'The Boardroom': your meeting on board

Do you want:

  • something different from a room with a flip chart?
  • reflect together on your organisation from a distance?
  • really get to know each other as board or MT?

Then come on board with your MT or Executive Board and discover the power of your floating 'Boardroom'. 


For whom?

We sail with management teams, boards, project teams and works councils.



Your team sails a trip together and meets one or more times a day: this can be inside at the dinner table or outside on deck. There is a multimedia screen for presentations and we are happy to provide lunch, coffee, tea and snacks. Between meetings, you actively sail the ship with us and/or you can relax on deck.  You can make a day trip or a trip of several days. You can stay the night on board or, if you wish, we can book hotel rooms for you ashore.


Process guidance (optional)

Arjan van Dijk, the skipper and owner of 'De Groninger' is an experienced interim manager and management coach. He can attend or chair your meeting as a process facilitator.

A facilitator/process supervisor watches over the process:

  • That the issue is clear;
  • That the meeting procedure is clear;
  • that everyone is given a chance to speak;
  • that the thinking is truly creative, analytical or practical;
  • that each point leads to the desired outcome: information, advice or a decision;
  • that time is monitored.

To be clear: the facilitator does NOT interfere with the content, only with the process.

Want to know more?  Ask about the possibilities or schedule an online conversation about your situation and wishes. Or visit Arjan's LinkedIn profile.


What does it cost?
You might not expect it, but sailing with your MT is no more expensive than staying in a conference centre with room hire. For process guidance you pay an extra fee per hour.


We have extensive catering options for every budget. You can choose from a basic, medium and luxury package.


We will be happy to make you an appropriate offer.
