Dream Retreat – The Disney Way – Review

Review by Jeff Merhige, Executive Director, Joe C Davis YMCA Outdoor Center/Camp Widjiwagan

YMCA of Middle Tennessee


Dream, Believe, Dare and Do has been a guiding philosophy in our management since being introduced to it by Bill Capodagli and Lynn Jackson. Recently Bill came to Nashville and led a day retreat we title Dream Retreat 2.0. He sparked the groups imagination and opened their minds to possibilities with his Innovate the Pixar Way keynote address.

Afterwards, he guided the group through storyboarding ways to elevate and improve our operation. Working with Bill accomplishes just that – sparking imagination and open-mindedness and following through to practical implementation steps that lead an organization to elevate and improve.

Working with Bill leads all to gain a firm grasp and appreciation of the Dream, Believe, Dare and Do philosophy.”
