Shell, WY, May 30, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- The Western Challenge Executive Development Seminars will be held at The Hideout at Flitner Ranch during the summer of 2007.
Frank Bennett, Director of The Western Challenge announced today in Wickenburg that he will be conducting seminars this summer at The Hideout at Flitner Ranch in Shell, Wyoming. “It’s too hot down here on the desert during the summer months to ask people to spend all day learning to communicate with a horse in a corral. Since the unique nature of our training requires us to locate at a guest ranch, we looked around the North Country for the highest quality, best run Guest Ranch we could find. We settled on The Hideout in Shell Wyoming, as the place to locate our new series of summer seminars.”
The Flitner family who runs The Hideout Guest Ranch, has just completed the restoration of an historic guest ranch adjacent to their main facility to be used as a corporate retreat center. Previous Guests here where Hemingway, Owen Wister and Theodore Roosevelt. “When we saw Trapper Creek we knew it was perfect for our corporate clients. The Flitners have transformed a rustic guest ranch into a luxurious modern facility without losing any of its historic western charm. The surrounding Big Horn Mountain ranch country is an unspoiled, dramatic western landscape, a perfect retreat for corporate executives.”
Peter De Cabooter, nephew of Paula Flitner, one of the owners, joined The Hideout’s management team after an International Corporate career. During his corporate life, Peter has used The Hideout at Flitner Ranch, on a regular basis as an exclusive setting and experience for unique Corporate Events and Seminars. "I have attended many corporate events, seminars, clinics, trainings, etc. and got frustrated with what is out there. Leveraging this unique environment of the West, Ranching, tradition, the 100-Year old Flitner Ranch and especially horses in Corporate Retreats and Seminars has become a passion we want to share.
When it comes to the expectations of our Guests at The Hideout, they are strongly experience oriented. And because of the demographics of our Guests, they have high standards and expect this experience to be unique, authentic and re-energizing from within. When we started talking to Frank and his team, we knew instantly that the right passion, intention and chemistry was there, which we where looking for. We are very fortunate to be able to work with Frank and his team."
At its home base on the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, The Western Challenge has been conducting management-training seminars in advanced communication techniques for the past ten years. Hundreds of companies have attended these one–of-a-kind trainings where communicating with horses reveals the inner skills common to all charismatic communicators.
