International leadership development

“This programme really provides a once in a lifetime challenge, taking people right out of their comfort zone allowing them to experience what it takes to lead the transformation of a business outsides the confine of their own organisational structure”.
Melanie Freeman, Co-founder and Director

“Life changing” has been the most recurring comment from those who have come on our programme. Do you want to show yourself and others what you are made of? Step up to this unique opportunity and make an invaluable contribution. Mentor a businesses in a developing economy, and at the same time refine your own critical business skills. It’s win win!

Whether you are a senior manager or have just a few years’ experience we will carefully match you with an emerging business in Swaziland, Southern Africa, where you will spend a week working together on a key business improvement project. Whether it’s the simplicity of life, or the warmth of Africa, our programme offers you an experience that can bring a shift in thinking, get you back to what really matters and provide meaning and purpose to your own work environment. How we work with people makes all the difference to whether we are truly effective. By working with a business for an intense period of time in an unfamiliar environment, this programme makes you reflect on your leadership expertise and hone your relationship skills.

“This week was brilliant for a number of reasons, but mainly because it took me out of my comfort zone and challenged me in different ways. Visiting Swaziland was a humbling experience and one that I will remember fondly.”
Participant from 2015

“I’d just like to say a big thank you to you all for an amazing week! It has been so helpful for us to have the time, input and expertise of our mentor and we very much appreciate it. We can now use our website and social media to promote our products much more effectively.”
