Savvy Social


An intimate, all-inclusive retreat designed to provide future-focused business leaders with an escape from the hustle, the space to refocus their priorities, and a deep connection with like-minded vision-chasers.

Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada
November 3-5, 2023

When Was The Last Time You Truly Felt Connected?

When your daily tasks filled you with excitement (instead of feeling like you’re operating on autopilot)

When you and your team chased a vision (instead of allowing “getting through the week” to be a regular measure of success)

When your big picture goals were in complete focus (instead of being a good idea you’ll flesh out when you have the time)

When your network was a community you could lean on (instead of just a rising number of followers and connections on LinkedIn)

When was the last time you gave yourself the space to reignite these connections?

What if I told you there was a business retreat that gave you exactly that?

A retreat that gives you the space to break free from your routine and trades in the seminars and sales pitches for a weekend of deep connection and even deeper work?

Deeper work on your thought leadership so you can be the influential voice your industry needs.

Deeper connections with a small community of visionary leaders who know what the future holds for their space–and want to know how to be ready.

Deeper work on strengthening your business’s future instead of leaving it all up to changing algorithms, government regulations, and recessions.

Deeper connections with your team so you can influence the growth of an inclusive organization that sets the standard in your space.

Deeper work on taking care of your mind, body, & soul so can have peace of mind as you reset and take these next steps toward building the future of your business.

The Savvy Social Retreat Is Where Game-Changing Connections Will Happen

Your host, Andréa Jones, invites you to the Savvy Social Retreat

The Cozy, Low-Key Getaway You’ve Been Waiting For

No more sprucing up your background or trying to keep your kiddos out of frame during your next zoom meeting.

This weekend is all about you being your most comfortable you (minus the distractions) as you connect with other rest-hungry, vision-driven business leaders.

Your host, Andréa Jones, invites you to the Hallmark Movie-esque town of Niagara-on-the-Lake to an intimate, all-inclusive experience no High-Energy Conference can rival.

(No funnels or sales pitches allowed!)

Put a pause on listening to conference speakers deliver shallow answers and start having meaningful conversations that leave you yearning for deeper connections and a renewed commitment to your vision-shifting ideas.

A Comfy & Cozy Message From Someone Who Needs This Retreat

Just As Much As You!

Andréa Jones

Your host, Andréa Jones

I love the social media marketing space. That’s where I’ve built my expertise, grinding away for my clients, my students, and my mentees. But as much as I love this work, lately, I’m feeling what too many of my clients and business owner friends are experiencing in their individual zones of genius.

Running a business is all-consuming, and after getting so caught up in this life, it’s easy to forget that we’re all human.

And what drives us as human beings isn’t work. It’s connections.

Not the transactional connections we rely on to grow our businesses. I’m talking about the connections with others that challenge us to be better and the connections to the work that has an impact beyond this year’s revenue goal.

It’s these connections that drive us to do better and be better for the people we serve and the people on our teams.

I’m passionate about reviving these connections in all of us, so my rose-colored glasses view for this retreat is to provide the type of atmosphere that breaks down professional barriers, cultivates conversations that truly matter, and allows you the freedom to think deeper and bigger about the work that matters to you most.

Crave Over Your Cozy Accommodations

We’ll spend our quiet weekend of modern, country elegance at the beautiful Five-Star Pillar and Post Hotel. Located in the heart of peaceful and picturesque Niagara-on-the-Lake, your stay will be a plush experience you’ll never want to end. 

From first-class bedding to lush bathrobes, the hotel is outfitted with accessible rooms draped in comfort. Enjoy the on-site 13,000-square-foot spa while experiencing vintage, fine wines.

Once you arrive, there’s no reason to leave until you’re ready to catch your plane. Even then, we can’t blame you if you extend your stay at your home-away-from-home for another day–or two.
