Adventures in January 2016

By | Maria Matarelli, Travels | No Comments

A lot of great cities are on the travel list for January to kick off 2016.

9 cities across a few countries with 3 islands and a cruise.. There has been a trend in the last few years with more and more conferences being held on cruise ships. We host the Boardroom Cruise every year in the last week of January. This year, we leave out of Ft. Lauderdale and stop to visit Aruba, Grand Turk, and Curacao Islands. The cruise sells out each year, but we will have up the registration soon for 2017 – You are invited to join us!

I rather enjoy this conference on a cruise ship trend and I bet you will too!

Agile Marketing in the Caribbean

By | Agile Marketing, Maria Matarelli, Travels | No Comments

I had the privilege of speaking at a marketing event on a cruise ship to Cozumel, Mexico to a group of business owners from the Tampa Bay Business Owners group.

Tampa Bay Cruise Presentations

I spoke on Agile Marketing and this was one of the first formal presentations as we unveiled case studies of the incredible results we have seen our clients get when applying the Agile techniques to Marketing, the same techniques that we have seen such incredible results in product development and software development.

The coolest format of this trip is that we left out of the Tampa port and had a day at sea, then a day of excursions in Cozumel, Mexico, then another day at sea to return to Florida. On the days at sea, we had a line up of expert speakers and then the conversations while lounging on the beach were around application of these processes and strategies. I can’t think of much of a better way to hold a conference or event!!

The view in Cozumel was just amazing!

There were so many great networking opportunities and so much learning of new strategies and techniques – all in one of the coolest environments!

We are heading on our next cruise in January 2016 – the Boardroom Cruise where we will be talking about more business strategies and marketing techniques! You won’t want to miss this!!

Ziplining through Isla Roatan, Honduras

By | Travels | No Comments

On the Boardroom Cruise in January 2015, one of our stops in the Caribbean was at Isla Roatan, Honduras where we went zip lining through the forest. It was an amazing experience through a forest of trees and overlooking the water and beach as we zig-zagged through the course. The slow-motion in this video shows that I didn’t actually kick over the zip line guide… there was just a lot of momentum…


The Boardroom Cruise is an annual event that emerged from the original Boardroom on the Beach group started by Maria Matarelli at Clearwater Beach, Florida, bringing business consulting to the beach for business owners and entrepreneurs to discover new strategies and techniques for rapidly growing their business. Join us on our next cruise in 2016 from January 23 – 31 where we set sail from Fort Lauderdale, FL for a Special 9-Day Voyage to the Exotic Southern Caribbean islands of Grand Turk, Aruba and Curacao! Each day is filled with just a few hours of targeted strategy sessions and the rest of the trip is an incredible blast with shore excursions and fun and relaxation on the cruise ship! We are partnering with a group of over 400+ marketing professionals, sharing some of the latest online marketing strategies. The cruise sold out this last year, so grab your cabin now while its still available! We would love to have you join us!
