A woman who has worked in the financial services industry for nearly three decades has become a partner in a luxury retreat business.
Lisa Webb, 47, who lives in a village just outside Stratford upon Avon, has become a partner in Secret Warriors - a business that offers tailored retreats.
It was established in the Peak District by her colleague Ange Terry and was originally set up to offer weekend escapes for women looking to recharge their batteries. However, the business has grown in more directions which resulting in the new partnership, which will offer retreats in the Cotswolds.
The business creates and hosts personalised retreats for a variety of clients focussing on subjects ranging from yoga and wellbeing, corporate training and strategy days as well as specialist retreats such as writing and the menopause.
Ange said: “When I first set up the business, I was primarily aiming at women who were looking for a weekend escape. However, I started to receive enquiries from all quarters including businesses recognising the importance of wellbeing for their staff wanting to incorporate some health and wellbeing aspects into their staff training and workshops.
“I also hear from groups of friends wanting to catch up with each other who are seeking a little indulgence and to experience the great outdoors, as well as a lot of enquiries for health and wellbeing events. I am thrilled with the level of interest which has far outweighed my initial expectations.
“To have the ability to grow the business this early on is a real privilege and this is testimony to the hard work of the beautiful venues and caterers we use, the specialist services we buy in and our returning clients who have helped developed the business over the last year.”
Lisa, Barclays head of corporate relations central, said: “I love my job in financial services, but I am also delighted to be joining Ange in her business, looking after weekend retreats.
“To be able to offer this in some of the most stunning locations in the Cotswolds makes the experience even better for our clients.”
To mark the launch, the company is offering a greatly reduced rate on its two-day coaching retreat on 15 and 16 January looking at setting business goals for 2020.
