In February 2009, the Resilient Organisations research programme hosted a three day ‘Resilience Retreat’ in the beautiful setting of Flock Hill, Canterbury. Surrounded by mountains and lucky to strike fantastic weather, the three days were filled with much discussion and debate. The first half of the Retreat was attended by the core Resilient Organisations research team. The team was then joined by invited industry guests and others from Australia and New Zealand. The programme and list of attendees are in Appendices A and B. The purpose of the retreat was to: • trigger thought-provoking discussion about what resilience is and how to achieve it; • discuss recent research with practitioners and get their feedback on its usefulness; and • work with practitioners to identify areas of future research need. This report provides a snapshot of the issues discussed together with some food for thought on how research might address looming resilience issues.
