Meet the team: Bloom Retreat 2022
I’ve hired the best in the biz to share their expertise and provide you with the tools necessary to tackle what’s next for you and your business.
Every facilitator involved in the Bloom Retreat is a small business owner who fully encompasses Bloom’s values and goals. Each person is here to support you during your retreat experience and ensure you leave ready to Bloom.
Host: Dara Laine Murray
Dara is the person who is asked to plan her family’s and friends’ vacations, just because she is THAT GOOD at finding places and spaces with great energy and unique surroundings.
She’s a convener, a lover of introductions, and an Aries sun + Leo moon (it’s a thing.)
A natural cheerleader, Dara finds genuine joy in seeing people succeed.
With Bloom, she turns that same drive and passion into planning the ultimate retreat for service-based business owners who are in need of a reset. With every detail, she’s envisioning how it will support attendees in tackling whatever comes next with their business.
Keynote: Arianna Valle
Arianna is the founder and solopreneur behind Valle Creative Consulting. She helps small online business owners channel their unique selves, expertise, and values into marketing strategies that grow their business.
Every attendee receives a one-on-one consultation call with Arianna prior to the retreat to learn more about their business goals and offer insights to make the most of our work together. A post-retreat one-on-one call is included to process and reflect upon their work and provide additional feedback and resources to benefit their continued growth.
At Bloom, she’ll be leading interactive sessions to help attendees identify their content pillars to grow their business through.
- authentic connection,
- effective time management,
- and clear communication.
Creativity & Mindfulness Coach: Kelly Laughlin
Kelly is the founder of Odette Press and an artist, writer, and creative guide. She explores the relationships between movement, art, attunement, and nature as methods of self care and education.
In addition to a pre-retreat one on one creativity call, she’ll be leading Bloom attendees through a reflective, creative, intentional writing session. During this session, she’ll foster:
- connections through responding to different insightful questions
- stillness and strength via inner reflection
- what it is each Bloom attendee is hoping to cultivate or embody through their business and personal aims.
Brand Photographer: Emily Wilkerson
Emily is a photographer focused on capturing moments, emotion, and the true essence of her subjects.
Prior to the retreat, Emily will guide attendees through identifying their photographic brand identity and designing mood boards.
During Bloom, Emily will capture personalized and unique brand mini sessions for each participant, with a minimum of nine final images provided to each attendee.
These photos will help you bring your brand to life in a way that is natural, authentic, and consistent.
