We are a team of global mentoring and development experts supported by first-class programme managers, researchers and communications experts.

We have supported over 3,500 mentors and mentees. Our schemes are rooted in the belief that no matter what our choice of career, we can all benefit profoundly from escaping our silos and engaging with different perspectives. 


Moving Ahead, focusses on the development of male and female leaders via three pathways:  




We design, implement and support mentoring schemes – from schoolroom to boardroom - and with a range of specific aims that include developing diversity, retention, talent, cross- organisational knowledge and networking. Coaching and mentoring programmes, coaching strategy and assessment, talent and leadership development, career management



Athlete transitions

We are working with key stakeholders to design and implement a first-of-its-kind athlete transition programme that will support professional sportsmen and women as they move on from full-time athletic careers.

an elite group of individuals who have dedicated their lives to performing at the highest level.
