Steve Robinson – (Audit Partner) Grant Thornton
“What I really value about our Leaders Group is getting away from day to day business and having quality time to myself. My fellow Leaders Group Members have now become ‘business friends” and we have all gained enormous benefits from bouncing ideas off each other. Also, taking business colleagues to the expert speaker workshops has enabled us to work together on plans to improve the way we run our business. I strongly recommend Membership to leaders of all sizes of business.”
John Smith – (CEO) Ametek
“We’ve got a great thing going here. When I get to the meetings I know why I value them so much – it’s time out with like minded colleagues on a confidential basis”.
Jon Thorpe – (Joint MD) ACS 365
“The Leaders Group has provided the best return in our Training and Development budget in the fifteen years since our inception”
Andy Lawrence – (MD) Maxims Logistics
“The Leaders Group allows you to stop and take time out of the business for reflection. I feel more measured, thoughtful and enjoy the environment, I also find it a confidence boost as I find I have similar problems to others and it helps avoid the ‘bunker mentality’”.
Steve Pentland – (CEO) Generator Systems
“In the recent round of cut-backs which we, like many others, have undertaken in this new economic era, I fought tooth and nail to keep The Leaders Group cost item in our budget. The time to think clearly about key business and strategic issues has proved invaluable in terms of right decisions made and tangible value on the bottom line.”
Martin Hill – (Managing Partner) Tollers LLP
“I always look forward to the Leaders Group days because of the high quality and variety of speakers. The advice and knowledge of my peers, all facing similar challenges and opportunities for their own businesses, is invaluable”.
Alasdair McLeish – (COO) Opal Telecoms (Division of Carphone Warehouse)
“It’s a chance to learn from others and their experiences, with the opportunity to participate in solving their problems. As a leader, the re-assurances of colleagues are a great help and give me confidence in what I’m doing”.
Lucy McGibbon – (HR Director) Sundial Group
“It is the only 24 hour period in my diary which is for me. Afterwards I feel refreshed and my inspiration renewed. From a business point of view it makes me look at things differently”
Jason Brice – (MD) The Redwood Partnership
“We see each other as business friends and I have a team of non-exec Directors advising me. They are a great help, support and comfort; they’re there for me when I want them.”
