Ah Mindset Camp. What can I really say about Mindset Camp other than, if you’re not a Mindsetter, you can’t truly appreciate what it means to attend one of Marc Schmoeger’s highly curated events. With attendees flying in from as far away as Seattle, Washington, and Melbourne, Australia, this is a true testament to the draw of this incredible group of people.

There are no speakers, no presentations, not a single powerpoint to be found, and definitely no security, coat check, or queues for the loo. Basically, it’s removing all downsides of the best conference you’ve ever been to, transporting all the good bits to an exotic location, and packing it full of some of the best people you’ll ever have the chance to network, dine, and soak up the sun with.

This was the second Mindset Camp I had the honour and privilege of attending (be sure to check out the Mallorca edition), and Marc upped the game a notch by transporting us all to a magnificent complex just outside of Syracuse, Sicily, the Borgo Pantano Hotel. You might think that with a strict “no-genda” policy, we might all turn to our screens and crank out some work, but with incredible food and drink, a stunning pool, and engaging conversations, … I’ll take enjoyment over email any day. Especially these three.

To add a bit of flair to the weekend, David Akinjise organised a day trip to a nearby vineyard, and I have to admit, I’ve never felt more Don Corleone.

But wait…it doesn’t stop there, as Jonathan MacDonald and Lilian Laei serenaded the camp after dinner on the second evening, including a specially written song, Mindset, whereby they summed up the experience in words that I can’t even begin to describe. #tearjerker.

And as a seasoned professional, I never go anywhere without my portrait setup, and I managed to convince more than a Mindsetter to join me in making some visual magic. This time around, we even have a professional stylist aboard. Big thanks to Emma for making these beautiful people look even better. …and for capturing a few rare images of me. 🙂

Schmoegl…I salute you, and to my fellow Mindsetters….can’t wait to see you all again!

Enjoy, and until the next shoot – Dan
