How it works

THE PROGRAM

You've arrived in Barcelona or Cape Town. Now what?

Don’t worry, we’ve got you! We get you started with a kick-off event, after which the regular program starts.

Kick-off

KICK-OFF

Directly after arrival in Barcelona or Cape Town you and your fellow participants gather to start your Sweet Spot experience with a unique kick-off event.
During the kick-off event the participants disconnect, set goals and get to know each other.

Program

PROGRAM

On Monday, you start your work week as usual – only in a sunny destination instead of in your regular (home)office.
Intertwined with your work week, you will have training & coaching sessions, Learn & Share sessions, and weekend network activities.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

Everything you need, and more.

We provide everything you need to be productive in your current job, while discovering more of your huge potential in an adventure abroad.
