3-day Residential Event

A globally-renowned beauty brand hosted a three-day ‘Tribe Event’ on the exclusive Osea Island, tucked away in the Blackwater Estuary of Essex, inviting over 400 stockists including therapists and salon owners. The goal? To provide an enriching platform for learning, development, and a bit of R&R.

Services Offered

A global beauty brand had a 3-day ‘Tribe Event’ in the South East region, inviting over 400 of their stockists, ranging from therapists to salon owners. The event aimed to provide a stimulating platform for knowledge-sharing, learning, and development of the body and mind.




How We Delivered

The venue chosen for the event was the exclusive Osea Island, situated in the Blackwater Estuary in Essex. Spread over 550 acres, the island could only be accessed by car for four hours a day during low tide. Upon arrival, guests were given name badges and tote bags filled with goodies before checking into their accommodation, which included cottages, apartments, rooms in grand houses, and even yurts!


The event was an amazing opportunity for attendees to disconnect from the outside world and focus on their wellness. Starting each day with Tai Chi on the beach at sunrise, followed by a group meditation, helped attendees to focus their minds on the day ahead. The conference room, arranged in theatre-style seating, had a large stage where keynote speakers and demonstrations were held. In between sessions, guests had the opportunity to explore multiple food and drink stations and participate in interactive learning sessions, which provided ample opportunities for networking and sharing experiences.


The evenings were absolutely fantastic! There was so much laughter and dancing that it felt like the whole island was bouncing along to the beat of the Motown band. And let me tell you, those guys knew how to put on a show!

The second day was just as awesome, with activities that helped everyone unwind and get in the zone. After some mindfulness and relaxation exercises, they got to hear from some of the most innovative and forward-thinking speakers around. It was a great opportunity to learn and grow.


When it was time to go, nobody wanted to leave to return to the faster pace of life. They were all feeling so inspired and reconnected with each other. It was an event that left all attendees feeling energised and ready to tackle whatever challenges lay ahead.


And let’s not forget about the fantastic team event organising that went into the event. Working closely with the client every step of the way, we made sure everything went according to plan, especially with the tight timings for arrivals and departures to make sure the travel coincided with the tides!
