What's Included:

Full Day Workshops

The programme consists of three, two-day sessions. Each day is focused on a core topic, offering insights and debate from entrepreneurship experts.

1:1 Support

Taking on the personal branding challenge takes courage. You will be exploring new ideas and concepts in a voyage of discovery. It is almost inevitable that you will be overwhelmed by the array of new ideas and opportunities presented to you.

You will not be left in isolation. You will receive regular support through 1:1 coaching and feedback to guide you and support you through your journey.


At each session you will receive a topic-specific workbook. These workbooks provide you clarity and structure and a consistent place to keep notes and ideas. The workbooks also contain useful resources and provide a convenient aide-memoire during and after the programme.

You will also have access to your own portal which includes additional tools and resources.

Accountability Groups

We also encourage you to form ‘Accountability Groups’ with other candidates on the programme. During this process you will regularly ‘check-in’ with your peers to provide mutual support, advice, and inspiration.

Annual Mastermind Group Membership

During your six months on the programme, many candidates find they have formed some very strong bonds with other members of the group. To maintain that dynamic, you will have the opportunity to join an alumni ‘mastermind’ group. Every two months you will meet for a morning to use the group’s combined expertise to help resolve each other’s’ business challenges.
