Live in NOLA

Get the in-person experience you've been missing.

This February we're making a triumphant return to the in-person experience of Creative Leaders Retreat and WITHIN. You'll get to network and learn and ask questions with like-minded individuals from all across the country face to face. You'll also get to experience what makes Creative Leaders Retreat special, from the historic setting in the heart of the French Quarter to the southern traditions, live jazz and flavors of Louisiana.

Agency and Brand-Side Together

Too often we’ve heard that there isn't a formal training process to go from being a creative to a creative leader. The Creative Leaders Retreat and our brand-side agency conference WITHIN are designed to bridge that gap while pushing the boundaries beyond the traditional conference. This year we’re bringing the two events together under one roof in New Orleans. You’ll join like-minded creatives and exchange ideas as we navigate through these historic times.  

Connections & Dialogue

We realize some of the most important parts of the Creative Leaders Retreat + WITHIN are the networking and discussions outside the sessions. That’s why we are working to ensure that attendees will not only get to ask our speakers questions but also connect with each other in small groups and one-on-one by organizing group activities, shared meals and networking opportunities.

The Path Forward

Since March 2020, the world has been turned upside down with COVID-19, civil unrest, a tumultuous U.S. Presidential Election and changing business and consumer needs. The ad industry has rebounded, but we’re facing a more fractured landscape than ever before. You’ll get to hear from both agency and brand-side creative leaders on how they are adjusting to this new world and creating the path forward through uncertainty.

No podiums. No hashtags.

The retreat happens behind closed doors so that we create a safe space for open and honest dialogue. That means we ask that there's no tweeting about what's being said and no recording of discussions. And this year we’re bringing agencies and brands together to not only learn from one another but share experiences in a relaxed, non-competitive environment.
