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.
May 18–20, 2017 & October 19-21, 2017
3X Multiplier Retreats give you a scheduled refuge from your usual daytoday and will become something to look forward to throughout the year. There’s no doubt the synchronicities from putting together some of the brightest minds in different and unusual experiences will develop new resources, capabilities, and connections you didn’t even know about.
- Growth sessions are a mix of informal conversations, topic-focused panels, big-idea presentations, and roundtable discussions. And that’s not even counting the powerful relationships and meaningful connections that happen outside the room. It’s truly anything but business as usual. Plus, gain unique insights from participating icons such as Sara Blakely, Tony Hsieh, Russell Simmons, and many more.
- Impact sessions give Mavericks a platform for mentoring and brainstorming work on big issues like developing self-sustaining economic engines for villages we built in Haiti, helping develop educational programs for protecting the headwaters of the Amazon, aiding returning vets with entrepreneurial opportunities, and global issues such as the declining bee population, the recent refugee crisis, and many more. The Maverick Impact Fund is also used to help implement the real-world solutions derived during the 3X Retreat.
- Experience – Mavericks get to partake in unique adventures, excursions,and experiences to help reenergize and rejuvenate. Make sure you’re up for little bit of Maverick mayhem. What has this day looked like at past events? How about flying water jet packs or speeding around a track in a racecar? Or exhilarating skydiving, roller derby, and daredevil circus training? Or sometimes the experience celebrates your more creative side, like painting, graffiti work, or spoken word poetry with world-famous artists.
Maverick M3 Summit
December 1-3, 2017
The Maverick M3 Summit is held in revitalizing locations around the world with a line-up of exceptional business luminaries and experiences. Members come together to renew themselves and set up an even bigger answer to the question of “What’s next?” for your business and personal contribution.
This annual gathering of Mavericks and icons is totally unlike any other “normal” business conference.
August 17-19, 2017
Imagine heading to sleep away camp with a group of exceptional entrepreneurs to learn, play, and make a difference together. What can you expect? Well, take everything that is great about camp, and add an amazing community of people and incredible “Camp Counselors.” Your “Camp Counselors” are the experts and top business minds you’d normally see delivering keynotes at seminars – but not here.
You won’t be sitting in boring presentations or spending countless hours in a generic meeting room. Instead, you’ll actually be taking part in hands-on learning, workshops, and meaningful conversations throughout the three days spent together.

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.

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!)
