A team on a mission
The Ivy House team have dedicated their careers to enabling others to become extraordinary leaders and create extraordinary lives. Led by Elke Edwards – founding partner of the multi-award-winning executive development company, Blue Sky Performance Improvement – we have seen what happens when talented people with a drive to succeed are given life-changing knowledge.
We turn leadership development on its head; broadening the concept of leadership, teaching different skills and doing it earlier – at a time in a person’s life when it really can make all the difference.
Our big vision is to give this opportunity to the leaders of the future, worldwide.
