Whereas a retreat that focuses on new sales techniques or conflict resolution in the workplace may be appropriate for a work day. If the subject matter is large, it may be appropriate to take place over several days. Where will the retreat be held in relation to where the guests will be coming from? If the retreat location is in a significant distance from where the attendees are traveling from, longer retreats are favorable.
