Breakthrough Leadership

We tailored our flagship ILM Recognised Strategic Leadership programme for Premier Foods to support a shift in the business from being trading-driven to marketing-led. The programme resulted in significant financial benefits, cost savings and innovations as well as improved collaboration and engagement, winning the prestigious Food Industry Award for best in class leadership development.

The Awards were presented by Justin King, Chief Executive of J Sainsbury, and he said: “Premier Foods Breakthrough leadership programme is using highly robust methods and content to prepare leaders for bigger roles, to build effective cross-functional teams, and to shift the company from being trading-driven to be marketing-led.”

As part of providing consultancy support for major operational and culture change programme in the Cambridge Research Office (CLEER), we designed a bespoke leadership programme.

  • Increases in all measures of culture particularly Innovation, Strategic Thinking, Risk Taking and Trust
