If you are seeking to accelerate your career, these focused practical masterclasses help strengthen your leadership by developing a range of key skills from coaching to influencing, from communicating with impact to networking and more.


Themes for the Leadership Series were first identified from the Runway programme, where participants consistently highlighted similar areas for personal development.

These masterclasses are designed to help individuals lead more effectively, whether you are influencing key stakeholders, having more structured conversations around performance, networking more effectively or communicating and leading change in your team or organisation.

Delivered purely in house for organisations, many clients use the Leadership Series to complement existing talent programmes or as a follow-on activity after a Runway programme. These half-day sessions can be facilitated as off-the-shelf workshops but can also be tailored to the organisation and sector, using relevant case studies to the sector.


Workshops can be delivered as face-to-face or live online workshops. Existing masterclasses consider the following themes:
