As an entrepreneur you often subconsciously hide yourself behind big words and agendas. You forget that there is an actual heart hidden within the daily machinery of success and drive. The Arc reconnected me to my mission and how important compassion and authenticity are even when working. It has simply been the best week of my life.
Chris | Tech Startup Co-Founder, Germany
The use of coaching methodology made The Arc a very powerful experience, as it allowed me to focus on my own mission and goals. Thanks to this experience, along with the post-event coaching, I was able to get started as an entrepreneur.

The Arc is the single most effective training I have attended. In terms of personal growth and understanding. I would highly recommend it to anyone in the pursuit of self-development.
Ronan | Social Entrepreneur, Ireland
This training is by far the most important in my life. It changed me for the better. What I underwent during The Arc made me stronger, made me believe in myself and my ability to change the world.
Katie | Educator, Bulgaria
Since it is very challenging and almost impossible to describe the feeling and state of mind I had after the Arc to friends and family I decided to put it in an simple phrase and leave the rest with my counterpart: The Arc has been the most important and valuable gift I have ever received in my life.
Jan | Founder & Programme Director of a Mentoring Company, Germany
A life changing experience that made me change my priorities and pushed me to act in order to follow my dreams. As simple as that 😉

Who is it for?

The Arc Ghent is a residential training event for young people who are…

  • willing to question the impact they have generated so far in their life,
  • curious to understand their limits and the edge of their comfort zone,
  • giving and empathetic to their peers / their surrounding,
  • certain that they could have a much better and greater impact, if _ _ _ [fill in the blank],
  • at some level sincerely wanting to inspire themselves and others.

This event is designed for everyone with the ambition to be an agent for change. Just that… maybe you haven’t really found out what inspirational message exactly it is you want to put out there. Or maybe… you kind of already DID shake hands with your inner calling, but something is holding you back to pursue your path of greatness. You are explicitly not required to bring any particular experience, career progress whatsoever! Just apply, bring yourself, your passions, your fears, your potential, your brain! We will love you no matter who you are.

When was the last time you were on a date with your life purpose?

Who do YOU dare to be and which IMPACT do you wanna stand for?

After The Arc you will have a clearer understanding on:

  • WTF your passion (YES, PASSION!) is that everyone says you are supposed to follow!
  • Which person you need to grow into if you want to have larger and deeper impact. Where you need to push the envelope.
  • How on earth you can get that done and what to do if self-doubt, laziness or impact-fatigue knock on your the door.

The Venue

The venue is beautifully located next to a small lake and hosts everything you need. It is close to Ghent, but you can also reach it from Brussels airport trough bus service (the long option) or through uber (45min, the shorter option). Just check GoogleMaps.

Please note that there is always a risk that the venue might need to be changed. Needless to say that – should this happen – you will be informed in due time. And that any alternative venue will be close to this one and of similar standards. 

Rooms will be shared. If that is an issue to you pls contact us and we will let you know how much of an additional price there will be for a single room (NB: This also depends on the number of registrations).

Address: Prullenbos/Boskabanne, Groenstraat 8, 9230 Wetteren, Belgium
