About InTah

EAT SLEEP WORK REPEAT?

Do you ever feel like you slog all week, just to get to the weekend, then feel too tired to really enjoy your time ‘off’, only to prepare yourself for another 70-hour work week?

Have you been sitting on a Million-pound idea for too long, convincing yourself that you’ll do something about it once you get promoted/richer/happier/married* (delete as applicable)?

Do you sometimes just want to pack it all in, throw away your iPhone and go to a desert island where you can just ignore the rest of the world?

Ever questioned why society asks us to work for 60% of our life, only to not have the energy to really enjoy our retirement?

You are not alone!

Many of us struggle with stress and overwhelm due to trying to follow someone else's journey, instead of our own. By uncovering your purpose, being inspired and taking time to prioritise yourself, you can live a more fulfilling lifestyle and prevent some of these, now commonplace, issues.

Let's build recuperation, wellbeing and exploration, not just into our time off, but into our employment.Let your employer provide you with the opportunity to develop yourself, network and learn from others!

Providing EXPLORATION, SELF-DEVELOPMENT and WELLBEING activities, the only limit is your imagination!

InTah’s experiences will range from Conferences to Expeditions, Retreats to Mentoring, Award Ceremonies to Loyalty Schemes to help you discover your purpose and BE INSPIRED!

And if you still aren’t convinced. . .

The struggles of mental ill health

Mental illness is the second-largest source of burden of disease in the UK with 1 in 4 in the UK experience mental health issues and a whopping 792 Million affected worldwide.

Burnout has now been classified as a disease by the World Health Organisation with 74% of people saying they have felt so stressed they have been overwhelmed or unable to cope.

  • 51% of adults who felt stressed reported feeling depressed and 61% felt anxious
  • 46% reported an unhealthy diet, 29% started to drink to excess and 16% started or increased smoking.

Burnout is a global problem, with 602,000 workers suffering from work-related stress, depression or anxiety.

  • £8.4 billion a year in sickness absence - the average employee taking seven sick days per year, of which 40% are for mental health, or 72 million lost working days per year
  • £15.1 billion a year in reduced productivity a year – ‘presenteeism’ accounts for 1.5 times as much working time lost as absenteeism and costs more to employers because it is more common among higher-paid staff
  • £2.4 billion a year is spent replacing staff who leave their jobs because of mental ill health.

Figure 1

Research shows that 40% of people with a mental health condition do not feel comfortable talking to their boss about it, yet prevention and early detection of issues could enable employers to save 30+% of these costs – at least £8 billion per year.

Whether you fancy building a school in Ecuador, scuba diving off the coast of Mozambique, providing business coaching in Mongolia or trekking in Bhutan, InTahhas got something for everyone.

So, what is InTah?

As I progressed from University, I struggled to find anything that was aimed at professionals rather than gap-year students, or that really homed in on the skills, learnt outside the classroom, to take back to my employer.

Whilst on a work trip, I was privileged enough to have the opportunity to spend a few days at LAKE TAHOE, where I encouraged my work colleagues to try new activities; I noticed that my team were re-energised, had built on their skills and working together in a way that would foster stronger functionality on return to work.

I was INSPIRED.... and so, the idea for InTah was born..... to inspire others to find their purpose!

The experiences will provide opportunities to adventure in new countries and locations, network with likeminded and driven professionals, undertake self-development and recuperation activities, going home feeling INSPIRED and ENERGISED.

From recycled products, eco-tourism, volunteer-work, socially responsible practices and SUSTAINABILITY built into every experience, you can adventure safe in the knowledge that you are also supporting a fantastic cause!

With more than six different themes to the trips and experiences, there will be something for anyone who is committed to investing in themselves and their future; whether it be a life reboot, understanding how you can implement sustainability into your home-life or workplace, or just to explore somewhere new and off the beaten track.

Once you've completed your adventure, the fun won't stop there; with membership to the InTah Tribe, you will become part of our loyalty scheme, giving you access to regular updates, motivational videos, innovative opportunities, mentoring and support.

You also have the option of becoming a member of our Rewards Scheme, with some of your favourite brands who align with our core values, featured alongside some AMAZING new startup companies to ensure we are supporting local businesses.

Our vision is to also get CPD/ELCAS registered, so that your employer can subsidise your adventure too!! What is there not to love!
