We can achieve more when we work together. Participants are deliberately curated to achieve a meaningful personal network for you. Our selection process ensures we have a blend of personalities, industries, experience levels, diversity and perspectives. Among our cohort are a variety of engaging individuals: accomplished business leaders looking to make an impact, nonprofit leaders with a dramatic vision for change, entrepreneurs planning new models for business growth, young community builders wanting to lead the future and artists inspiring creativity. Collaborative exercises and coaching are designed to catalyze strong connections over the weekend.

Wanting to create more meaningful engagements in your community?  Northern Pike provides the time, environment, tools and resources needed to fuel your inspiration. Work both individually and with other participant cohorts to refine your ideas.

Creators are prone to burnout and isolation that can stall progress. At Northern Pike, come together as builders and community enrichers for a collective break.

Look back to appreciate and learn from past accomplishments and challenges, and move forward with renewed excitement and passion for the future.
