Norman Grater rofile photoMaster Your Message has been a very insightful and intensive strategic deep dive into the future steps I need to take to grow my business.

Norman Graeter, Founder of Be Yourself Academy

I’m so excited because i’ve now got the clarity and confidence around how to speak to people about what I do. I’m so clear now about my mission, what I do, how I would like to contribute to people’s lives and my vision. It’s all thanks to Master Your Message, so if you are thinking about attending, stop thinking and just do it. Your life will never be the same again!

Your Agenda For 3 Intensive Days Of Transformational Brand Building!

DAY 2... Master Your BRAND Message

8:15am - 9:15am

Breakfast will be served in the main house and is a great time for the group to set intentions for the 3 days ahead.

9:30am - 1pm

Your Story & Vision...
Your story and vision are the essential foundational elements, upon which the strongest and most sustainable brands in the world are built.

clients-magnet cartoonA fluffy or unclear story and vision will see your business wander aimlessly, inconsistently and unproductively toward a destination you don’t want to end up in. Make it succinct and compelling however, and you’ll not only attract a strong following of loyal customers and brand advocates who believe in the same cause as you. You’ll also achieve your goals in a much faster period of time, because you’ll know EXACTLY what you are moving towards building.

By the time you go to lunch, you’ll have the core messages of your compelling brand story together, which will lead you to the creation of your vision in the afternoon.

Everything you do over the course of these three days is leading from one thing to another that can be used across your landing pages, emails, website, videos, social media, public speaking engagements and of course marketing materials. cartoon climbing steps on red carpetYou will also be using the work you have done in the morning to springboard you into your Mission statement and pitch on day 2, which will create much faster conversions with everyone your brand connects with in future.

Travel and Other Stuff...


Dinard - 1 hour 15 mins away

  • Stansted to Dinard (
  • East Midlands to Dinard (
  • Luton to Dinard (

Rennes - 1 hour 30 mins away

  • Southend to Rennes (

Brest - 2 hours away

  • London City Airport to Brest (


Portsmouth to St Malo (
This is our preferred option, so you don't have to go through the hassle of weight limits on what you can take back when you’ve made things in the studio out here! It does take longer because you travel overnight, but it’s worth it. You usually get on the ferry around 7.15pm and it leaves at 8.15pm, so you don't lose a day. You can have dinner, watch cabaret, shop and go down to your cabin for a good night sleep. Then wake up, have breakfast and drive off around 8.45am all nice and refreshed! We are only about 1hr and 15 minutes from the port. Getting back, ferries usually leave around 10.30am to Portsmouth.

Portsmouth to Caen (
Caen takes around 2.5 hours from the port to the cottage. Many people prefer to travel to and from Caen, as they have three to four ferries going back and forth every day, as opposed to just one per day to and from St Malo.

Eurotunnel (
You can take the Eurotunnel from Dover to Calais and drive to the holiday cottage. Be warned though that it’s around 6.5 hours to drive this particular route!


Lamballe Station
The closest rail station to the cottage is Lamballe station, which is around 30 minutes away.

Transfers to and from the cottage:

If you need transfers to and from the airport or station, please let us know if you haven't already. It's just £45 return to the airport and £20 return to the station. All we need to know is your time of arrival and time of departure.

Other Bits And Bobs...

Dietary Requirements

If you have any special dietary requirements, please let us know, so we make sure to include or avoid what you tell us!

On-Site Facilities:

There is a washing machine on site and wifi, although expect it to be slow as you are going to be right in the heart of the Bretton countryside, where we get around 1 meg of broadband! This has never been a problem however, as it will do you the world of good to be disconnected from the world for a few days as you work on yourself and your own business.

Forewarned is forearmed, so if you have any videos or Facebook LIVE sessions you want to deliver while you are over here, the morning is best to do them!

Bringing Partners Or Family With You:

There are plenty of things to do if you want to bring a partner or family with you. There’s a swimming pool and games barn, with a full size snooker table, pool, table football, table tennis and other games to play in there. There is also a hobby farm, so make sure you save all your scraps to feed the animals, as they love extra treats!

If you are planning to bring others with you, it is best to book early though so we can arrange for you to have one of the double rooms, or even the small holiday cottage to yourself as space is limited.

If you have any other questions, please let us know!
