Board of Director Retreats for BC not-for-profit organizations, governance, leadership

Planning and facilitating your next retreat

Vantage Point’s half to full-day board retreat can offer a much needed opportunity for your board to develop as a team and re-engage with the vision and mission of the organization.

Engage Vantage Point to support the planning and facilitation of your board retreat, incorporating strengths-based team development and opportunities to discuss the board’s roles and responsibilities in governing the organization. As an input to the board retreat, Vantage Point can administer a board self-evaluation as part of the planning process.

Team Development

Effective teams are critical to organizational success. Understanding your leadership skills and personal attributes will positively impact the effectiveness of your board. The team building process will begin with a strengths-based assessment, which provides specific information about the current mix of skills and strengths on your board. From this our facilitator will lead you though team-building activities focused on improving communications and dealing with conflict.

Customized for You

Our development and delivery model is nimble, flexible, and in tune with your organizational culture and context. Based on your unique goals and situation, we will create a session that delivers relevant and collaborative learning that is engaging and cost-effective. Our staff and volunteer facilitators, or “knowledge philanthropists”, are proven experts in their fields and can address various topics.

Board Self-Evaluation


Kick-off your board retreat process with an opportunity for each board member to reflect on their board experience. Vantage Point will customize the online board self-evaluation, disseminate the survey, collect results, and provide a summary of responses. The survey will provide key insights into priority areas for board development.

We Deliver Engaging, High-Impact Board Retreats.
