If you’ve been following my blogs and tweets, you’ll know that I’m currently at the Conrad Algarve in Portugal. I’m doing my second site visit ahead of our first event of 2015 at the end of March.

This visit is all about specifics. I’m tying down a lot of the logistics and operational considerations for the event and I’m checking out experiences. And what a wonderful time I’m having!

Earlier today I popped out into the glorious Portuguese sunshine and took part in my first ever Segway tour. I’ve always seen these things when I’ve been on holiday — but I’ve never had a proper try!

The team at the Conrad suggested a Segway tour as activity that might qualify to be included as one of our Connections Experiences. Having totally enjoyed myself from start to finish, I agree. I think it’s going to be an ideal experience for our delegates.

Here I am posing about to begin the Segway tour:


This is the kind of activity that our delegates will love! It’s a little bit physical — but totally easy — it needs you to step outside of the standard ‘business’ mindset to get to grips with the Segway, and it’s fun whizzing around on just two parallel wheels. It should definitely get some business relationships forming!

When you underpin these kind of activities with the 5-star service that offered by a property such as the Conrad Algarve, the conditions are set for a really valuable event.

I’ve a lot more to tell you about so please stay tuned for more.

As always, if you’d like to find out more about attending Connections Luxury, please drop me a note.
