John WebsterNon Executive Chairman
John has worked with Thomas for 15 years. Thomas applied some of John’s approach in 2006 on a business restructure. This became an award nominated piece of work.

From that point John and Thomas joined forces and Thomas encouraged John to condense the last 35 years of his pioneering work in applied executive psychology into a 2 day executive program.

We ran this program several times at Ashridge Business School and have trained some of the best executives and CEOs in the UK.
