Has the British weather got you feeling a little blue this February? We understand that long commutes, dark days and the hustle and bustle of city life can sometimes leave us feeling a little under the weather. Stepping out of the office in these conditions can seem like a daunting task, which often leaves us day dreaming of more peaceful destinations to jet off to in our spare time. In this industry, spare time is hard to find (we know!), so why not consider incorporating work with play?
Imagine story conferences in a scenic Scandinavian setting, boardroom meetings overlooking the Mediterranean or even wrap parties in the Welsh mountains; with increased properties offering everything you need under one roof, why not make it your 2018 mission to escape the city more often, mixing up those monotonous meetings?
Here’s just a few of our favourites…
