Learn to lead through change with a masterclass that offers practical tools and support for uncertain environments 

In most organisations, change is the new constant. Whether you're transforming your digital experience, restructuring your team, changing your operating model or adjusting service levels, odds are, you're in the middle of something big.

Ongoing ambiguity and uncertainty can corrode culture. People become fearful of what's next, and stop engaging in programmes and conversations that smell like loss.

But it doesn't need to be this way. Alicia McKay is a straight-talking change enthusiast with a toolkit full of practical exercises for your team. Help your leaders learn how to shift their mindset, tackle change head-on and keep their people connected in even the most challenging times.



Upskill your leaders in the basics of strategy and strategic planning 

Your strategic plan could be the biggest asset in your team, business or organisation - if you let it. But most plans are too broad in scope, weighted toward operations, and afraid of upsetting the apple cart.

Alicia specialises in driving the rapid-fire development of core strategic priorities for scattered teams. She'll teach your teams how to do things properly.

From organisational transformation at Crown Law to annual planning at ARUP, Alicia has supported hundreds of teams to get clear on what matters most - and motivated to take action.
