The world is changing and we have to better prepare our brightest talent to succeed – now and in the future. That’s why we’re on a mission to change how we develop talent.
Our programmes create extraordinary leaders – the kind of leaders people actually want to follow and pioneers who are equipped to lead us all into a better future.
Whether you’re looking to support your brightest students, most talented graduates or emerging leaders, our programmes don’t just nurture your brightest people; they will transform your results and build leaders who have the ability to change the world.
Ivy House In-House Programmes
Our in-house programmes are perfect for clients looking to create a tribe of skilled change-makers within their organisation, but with the benefits of being able to completely tailor a solution to their organisation’s needs.
Whether you’re looking to support your emerging leaders, graduates, apprentices or early-in-career talent, we’ll work with you to design a programme for groups of between 35-60 people, that deliver exceptional results for your organisation.
Ivy House Open Programmes
Our award-winning open programmes bring together a group of bright, driven future leaders from across a range of corporate organisations, charities and education.
They’re perfect for delegates who are looking to build an incredible external network, while accessing some of the most transformative personal and professional development around.

Our founder, Elke Edwards, brings the Ivy House mission to life with keynotes tailored to audiences as diverse as senior corporate leaders, teachers, pupils and parents in schools. Her frank and uplifting energy is instrumental in inspiring corporates and schools to think differently about how they develop the next generations to first lead themselves and then others.
“If we want a better world we need better leaders. This means transforming how we develop them. We need purpose-led, values-driven leaders who learn quickly and know how to create courageous and effective teams.”
