Inspire 2015 is an opportunity to meet with other leaders and find out what it takes to be a best in class company

Ever wondered how you could create an outstanding organisational culture where your purpose, vision, values, leaders and your employees are all aligned to relentlessly push boundaries, drive innovation, achieve great results and challenge the status quo? 

Most leaders toy with this question on a regular basis and often feel frustrated that the answer seems too far removed to embrace the challenge.

‘Inspire 2015’ is an opportunity to meet with other leaders and find out what it takes to be a best in class company.  Our intimate one-day event, set in the heart of Bath will allow you the time to press the pause button long enough to enlighten, stimulate and inspire your thinking on how you can shape your business and create a dynamic culture for the future.

When you attend Inspire you will get the chance to go behind the scenes of the not-for-profit modern and ethical housing and support organisation, Curo, which perfectly demonstrates how you can consciously achieve an inspiring business culture!

Our expert panel of speakers are experienced in leading people and businesses through change; their vast wealth of knowledge and expertise will not only inspire your thinking but also enable you to tap into your core strengths to influence your ideas when you return to your desk.

Inspire is a leadership forum for real business and personal growth.  The practical format of the day will enable you to not only hear from our speakers but also take part in workshop sessions where you can focus solely on you and your business needs.

Once the dust has settled Inspire is also giving each leader the opportunity to continue to build on the momentum of the day with a one to one coaching session with our leadership coach Liza Hughes after the event.
