“Grant delivered an interesting and from the heart talk to our Y11 students as part of our Post-16 transition programme in the Spring of 2021. His presentation was very insightful and provided our students with an overview of the work The Lion Leadership does and the skills they need to develop to succeed in life. Thank you, Grant”

"Grant is the very best kind of facilitator: engaged and attentive to those around him while also being expertly focused on his ability to lead others through a planned discussion. He builds upon taught principles and objective truths by encouraging and drawing out a much more personal response. He balances informality with professional rigour in a way that yields life-changing results."

‘I am proud to call Grant a true friend. This friendship has built over several years after meeting him through business networking. I have witnessed first-hand his passion, drive and genuine care for people. When Grant told me that he was launching The Lion Leadership, it made perfect sense as all his qualities and skills would be utilised to their maximum potential. I wholly recommend The Lion Leadership to anyone interested in achieving their maximum potential with the support of a consummate professional by their side.’

"We recently had an amazing day of training and development with Grant from The Lion Leadership.  He helped us to deepen the relationships within our team which was surprising as we are a very close group already.  He also helped us to expand our thoughts & knowledge on how and why we lead.  The content was excellent and thought-provoking. It has improved our communication between one another and the different departments which have been great!  I look forward to working with him in the future and learning more ways to improve on what we do."

"Grant has thought long and hard about the importance of character in leadership. It is an issue close to his heart and his treatment of the topic is effective and authentic.  I enjoyed his clear and direct presentation on various aspects of character, the questions he poses will give much food for thought in organisations keen to strengthen this vital element in organisational success."

"Grant led the session on character in leadership with characteristic modesty and openness. The workshop was a reflective and enjoyable session on which helped the business leaders present to raise questions about their own personality and leadership style, in a way that was encouraging and illuminating. It will be interesting to see how this programme develops."
