The Story of

Think Outside

I purchased “Think Outside” as a retreat to be used by the employees, customers & vendors, but when I sold the company, I didn’t need a corporate retreat anymore.

Today we host outdoor waterfront weddings, corporate retreats & meetings, as well as, educational training (my own and those hosted by others).

Think Outside has become a premier Northern Michigan destination venue for events of all types.

What We Do

Think Outside ecompasses the venue in Northern Michigan and other enterprises that take place on- and off-site. 

The Lazy Manager

Jim Plouffe’s most recent business training workshop, based on his book “The Lazy Manager’s Unconventional Guide to Remarkable Results”.


Elope Up North

It doesn’t matter if it’s just the 2 of you or if it’s you and 200 guests, lakefront weddings are beautiful and truly magical on the northern shore of Lake Michigan.
