Hear from our Alumni
Eddie Coombes, Chief Executive, Optima Care
Eddie believes that the structure of the Windsor Leadership programmes provide essential opportunities for personal and professional development. "A combination of my personal experience and shared knowledge via Windsor Leadership has enabled me to self regulate myself and make more informed decisions at a strategic level."
Rachel Mortimer, Chief Operating Officer, UK Government Investments (UKGI)
Meeting and learning alongside a range of different people was key to Rachel’s experience. "The course has really broadened my horizons and opened up a whole new network for me, which I have continued to use regularly since taking part in the course."
Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton, past Chief of the Air Staff
The experiences of his fellow participants and the similarities of their individual challenges taught him a huge amount and encouraged him to find new ways through his own challenges. "I have seen the value paid back over the years and encourage all aspiring leaders to grasp the opportunity to attend, with both hands."
Sarah Flannigan, Chief Information Officer, formerly at the National Trust
The sheer variety of participants was incredibly energising for Sarah and the fact that all their leadership challenges and issues were the same, no matter the sector, proved both validating and helpful. The opportunity to tangibly work through issues and receive grounded advice on reality - rather than hypothetical debate - was of great value.
The Very Reverend Vivienne Faull, Dean of York
When Dean Faull talks about the overall impact that the programme has had on her as leader, she talks about her increased confidence to contribute to her organisation’s rapid development. “It was so good to be with a peer group where there was support but not competitiveness. The outcomes were, for me, transformative.”
