Well, after you’ve read this lot, I reckon you’ll want to add participants, facilitators and even clients to this list. You see, since my last blog I’ve spent a few weeks “playing journalist” sourcing weird, wonderful and downright bizarre stories from the UX (User Experience) Community.

Twelve hand-picked candidates were sent a cryptic invitation telling them to pack their toothbrush, accompanied by a picture of ageing actor John Nettles. The next thing they knew, they were being flown to a charming yoga retreat in the middle of the countryside near Bergerac in France’s Dordogne. Before they had time to explore the converted barn or orchard, they were pulled into the first of many intensive workshops run by an external company. The moderators explained to the confused bunch that they were going to be taken on a personal journey over the next four days where they would get to know themselves – and each other – on a different level.
