In her career as a behavioural change expert, executive coach and leadership facilitator, Gillian has worked with many large organisations in the UK, Europe, Australia, the US and the Middle East. Her extensive experience of working with leaders means that she understands the qualities that true leaders possess and the importance of balancing productivity with emotional intelligence.

Senior Leadership Team, BAE Systems
"Fantastic week, highly thought-provoking, good to reinforce some good behaviours, great to replace the bad ones. Really pleased the course focused more on people and behaviours than typical PM tools/techniques/processes. A great focus on the emotional side of leadership. Great for making me think about my own behaviours."

Do not miss this opportunity to benefit from Gillian's experience in working with global leaders to further develop and grow your leadership skills.
