Destination New



What is success?

You’re at a crossroads in your career. You have or had a great job. You know you perform well but you feel it might be time for something new. But what? And how to decide? What do you really want to do and how much more are you capable of achieving? You want to find your way to your future, and as quickly as possible.


We offer a programme that enables you to find the correct path quickly and effectively. You will be away from home for a week, away from your normal environment and its pressures. You’ll be in the French countryside undertaking intensive personal work as well as enjoying diverse activities and fun moments. Four experienced and accredited coaches will guide and challenge you alongside a maximum of five other participants.

The programme begins on Sunday afternoon at London St. Pancras and ends on Friday evening at the same place. You’ll be sharing the journey with a small number of people along a number of connected themes; Who am I? What do I really want? What am I truly capable of? What am I doing here? And what next? The journey to your success has started.

What you'll be doing

From Monday to Friday each day will begin with a short warm up activity rewarded by a fresh French breakfast. Following that, each day comprises two individual coaching sessions, two small group sessions and a creative session with the whole group. You will receive a personal psychometric profile which will enhance your personal insight into yourself and help you understand the environments in which you flourish. Each session will be guided by one of four experienced coaches. We will enjoy lunch and dinner together and will also take time out to enjoy wine tasting one afternoon. You will conclude the week energised, inspired, with direction, a clear goal and a personal plan of how to achieve it. But the journey doesn’t end there; your personal coach will monitor and support your progress after this event.

Before you begin this journey your coach will talk to you about your expectations and agree how you will work together and we’ll ask you to do a small amount of work prior to your departure for France.

Topics you'll cover


After coming home there is still a lot to be done by you, before you are actually on your way to a new future. It is possible that you need some more help at this stage. The personal coach, who will monitor and support your progress after this event, can provide you with advice on how to pursue. Specific coaching, interview training, help with starting your own business, it can all be done. However, because we expect the needs to differentiate vastly for each person, this kind of follow-up is not included in the fixed price of this programme.


This total package costs £3950 per person. This includes facilitation and coaching, all professional tools, your return trip to London, and your accommodation, including all meals and drinks.

Kaart L'Isle - Loire

The programme takes place at L’Isle. L’Isle is a holiday estate in the Loire valley, 280 km south-west of Paris. This region is called Anjou and is known for its vineyards.

The estate covers 1.6 hectares which is bordered by a small river. The grounds are home to countless fruit trees and rose bushes, two large grassed areas, a pond, a boules pitch and an impressive beach volleyball court. With a bit of luck you’ll also see deer around the grounds.

The buildings themselves are a very old farm, built in the traditional style and renovated and modernised without sacrificing any of the original character and charm. The walls are half a metre thick, constructed of tufa, with oak-beamed ceilings. Central heating throughout and the renovated and insulated slate roof means the house is pleasantly cool in the summer and warm in the winter, whilst the convenience of the modern features ensures your comfort.

The whole estate is rented for this programme. Every participant has his or her own bedroom, if wanted, and there are plenty of spaces available for quiet conversations, group activities and reflection.

Hosted by

Azure Consulting provides people-based consultancy and coaching and a wide range of training and development programmes, all designed to ‘Improving Leadership Performance Through Inspiration’.

Juul Unlimited & Be Ready for Change help organisations and individuals with organisational development, professionalisation and change. In most cases this is an individual process, but people, processes and systems need to be integrated.

Our coaching and development programmes support and facilitate change. At the heart of many such initiatives the need to promote and help in the practical development of the leadership and management of cultural change is paramount.  This is a challenging and often long term process in which we are required to use skills of sensitivity, motivating and inspiring others, overcoming resistance and help in the development of practical methods to ensure plans become reality.  It is, however, an area in which we regularly manage to work with our clients to great effect and we are very proud of our track record in this field.

Our highly pragmatic style is well received by busy clients and individual managers as they experience immediate benefits to their organisation and their respective teams.aar menu
