The Highly Effective Leader (2 Day Webinar)

Our highly experiential leadership programme “The Highly Effective Leader” can be delivered online as a series of six 90-minute webinars (3 webinars each day).

We deliver the webinars on our Zoom platform as the Zoom features (chat, breakout rooms, polling etc) ensure the webinars are highly interactive and engaging. (We can also deliver the webinars on your preferred platform).

We provide electronic copies of any handouts/profiles (in advance of the webinar) along with the link and instructions for joining the webinar and this can be forwarded to each attendee. After the webinar we provide a copy of the PPT slides (to forward to attendees) a list of the attendees who attended and screenshots of the attendee feedback.

The webinars work best with between 10-20 attendees in terms of maintaining interaction. Attendees can participate from anywhere in the world.

This two-day programme costs £1250 plus VAT per day, £2500 plus VAT for the two days (working out at £83 per delegate per day with 15 delegates).
