“This programme has changed my life by helping me identify and tap into what I have to give. I feel equipped, I feel empowered, I feel confident.  Everybody should do this course.”

“We help people who are at a crossroads – students, those going through a quarter- or mid-life crisis, those wondering how to make the best of their careers – figure out where to go next in their lives. Through expert-led exercises, practical personal coaching, feedback and inspirational teaching, our motley crew of eight super-experienced coaches (including a hostage negotiator, an actress and a CNN presenter) lead you to:

Know yourself better
Make better choices
Find a better career
Be your best self



You’re going to spend well over 10,000 days of your life at work. Through two-day courses, half- and one-day workshops and bespoke on-site programmes, we show you how to make those really good days.
