'Have your cake and sell it too' implementation retreat
30 November – 2 December, Noosa
Build your dream business
World Class Presenters
days of great content
key ingredients of business success
hands-on breakout sessions to build your 12 month implementation plan
Join Jason Cunningham and friends for an intensive implementation retreat in the idyllic surrounds of Noosa. Escape the never-ending demands of your business to give yourself the headspace to develop a clear action plan for the next 12 months - guided by world-class experts.
Jason will use the 7 key ingredients of business success from his latest book, Have your cake and sell it too, to help you address the critical areas in which every business owner - regardless of size or stage - needs to take action.
Jason has secured three other world-class presenters who have all helped him to build his business, so he can personally vouch for their skills and content.
Presentations will be followed by breakout sessions so you can build your implementation plan straight away, supported by your fellow business owners, key Practice team members, and of course Jason and the other presenters.
Spaces are strictly limited to 40 people to keep the vibe intimate, and to ensure Jason can spend quality time with each attendee.
Who's it for?
Any business owners that:
- Understand the benefits of getting away from their business to ensure they're taking action in the most critical areas... but can never find the time (because they're too busy 'doing stuff').
- Know that spending time with world-class experts and getting practical, hands-on guidance can exponentially increase their achievement.
- Get inspired by spending time with like-minded business owners who are supportive, encouraging, and determined to succeed.
Why should I attend?
You know that you need to get away from your business if you want to look at it with fresh eyes and an open mind. Why not head to one of the most beautiful places on the planet? And why not get the experience, insights and inspiration of the country's premier small business growth expert, as well as 3 other world-class experts?
Join Jason Cunningham (from Channel 10's The Living Room and SEN1116's The Run Home, and founder of business advisory firm The Practice) as he shares the business fundamentals that will transform your business and help you achieve your version of success.
Walk away with a 1-page action plan that you can implement over the next 12 months.

What will be covered during the event?
The structure of the event follows Jason's 7 key ingredients of business success from his latest book Have your cake and sell it too:
'Have your cake and sell it too' is not about selling your business; it's about building a business that others are clamouring to buy off you... until you're ready to sell, you'll enjoy the financial and lifestyle fruits of a business that you'll want to hang onto for a long time to come.
The key to strategy is having a ‘sell’ mindset, and understanding the importance of ongoing strategic planning.
Understand your business:
This centres around three critical (but undervalued) components of your business' success: your mission statement, your core values and your why. These are the foundations on which you can build a successful and valuable business.
Learn how to attract more of your ideal prospects through marketing, and convert them to customers through an effective sales process. Learn to look at your business through your customers' eyes so you provide an exceptional customer experience.
Having the right structure is vital in order to maximise your returns, as is getting the right data and knowing what to do with it (your business dashboard and management reporting processes are key).
Maintain the delicate balance between strategy and operation; harness the true potential of your people by developing a great culture, and providing rock-solid processes for them to follow.
Build a self-sufficient business that doesn’t rely on you, and separate yourself from your business so it supports your lifestyle (not the other way around).
Understand and apply the critical steps which bridge the gap between your current and desired sale price. Know the factors that drive business value, and have an exit strategy that identifies who your potential buyers are, so you can make changes to ensure your business is as attractive to them as possible.
What will I get out of it?
- Set up the next 12 months so you take massive action in the critical areas for your business (and identify the ‘time vampire’ areas that are draining and constraining you)
- Make connections with positive, driven, like-minded business owners just like you that are all striving to build better businesses – share war stories, get things off your chest, and be heard by people who understand your challenges, fears and frustrations
- Walk away with your 12 month action plan to implement the key strategies of Jason's latest book Have your cake and sell it too
- Start to enjoy the financial and lifestyle flexibility rewards you went into business for in the first place
- Take action to grow the value and attractiveness of your business asset so you get a bigger cheque when you one day choose to sell it
But don't take our word for it...
Check out these testimonials from a previous business retreat:
"I’d like to thank Jason and the team for being such an inspiring group of professionals – that also made it possible for us to learn, discuss, complain and celebrate with an amazing group! Knowing that we have common problems and challenges (despite how successful we are) was so encouraging."
– Amanda Skates, KISS Consulting, NSW
"Brilliant group of people, great networking and sharing of experiences. Very interactive, hands-on and practical. Jason’s content was great… I had some real light bulb moments such as how to package different services. Brilliant event, well done to all involved."
– Ange Connor, Inspire HQ, VIC
"Great mix of businesses and business owners – different thoughts and solutions to problems. Pulled me out of working in the business so I could work on the business again. Made us realise how important focused strategy sessions are for us to move forward and grow."
- Wes Allen, Futuristically Lucrative Sales & Coaching International, QLD
"Great opportunity to pick Jason’s brain, and meet a group of exceptional business people who contributed to each other so well… and will create a future ‘think tank’. Loved socialising with Jason and the other participants – building lifelong (and life-changing!) friendships!"
– Antonella Sanderson, Family Law Matters, NSW
"Thank you so much for this opportunity! It really was a fantastic group of people. I didn’t expect to have a voice and for the first time, in a long time, I felt comfortable enough to do that. And I certainly didn’t expect to potentially see the birth of a new business!! Again THANK YOU, and thanks to the team for all the work done."
– Caroline Ryan, Hirestyle, VIC
“Invaluable group knowledge-sharing of ideas and hearing the journey of others. Jason’s passion was infectious. Thank you for this amazing opportunity!”
