New ‘Detox Delegate Rate’ for 2015

New ‘Detox Delegate Rate’ for 2015


Happy staff are 12% more productive*. Therefore happy, healthy conference delegates will be more productive too!

We have worked closely with our caterers to tailor make a special ‘detox’ delegate package for January and February 2015.

By definition a detox is ‘a period of time where the body is rid of unhealthy substances’. Think super foods at lunchtime and swapping coffee and cake for sumptuous smoothies!

However, detox is not just about the body. With Avon Wildlife Trust’s 250-acre nature reserve on our doorstep, which is a beautiful setting for walks, outside meetings and teambuilding activities, your mind will be taken care of too.

“It is winter and snowflakes are drifting like aimless moths. My breath is a visible billow. Trees are gnarled, skeletal silhouettes on the ridges and the air is crystalline, startlingly clear…”
