Shaping the Hearts

of our Future

Exclusive Coaching Retreat before WEF week 

Davos Switzerland, January 14-15, Jan 21, 2023


Meet us at the dawn of the World Economic Forum 2023 in the mountains of Davos. Shape the agenda of tomorrow - while replenishing your energy reserves and enjoying the beauty of the mountains.


„The most exciting breakthroughs of the 21st century will not occur because of technology but because of an expanding concept of what it means to be human.“
John Naisbitt, Megatrends


A Unique Setting

What makes THE SPIRIT OF DAVOS unique is that most of the dialogue and workshop take place on the mountains of Davos.

We start the event with a fire site chat on the evening of January 14, 2023 at the breathtaking Schatzalp above the city of Davos. The second part of the event on January 15, 2023 takes place on skis or snowboard in the beautiful Parsenn ski resort of Davos.



Holistic Experience

THE SPIRIT OF DAVOS gives you a holistic experience for your heart, mind and body while replenishing your energy reserves.

We let you share and (re)discover what it means to be(come) human.

We take you on a journey away from your stressed minds to feeling your bodies and discovering your hearts.

We then explore how to integrate this experience into your daily lives and shape futures today. It is not a future dictated by technology or "those above" or "other unknown entities". It is a future that is created and shaped by us humans. This future is human.



What you will learn

At the end of the event, you will understand

  • how to re-connect with your own human core as a navigator to shape our futures

  • how to integrate your human core in daily personal and business life

  • the MVP approach is a practical method to shed light on decisive drivers of change

  • what it takes to become a conscious and transformational leader in the 21st century


Last but not least, you will have lots of fun in the beautiful nature of Davos, make new connections and charge your batteries for the WEF Annual Meeting and events in Davos.



Please note that you need to be at least an intermediate skier or snowboarder to attend the second part of the event as it takes place on the mountain in the Parsenn ski resort.
