Event Details


Getting the best out of yourself, the leader

Session led by Dr David Fraser, Success for Leaders


Success as a leader requires an ability to bring out the best in other people in a sustainable way. Frequently, our presence and example is what makes the difference, over and above our actions.


In these practical, highly participative workshops, experienced change agent, business leader and author, Dr David Fraser, will transform your ability to lead effectively and inspirationally in times of change and growth, bringing together the tangible and intangible dimensions so vital to success – and yet so rarely brought together.


After participating in these workshops, as a series or picking and choosing, you will have the building blocks to take your leadership ability to a new level and achieve the results you seek more easily, more quickly, and with greater assurance.
