Executive summit or company retreat

We are trying to plan our first annual executive summit next month. Our dealer principal got the idea from an Entrepreneur group tthat recommended that we do it each year. It is basically a company wide retreat that is separate from any normally scheduled meetings and separate from your annual forecasting. It is done once a year somewhere off site and is supposed to be a 1-2 day retreat. The purpose of it is to define yourself as a company, set goals, and strategize for the following year so everyone from the company is on the same page.

We are doing it in about a month. I was wondering if any dealers out there do something similar and if they have seen any positve or negative results from it. If so, what was covered in the meeting and what do you recommend?
