I can go to the group with a pretty thorny problem, usually one that I couldn’t tackle with anyone at work, and gain unbiased but caring opinion.
As a leader it needs to start with you, spending time and money on yourself is a good return for your business.
Being part of the group has changed the way I think and communicate resulting in increased productivity from my team.
It’s the most valuable day I ever spend out of the business a month.

In the increasingly fast-paced world of business leadership it is our duty to always be working on the gap between our conscious incompetence so that it becomes our unconscious competence – the Academy bridges that gap and allows me to face our challenges with confidence.
Speaking for the Academy for Chief Executives enables me to work with business leaders who are keen to learn and are able to act on suggestions that are made in the sessions. I have the privilege of both challenging and being challenged by some of the UK’s best business leaders.
I have been an Academy Chairman for 16 years now and can honestly say the quality of my life improved from the moment I became involved. I learnt more, got inspired more and work with a wonderful group of people who, with the support we provide, are succeeding more all the time and are great to be with.
Having been a member for five years, I wanted to bring the Academy to South Yorkshire to give local leaders an opportunity to benefit from membership in the way I had. Being a Chairman is a real privilege that enables me to co-learn with my members, and continue to strive to be the best.
