Frequently Asked Questions
Should I know what B Together is?
That depends whether you have been lucky enough to attend any of our previous community retreats. Leading on from the success of our first two retreats in 2016 and 2017, we are hosting B Together in May 2018. Our community has grown and our influence is growing and what better way to celebrate than bringing together over 130 people from the B Corp movement to spend 2 days learning, sharing and getting to know each other!
Who do I bring (and how many can attend)?
If you are part of the B Corp community and want to spend time with a diverse range of inspirational business leaders - you are invited! As we have limited places available, we are capping this to a maximum of TWO people per B Corp. (If you are from a large B Corp and want to bring more people please contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
Anyone from your business can attend - we would recommend someone from your Senior team (Founder, CEO etc) and another person who is either responsible to for driving B Corp or someone who you would like to engage in B Corp.

What shall I pack?
Can I camp?

We've wanted to visit West Lexham for the past 2 years but it's always been booked. Tucked away in the heart of the Norfolk countryside there are 21 acres filled with wildlife, chalk streams (ready for wild swimming), tree houses and of course a campfire! The magical family run site has been lovingly renovated with re-purposed materials, runs on biomass boilers and renewable energy, and importantly is run for future generations. We think it's great and we hope you do too!
Your retreat ticket includes all meals (Monday dinner to Wednesday lunch); tea and coffee; practical workshops; inspiring presentations and best-practice sharing; morning runs and walks around the grounds and evening campfires. The accommodation ticket includes two nights in your preferred accommodation - this includes towels and tea and coffee making facilities in all rooms.
Tickets are priced separately this year as there are a variety of accommodation options available and we want o ensure the retreat is as inclusive as possible.
We will be providing a transfer for the 15:44 train from London Kings Cross (arriving at Downham Market at 17:07). For departures we will provide a transfer from West Lexham to Downham Market for the 14:08 train to London Kings Cross (arrives at 15:30). We highly recommend booking these trains as if you arrive at a different time you will have to arrange your own transport to West Lexham.
All of our retreats are casual and we want you to be comfortable. If you want to partake in an activity, we recommend packing workout clothes and suitable walking shoes if you want to explore the grounds and a swimsuit for swimming. And...don't forget to bring any information about your organisation that you'd like to share with the rest of the B Corp community.
Yes! There is space for 10 tent pitches in the grounds of West Lexham and there are lovely outdoor toilet and washing facilities. Please let email@example.com know if you are interested in camping and if you will be sharing with any colleagues.
We can provide a 50% refund on tickets up to 30 days prior to the event. We are unable to offer any refunds on tickets 14 days prior to the event. If you are unable to attend, please let firstname.lastname@example.org know as soon as possible and we can see if your ticket can be transferred to someone else.
