YPO Forum Retreat

Creating a unique forum retreat begins by working with the forum moderator to identify specific topics, themes, and/or experiences of interest. Prior to the retreat, all forum members complete a confidential online survey that outlines their current personal and professional situations, view of forum dynamics, big wants for the retreat, and any pressing issues. This pre-work process helps me develop an agenda that addresses the forum goals and design an experience that takes the group to the next level. 

To continue our journey after the retreat, I have regular communication with the moderator or forum leader to ensure updates are juicy, presentations are dynamic, members are holding each other accountable, and meetings are of the highest value.

"Paul's fresh approach to relationship building and personal growth made our time together so impactful and worthwhile. I was able to apply much of what we discussed both in my career and home life.”

Michelle Rondinelli

YPO Pennsylvania

"Paul has a unique ability to quickly feel like an extension of the forum, that creates an environment of openness and trust. His mastery of the forum process and unique toolkit are presented in an innovative style that challenged and engaged our forum at a whole new level. I highly recommend Paul to journey with and elevate your forum."

Nick Thomson

YPO Jackson Hole

"Our forum group has worked with Paul on a few occasions. Each time we worked with Paul, it left a lasting impression on us, with many "ahah" moments and new tools that we continue to use to this day. He is very skilled at his craft and genuinely cares; he's always improving his approach and tailoring it with each person. He's authentic, and gets invested in your success."

Chris Bryson

Impact Investor. Former CEO of Unata

"Paul has the ability to connect respectfully and authentically, which appears to occur naturally for him. Paul's energy and approach certainly adds to the experience of a facilitated group discussion or personal exploration. I look forward to engaging with Paul again at some point soon during my evolving life journey.” 

Brian Madeiros

YPO Bermuda

"Three years in a row Paul has elevated our forum connectedness through experiential retreats. Being able to journey with Paul over the years has been invaluable. Each year we hit the ground running, which allows Paul to take us to deeper levels. He is our go-to resource for retreats and key sounding board to the forum throughout the year."

Spencer Butterfield

YPO Bermuda, Forum Officer

"Paul did a great job getting us ready to be productive during the retreat with his pre-work process. The outcome from our retreat has been tremendous. Our group has a new focus and realistic expectations of where we are going. Our meetings are more productive than they have ever been."

Chad Chandlee

YPO Iowa

"We've worked with Paul over multiple retreats, because he builds deep connections, he facilitates growth, and he drives meaningful conversations. There's a reason we go back to Paul time and time again: because he's the best."

Blair Livingston

CEO Street Contxt


I specialize in providing guidance to forums looking to improve meeting ROI, establish deeper connections, address difficult issues and situations, and explore personal issues. I've had the pleasure of customizing over 50 unique forum retreat experiences and designed workshops for over a thousand YPOers.
