Some of our most addict readers will have noticed that this week's issue came a bit later than usual, and in a slightly more concise form. Reason being both of us have been attending the first edition of the European Venture Retreat
up in the Dolomites last week, so haven't had enough time to stay on top of and fully digest the numerous events that occurred while we were hiking. And quite frankly we were looking forward to switching-off a little, which also made it easy not to care about the massive crash. We will resume with the usual format from this week, but we thought we would still drop a quick note to assure you all that we all made it up and down in one piece, and to share a few of the takeouts.
The retreat was a raging success by the way, huge kudos to Stefano
for thinking of the format, organizing it all and pulling it off in a very smooth fashion. And thanks for all the participants for giving it a chance. We had snow, rain, fog, wind and sun, and three days (and nights) to spend with a great and diverse group of 60+ people in an truly stunning and unique setting.
These, plus more at the bottom, are some of the views we had the fortune of experiencing (while waiting for the pro pics):
