    — Colin Lyons, Management Development, Howdens Joinery, UK

    — Gustav Henman, CFO and Founder, Beetroot, Ukraine
  • “If you want to be agile, no matter how you do it, it all comes down to whether colleagues are open...whether they are appreciative with one another and help each other, and get the feeling that they are helped. What the Tuff Leadership Training does is about making sure that everything under the surface is being talked about and OK to be there. What it also does very well are the hard conversations. Not a lot of people are able to have real conversations, to give real feedback to colleagues.”

  • “The most magical days I've spent with the warmest, brightest, loveliest people in quite some time. Alvin Toffler wrote in “Future Shock” that a strong skill in the future will be Learn, Unlearn, Relearn. This has been the most unlearning and relearning thing I’ve ever experienced. Deeply moving learning experience and philosophy for leaders.”
    — Perry Timms, author, TEDx speaker, & founder of PTHR, UK
  • “Not an easy ride, but a challenging, thought provoking experience that will make you want to explore your potential.”
