Leadership First exists for leaders to learn, grow, connect and have fun.


We believe that leaders of an organisation must continue to demonstrate their commitment to personal development and appreciate its impact on business performance.  This is why we established and continue to evolve Leadership First.

Leadership First is a community that promotes a “mind-set approach” to long-term change. It was founded on the principle that the only way to create a sustainable, long-term performance uplift is by changing people’s thoughts and feelings and not by obedience.

Launched with a series of pilot events in 2016, Leadership First runs a series of engagement forums for people in leadership roles – specifically to help them to understand and drive sustainable long-term change, whilst improving overall business performance.

Already a must attend event for many organisations which believe in adopting a mind-set approach, Leadership First helps leaders come together to share experiences and to help them solve problems. Every event also provides a valuable opportunity to develop each person's business network. 

Leadership First features Jamil Qureshi. Aside from being Europe’s first Sports Psychologist for the victorious 2006 Ryder cup team, Jamil speaks around the globe on a mind-set approach to success and coaches several of the world’s leading sports people.
