Strategy Away Days

Do you know it’s time for your next strategy away day with governors or senior leaders, but you’re disillusioned about the whole process? 

 

Have previous away days failed to result in strategic action? 

 

We’ve all felt the frustration when a strategic conversation is hijacked by the same old discussion going around in circles. 

 

There is hope: Away days, done well, are extremely powerful.

 

What if you could commission a Strategy Away Day for your independent school where you could take a step back, secure in the knowledge that you’ll be focussing on high-quality, facilitated strategic discussion of the issues that matter? 

 

Where people leave feeling energised, with supercharged strategic thinking skills and a clear action plan.

 

Sound good?

Strategy Away Days with Juliet Corbett: Avoid the strategy jargon, stay focused on the issues that matter and boost your strategic thinking skills.

"Juliet delivered an inspirational session for Walhampton's Senior Leadership Team and all of us were buzzing afterwards. A heartfelt thank you. Here’s to bringing some excellent ideas together, in a meaningful and strategic way, in 2020."

Titus Mills, former Headmaster, Walhampton Preparatory School

"Juliet has facilitated a number of strategy review meetings with our Senior Executive Team. She brings a great depth of knowledge and relevant experience to the task and we have found our sessions to be fast-paced, well-directed and most enjoyable. It certainly has been a successful partnership for us and has lifted the organisational weight off our shoulders so that we could focus exclusively on developing a coherent and comprehensive strategy for Blundell’s. We look forward to working with Juliet again in the future."

Bart Wielenga, Head, Blundell's School
