Maverick members have access to truly transformational retreats, epic experiences, and adventures and impact trips that are unique combinations of growth, impact, and experiences. You’ll join other like-minded leaders to connect at a deeper level that can only occur outside the normal business settings.
Most entrepreneurs don’t realize the extent of their burnout and reduced energy and creativity that comes from being “always on.” Maverick gives you a reason (and the pragmatic ROI) to make time for reinvention, recharging, and rejuvenating yourself.
Necker Island Experience
As a Maverick Member you’re invited to join us on Necker Island, Sir Richard Branson’s private island paradise in the British Virgin Islands, with a group of global leaders and entrepreneurs to change business as a force for good. Together through our partnership, we’ve already helped raise over $2.9M in funds for Virgin Unite, the independent entrepreneurial foundation of the Virgin Group and the Branson family. Our involvement with the foundation has increased over the years due to our ongoing relationship and how much we all gain from our time together.

Expect the unexpected but it’s going to wonderfully weird and, obviously, cosmic! Surprises. Guests. Maverick Magic. Puppets? Who the heck knows what else but save the date. Only 50 spots to celebrate the big 5-0 with Yanik.
Past Events and Experiences
Maverick1000 members have privileged access to truly EPIC experiences and Maverick Business Adventures®. Imagine blasting 80mph through the Baja…experiencing a zero-gravity flight (like NASA astronauts do to prepare for space travel)…flying MiG jets in Russia…going on an African safari…swimming with Great Whites…attending the World Cup finals…driving a super exotic sports car 200 mph+…and scuba diving in between tectonic plates in Iceland.
Plus, each trip includes high-level business and growth sessions where you and the world’s top entrepreneurs confidentially share and brainstorm deep insights to help you to your next chapter.
These are just a few of the experiences Mavericks have been privileged to take part in, and there are even bigger ones coming up in the future. Nearly every EPIC experience is extremely small and intimate, so space is at a serious premium. However, as a member, you’ll have the first opportunity to secure your spot on these once-in-a-lifetime excursions.
“You accomplished your mission to get me to play again like a 9-year old.”

Conde Nast’s Portfolio recognized Maverick as “…re-imagining the business trip and bonding with their peers…Perhaps even more valuable than the daily business sessions are the bonds formed tighter than any networking event could ever conceive…”
And The Financial Times says “…Maverick is not just an adventure travel company. Rather, its trips bring like-minded entrepreneurs, chief executives and small business owners together to exchange ideas and also support the next generation of entrepreneurs.…”
“Schedule the fun stuff first because if you’re a type A, driven personality…and if you don’t pre-book and pre-pay and pre-commit to other people – then work will fill the void that remains. …Then you’ll realize you’ve overcommitted and over-scheduled…”
– Tim Ferriss
Think of this as a much needed “Recess for Entrepreneurs” or the play-day we don’t normally give ourselves permission for.
(Note: There’s been serious scientific study on play, and it has been proven to enhance creativity and innovation and provide deeper, more meaningful connections. Rest assured, there’s a good ROI reason for all of this!)
