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.
The human firewall with Robert May – Southampton (25 January 2018)
An opportunity to experience the Academy at an inspirational day at the De Vere New Place Hotel, Southampton on Thursday 25th January from 08:00 to 16:30 with Robert May and where you will engage in a peer group board session with other leaders like yourself.
Our day will start with Robert May: a TEDx speaker and the Ambassador for Cyber Security for the Institute of Directors. He is also Chairman of the IoD in Surrey, Managing Director of Ramsac Limited and he is dedicated to making IT simple. Rob was ranked number 26 in the 2017 Top 100 Global SME Influencers. He also runs a business school within Ramsac, a vehicle to grow and develop people and our economy’s future leaders. He has the freedom of the City of London and has twice exercised his right to walk sheep over London Bridge. He is an award-winning entrepreneur who started his first business when he was twelve. Most recently he was named as the first honorary lifetime member of the Cloud Industry Forum for his contributions to the sector. Rob makes complex subjects straightforward by using real life examples, humour and pragmatism. He is passionate about his work, positive about life and committed to helping people understand and grow.
There is also the opportunity to meet other successful CEOs like you who are wrestling with similar challenges. Find out how you can share and learn from them and come away with some answers. To experience the peer group first-hand and what it delivers, attendees come along with a genuine business challenge and see how a variety of opinions, experiences and different perspectives can really impact on your decision making, direction and growth.
