A unique opportunity, an inspiring location!

Following in the Welsh tradition that celebrates debate, and competitive poetry, a Cynefin retreat provides a distinct opportunity to communion with nature, as well as the rich cultural tradition of creating emergent knowledge and understanding through informed discussion and debate, away from vicissitudes of the press and social media. Each retreat will be stimulated by a faculty of thought-leaders including Dave Snowden. Participating faculty for each retreat will be announced shortly.

Join us 14-18 October in the stunning Snowdonia Mountains in Wales where we will immerse ourselves in a deep exploration on Cynefin and Economics & Value.  Cynefin Retreats are residential and tickets are inclusive of accommodations, meals, and session activities. 

As in all the 2018 retreats we are adding a post-retreat event to Train the Trainer. At the end of this you are qualified to run the Foundations Course but this course goes deeper. It is in effect an advanced Cynefin application course on the basis that a trainer should no more than the person being trained. Also uniquely on this occasion one session will be devoted to creating the new approach to design so you have a chance to be one of the first practitioners.

** SPACES ARE LIMITED ** – Please note that the all retreat venues have limited accommodations and retreats will be limited by venue capacity.  

The start and end times on the first and last day will be confirmed closer to the event.  We expect to confirm for people to arrive on Day 1 in the afternoon in time for a group dinner and evening social and depart the last day around noon immediately following a morning wrap-up session.
