Programmes & Workshops

My Lead Like Mary programme, based on my book, allows like minded leaders to meet and explore Mary's traits together.


Workshops take place in a tranquil environment in mid Staffordshire, ideal for reflective learning.


The workshops will:


Examine the principles of authentic leadership

Explore in detail Mary's leadership traits, with a focus on practical application

Allow ample time for reflection and personal action planning

Enable interaction with like minded leaders from a variety of backgrounds


The workshop fee is £299, including lunches and refreshments. Local overnight accommodation can be arranged



Why not book your place for these unique experiences and join dozens of other people applying Mary's powerful principles to their own leadership journey?
