A Sea of Possibilities

posted by brad at 9:43 AM

This past Sunday the Furious Board of Directors convened at one of our member's beach house for a day long retreat. It was a time for all of us to both reflect and look forward. Our own "State of the Union" so to speak. Thankfully, the day provided tremendous unification and clarity for what the company's focus, identity and challenges are, currently and for the future. There was no partisanship in the beach house.

We drank a lot of coffee in the morning, ate a little salad for lunch, spotted some dolphins, and then drank more coffee in the afternoon. We spent over six hours talking and discussing and filling up giant note pads with thoughts, ideas, questions and action items around our company's mission. The dialogue was intense, insightful, fearless and inspiring. Now the hard part, execution. Here's a shot of the our break, most people are hovering back by the coffee pot.

2007 marks our 5th year in existence (to the public). As we took time to look back on our accomplishments and failures and used those learnings to help look ahead at the future, there is literally a sea of possibilities for our company, our artists and our audience. In large part because of this group. The incredible strength and resources our board members (eight amazing civic and community leaders) have brought to help our emerging company accomplish everything on those giant note pads, and more. So, this retreat was about charting our next course. Creating the next map for the company's growth and development. Always moving forward. Furiously.

We decided we needed another retreat in July to check in again. I think we all just like the beach house.

2007 Season Announcement is coming soon...

Be Furious.
