The Highly Effective Leader (2 Day Virtual Programme)

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

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

We provide electronic copies of any handouts/profiles (in advance of the workshop) along with the link and instructions for joining the workshop and this can be forwarded to each attendee. After the workshop 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 workshops 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 £1750 plus VAT per day, £3500 plus VAT for the two days. This works out at approx £110 per delegate per day with 16 delegates.
