In these challenging times, do you need to build a better team of Strategic Leaders?
We know that the current climate is difficult, that many companies are cutting costs and concerned for their survival, but all through lockdown, we haven’t stopped coaching, delivering virtual classrooms and webinars and helping our clients to think differently in order to ensure the survival of their businesses. The coming year will demonstrate the need for outstanding leaders to navigate the challenges and, in many cases, only the most resilient and agile of businesses will survive. If you’re facing the toughest marathon of your life, now is not the time to stop training and building your physical and mental capability. The same goes for businesses. And so we are thrilled to announce the launch of our 4th Cohort of the Morgan James Consulting, Strategic Leadership Programme in September 2020.

Don’t Take Our Word for It – This is What Our Graduates Say About the Programme
“Attending the Strategic Leadership Programme run by Morgan James Consulting has given me the tools and inspiration to equip me to make a real impact on my company. Whether you are newly appointed director or an MD who is looking for a fresh perspective, I would highly recommend this programme!”
Managing Director, Colour In Media
“Coming from a 20 year construction background I am very one dimensional in my way of thinking and some might even say, dated. I have found the course to be far reaching in terms of its contents, and have enjoyed being part of such a warm and welcoming group of business leaders, who are experiencing a lot of the issues that I had thought to be unique to our company. It is fantastic to learn about new approaches and share ideas with likeminded people. Strategic Leaders has led me to explore different avenues with my staff and clients and has brought success with it, due to mainly approaching things from a different angle. I want to thank every tutor involved and applaud you for great work you guys do. You have completely changed my approach to leadership.”
