Reflections from Windsor Leadership Alumni
NIKKI HUMPHREY, SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, PEOPLE – VIRGIN ATLANTIC
Alumna of Women in Leadership (2013)
"The most significant thing that Windsor gave me was the ability to invest in myself. The programme had a huge impact in terms of my physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.."
JOHN VICKERMAN, FOUNDING DIRECTOR OF 3 (HUTCHISON 3G UK LTD)
Alumnus of 1997 October Initial Windsor Meeting
"Time seemed to stand still during my week at Windsor and I found I was able to slow down and allow the cloak of ‘I’ve got it sorted’ to drop. Being truly open and honest and no longer hiding behind a façade was a seminal moment for me."
Louise Donaghey, GLOBAL HEAD OF CUSTOMER SERVICE (DEFENCE), ROLLS ROYCE PLC
Alumna of Women in Leadership, September 2013
"The imposter syndrome had been a real challenge for me, but I now have a greater confidence born from the realisation that expressing a different viewpoint is actually a strength, and diversity of thought is actually appreciated by our leadership."
NICK CAMPOLUCCI, Head of Sales Development, McLaren Automotive Ltd
Alumnus NASLP, Oct 2012
"My first action, as a direct result of the programme, was to become a Governor at a local Primary school. My syndicate suggested that I could offer my skills and experiences and I was inspired to see the world through the eyes of others, rather than simply through a commercial lens. This was something I wouldn’t have even considered if my syndicate hadn’t prompted me and it’s been an eye-opening and enriching decision, especially in the field of budget setting and finances."
THE RT REVD RACHEL TREWEEK, BISHOP OF GLOUCESTER
Triple Alumna – 2005 Sep Emerging Strategic Leaders, 2008 Feb Developing Leaders and 2016 Nov Strategic Leaders Consultation
"Windsor allowed safe space for people to talk about significantly different perspectives with passion, often challenging and not agreeing, but respecting other viewpoints and sharing with integrity."
Simon Blake, Chief Executive of Mental Health First Aid England
Double Alumnus of Windsor Leadership – 2007 April Newly Appointed Strategic Leaders and 2011 February Experienced Leaders
"I drew on my time at Windsor to navigate the very emotionally-charged weeks whilst in the midst of the media frenzy. My focus was on communicating to people who needed to continue trusting our services. The language I used and the way I delivered the information during this time was critical."
Upcoming programme: 10 - 12 February 2021 (Developing Leaders Programme)
