In large companies building leadership capability at all organisational levels is an ongoing event... and it’s a fine balance between taking time out to build skills and ensuring that ‘business as usual’ continues.
Our team has extensive experience in the design and delivery of global leadership programmes, between us working for companies like Avon Cosmetics, Woodward Engineering, Formica, Standard Life, HSBC... and many many more.
More than anything, we know that if leaders aren’t secure and confident in their own abilities, they will operate from a place of emotion and self protection. If they ARE confident ....and capable... they can become the heroes of your business.
Your leadership development programme will be:
Underpinned by the latest research in leadership thinking, and both online and offline delivery methods.
Aligned with your strategy and competency framework
Focused on practical, behavioural and critical thinking skills
Delivered in a style relevant to your organisation (online, face to face or a combination)
Include training your in-house team to deliver, if required
Effective in delivering your learning objectives
Over the years we’ve worked with businesses large and small on a wide range of challenges, issues, and initiatives, providing consultancy, training and coaching.
Because our work is based on proven principles, we apply best practice thinking and techniques to your business and your leadership team, whatever your size or sector.
“Annabelle truly understands leadership development and is a great coach. In just a matter of an hour she helped me solve something I’ve been working on for two months.
If you’re looking for someone who understands what it takes to grow a team in both large and small organizations, I highly recommend you work with her: she has made an incredible impact on my team and I”
Founder of Business Marketing Engine
“Poised to expand, my team was nervous of change.
Our time working with Annabelle enabled each team member to communicate their fears and address their concerns without the discussion ever feeling ‘personal’.
Our aim was to focus on the path ahead. Working with Annabelle actually gave us much more than that - it helped us realize how far we had come as a team.
It was unexpectedly uniting; we spent time discussing where we were and how we had got there, and this gave us the springboard to plan our year ahead. Every member of the team contributed and every member gained valuable insights into others’ thinking.
I cannot recommend Annabelle’s approach highly enough”

“Entrepreneurship isn’t just about building a great team around you. It is also about getting the right guidance and mentoring along the way from people who know what it is like to tread in your shoes, people who can help you recognize your limitations and fill those gaps - people who can help you actualize the potential of the business through developing your capability as the leader. Annabelle is one of those people. I would thoroughly recommend her.”

"Annabelle looks beyond the obvious, sees what's really going on in a business and understands what it's like to grow from an entrepreneur into a business leader. Her advice and support have been incredibly valuable to my team and I as we've scaled up"

Annabelle has an ability to see the bigger picture and she draws on a depth of experience of working with large organizations and individual entrepreneurs over 20 years. She is not afraid to challenge and cut through to the key issues but does this in a kind and empowering way. The humor and energy she brings to the process is her trademark and makes working with her deeply enjoyable. I vividly remember coming off my first call with Annabelle full of enthusiasm and energy feeling more confident that I could overcome my challenges and I had someone in my corner who was right behind me. Annabelle is the real deal!
