Some companies struggle with innovation for the same reasons that they struggle with strategising. Being stuck in the same routine and same environment every day doesn’t help spurt growth or innovation.

Innovate with a company retreat

The company retreats that we organise at Surf Office are designed for innovation growth in two ways. Firstly, we handle all of the niggly bits so that you don’t have to. This includes accommodation, workspace, meeting rooms, team building activities, restaurant bookings and more. This means that you can get away to inspiring locations for a few days and focus on the only thing that matters; your work.

Secondly, and most importantly, we’ve been helping dozens of teams with their innovation for years. We help to organise short hackathons, demos, brainstormings, gamestormings and mini accelerators, all designed to get you working at a fast pace to spurt new, innovative ideas.

Being in a new environment will give you the energy you need for this jam-packed innovation boost, but the activities we organise outside of work time will ensure you feel well rested and not only focused on work!


Are you looking to take your company to the next level?

Not all companies are looking to innovate. Some are perfectly happy with the way things are. But, the majority of companies that we work with are full of keen talent with bright ideas, eager to see what difference they can make with their company.

If you’re looking to innovate, whether it’s with new ideas, a new product, changing your branding, altering your direction or something else entirely, let us help you.

Looking for more information on how Surf Office can help you innovate?

We’ve got a huge range of sessions, tasks, activities and games that we run to get companies to the next level.

If you want more information on how we can help, please just schedule a free call with us.

Can’t I just run my own innovation sessions without you?

Of course, and we’re not stopping you! But any company can call together a meeting, get a whiteboard out and ask for some innovative ideas. Sometimes this works, most of the time it doesn’t. It comes down to the quality of these innovation sessions.

We’ve learnt tricks from some industry leaders; companies that we’ve hosted such as WordPress, Shopify, Upwork and Toptal. They’ve shown us amazing games and activities they use to spark new ideas. We’ve also hosted dozens of our own innovation sessions, helping companies to break through mental blocks that they’ve been having.

This experience means that we can help you to hit the ground running as soon as your retreat starts. You don’t have to waste time back at the office waiting for someone to awkwardly suggest the first idea. We’ll get you started before you’ve even sat down!

“The little things you did made a big difference; helping us to find and book activities, meeting us on arrival, giving us tips and advice in Slack, providing mobile WiFi, etc.”

All teams and all companies innovate in a different way, and no-one knows this better than us. We take time to understand your needs and goals before you arrive, so that we can carefully craft the perfect retreat for you.

If you want plenty of hands on help with innovating, then you can make use of our hackathons, mini accelerators and gamestormings. Or, if you just need a place to eat and sleep, then we’ll handle that so you can get on with the important stuff.
