That is where her strength lies.

The inspiration you gain has much more effect than a mere afternoon or a two-day workshop or course. The whole journey gives you a sense of freedom, seeing everything as a (business) possibility, fully in connection with the group. I would like to recommend this to everyone at least every 2 years. Why: when you get out of your own patterns, things are different than you think and that is sometimes very necessary. We have all grown and have nice friendships and piles of new ideas and business plans. “- Mirande Voskuylen about Barcelona – Buenos Aires 2018
