Best-Practices Executive Retreat

Stathis-Mittel will be hosting a select group of about 25 valued industry colleagues for a three-day, two-night executive retreat and roundtable focused on industry best-practices knowledge exchange and recreational networking opportunities. The event will be held at The Groton Inn in Groton MA – October 13 through October 15, 2021.

The structure of the event will be a combination of roundtable discussions, recreational outings meant to energize creative thinking, and networking-oriented meals & entertainment. We are limiting full sponsorships to five companies.

A unique aspect of the gathering will be that Just One Sip, the band Scott Stathis is a member of, will play during the central evening of the retreat. Other attendees who are musically inclined will be invited to participate.

In short, the retreat will be a celebration of industry relationships and peer-oriented learning.
