Why attend

We are social creatures and we need connection and community to survive and thrive. After more than a year of pandemic and lockdown and virtual meetings, it’s time to get back to hugging and talking in person. 

The TDTT Retreat is an exclusive retreat for TDTT members to connect, learn, and grow together. We will have sessions that will get you thinking and give you ideas to accelerate success. We will also have plenty of time for you to network and connect with your colleagues and friends in talent development. 

Our goal is for you to get ideas and solutions you need while developing lifelong friendships with people who will support you throughout the rest of your career. 

If you enjoy the community and connecting with others in talent development, you will absolutely love this retreat.

Additionally, I am a connector. I love bringing people together. If you have been in my network or a member of the community for a while, you’ve probably seen that. I love hosting our community and connecting people on a regular basis. And I really love hosting events and bringing people together to connect and support each other. This is not even about me or any big name speakers.

This is about US. This is about community. This is about bringing people together to support each other.

It’s about time.


This retreat will be hosted in Orlando Florida at the Aloft Hotel. Aloft Hotels are fresh, purposeful environments and vibrant spaces that bring people together, perfect for our retreat!

What you get

Everyone attending can enjoy:

Two full days

of experiential learning, masterminds, networking, and thought leadership to turbo charge your expertise in talent development.

Two personal mastermind sessions

Working in groups, we'll brainstorm with you to examine a real challenge you are facing so that you can return armed with practical, relevant ideas.

Delicious food

Light breakfast, lunch, and dinner on each day (except for dinner on Thursday) to make sure you have plenty of fuel to keep you energized.

An optional 3rd day!

Purchase the 3rd-day VIP Mastermind option for a full-day of intimate and personalized masterminding with Andy. Each person will have time to share what they are working on and a chance to solve problems, break through limiting beliefs, and set you up for success to crush your goals.

A VIP ticket also provides you with:

Special access

A third day of more intimate and personalized coaching from Andy.

An extra mastermind session

with an even smaller group of talent development professionals to get even greater, more personalized support for not only business goals, but personal goals as well.
