For new managers and senior leaders




Executive Presence.png











A brilliant trainer, clearly very knowledgeable in the field, so I knew I was in good hands. There was loads of space for honest, open conversations which led to further understanding around different leadership perspectives and approaches. I really enjoyed the session and am looking forward to sharing my learnings with the team.


An immensely useful, action focused and considered leadership course that far exceeded my expectations and delivered on all the objectives I had hoped for. I would recommend the course unreservedly.



I have had a lot of training across my career and this is definitely an absolute highlight of all of them. I have learnt so much more in the last two days, than I have in a very long time. Our trainer was such a wonderful, inviting, and open person who easily created an environment of trust to get the most out of everyone. It has reignited a spark of passion for my role and excitement for what's to come. I would love to do it again!
