A much more pleasant way to do something different is to experience my one day Parisian Business or Career Retreat. This may only be one day but it’s a day away from working in your business or career, and instead working on it…and all in the most chic, stylish and inspiring surroundings of Paris.
We will begin with a leisurely breakfast on the Eurostar where we will relax into the day, getting to know each other and setting intentions and goals for our time together.
Once we’ve reached Paris we’ll head to Montmarte where we do a little more work over a delicious coffee followed by a visit to my favourite Parisian chocolaterie, just in case you share my passion for heavenly chocolate.
Even if your options and choices are as many and varied as the chocolates on show, we’ll work through them and hone them down during our time together.
Moving on, we will climb the steps to the beautiful Scare Coeur, occasionally stopping, not just to take in the view over this stunning city, but to examine your current situation and all the options from various viewpoints and vistas. It’s an incredibly powerful metaphor that can be as breath-taking as the view.
At the Sacre Coeur you’ve some time to yourself to wander this awe-inspiring building, light a candle or climb even more steps to the tops of the Dome and get an even better view of the city. When you’re ready we’ll leave the peace of the Basilica and move into the colour, hustle and bustle of Montmarte and the world famous Place du Tertre. This was the stomping ground of artists such as Picasso, and now the home of some of the best portrait painters in France, who may have to wait up to ten years to grab one of the much wanted licenses.
Here, we will add colour and creativity to your vision, or maybe just shake it up a little (I’m good at that!). Lunch is your choice. It could be a charming, kitsch, traditional French restaurant where they serve a soupe l’oignon to die for, a brazen tourist restaurant right in the middle of the main hub, or stylish brasserie down the hill on Rue Lepic.
After a working lunch and a glass of wine, you’ll have a little free time to visit the Dali museum, wander this amazing area or experience the atmospheric Montmartre cemetery (if you like photography, you won’t want to miss this), whilst you ponder the morning’s work or choose to do a few coaching exercises. We come back together for a glass of Champagne, tea or coffee on the terrace of a chic four star hotel that offers a different and yet equally gorgeous panoramic view of Paris.
By now, we are moving onto strategy and action points, so that you’ll go away with what you need and concrete, achievable steps to help you reach your desired goals.

“I came to our day with a fuzzy idea of wanting to write a book to support what I do. By the end of the day with Paula we had fleshed out exactly what I had to do to reach both my readers and potential publishers, and still stay true to my original idea. The pace is ideal, with plenty of time to think, lots of challenging questions and support when you need it. The Parisian backdrop really helped me get away from my day to day concerns and focus.” Retreat client.
