We design workshops for teams or groups of individuals to address the needs of your organisation.



our purpose, your possibilities...


Here at The Expert Leader, we know that every person has the capacity to lead and that great leadership can occur at any level in an organisation. Experts, and those with specialist domain knowledge are critical to the success of most organisations – but many don’t realise the power they already have to lead and influence others.


When that power is cultivated, experts and specialists can have a transformative impact on their organisation’s mission and culture. When that power is ignored or suppressed, organisations risk missing out on opportunities to achieve significant results, or lose incredibly valuable specialist resources entirely.

In our programs and workshops, we focus on the values and strengths of the individual. We believe that a tailored, individual approach is the secret to helping experts unlock their personal power, to amplify their impact across their organisation, sector, and profession. We know that changing the world for just one person can have an impact that is felt across an entire organisation, and we have helped individuals to, quite literally, change the world.


We draw on a combined 50 years’ experience building and leading teams, and developing and empowering leaders, to develop practical solutions grounded in reality.
