In House Programmes

Partnering with you to build stronger, more articulate and inclusive leaders

Wondering how to equip your leaders for the new normal?

During crisis and change, we look to our leaders for certainty, reassurance and direction. Without this, trust diminishes, loyalty dwindles and productivity suffers. Unprecedented times need unprecedented leaders and many organisations are recognising that they need a fresh approach to help their people thrive.


Leaders with gravitas communicate a clear vision and get their voice heard, whether that’s across borders, remotely or in the boardroom.


Calm in a crisis, they stand up for what they believe, navigate conflict and challenging conversations with ease and proactively influence change.


Straight-talking and authentic, they inspire trust, loyalty and engagement from their teams, meaning greater productivity, lower attrition, and a boost in performance.

Our in-house programmes are designed to equip your leaders with the skills to step up and communicate with clarity, courage and conviction so that they can inspire a shared vision and deliver results.

Formulated around Antoinette’s unique Gravitas methodology, they bring together the best of leadership development and communications skills.

Who do we work with?


Senior leaders making the transition to board, partnership and C-Suite


Team leaders stepping up as ‘the face’ of their organisation


SMEs who have the technical expertise but need the people skills to progress


Ambitious teams who need to influence and inspire stakeholders to say ‘yes’


Leaders who require the resilience, flexibility and autonomy to make change happen


Pitch teams who need to dazzle and inspire prospective clients to win

‘Leading with Gravitas’

Our flagship programme provides emerging and established leaders with all the ‘soft’ skills needed to deliver hard results.

Designed in line with your business outcomes, a typical programme includes goal setting, Gravitas Profiling using our exclusive tool, 4-6 modules based around the Gravitas framework and 121 coaching at regular milestones.

Outcomes of this transformational programme include stronger, more resilient leadership, more powerful communication, greater influence and increased visibility for your organisation and teams.

‘Gravitas for Women’

This course has been designed in response to demand for a programme that accelerates high potential women to senior positions and addresses the real challenges they face as they progress up the career ladder. 

Comprising a two-day, immersive course and executive coaching, the experience is highly personalised and transformational. 

 Organisations which invest in this programme see increased engagement and retention of their female talent, stronger, more resilient leadership, greater gender diversity at all levels, a more inclusive pipeline and an enhanced corporate reputation.

Gravitas Masterclass 

Our signature masterclass is designed to profoundly enhance your leadership impact and influence, both in-person and virtual. 

Highly interactive and practical, it includes scenarios and exercises relevant to your industry, including how to confidently lead presentations and meetings, handle challenging conversations, network with ease and influence with integrity. 

Outcomes include increased self-awareness and confidence, greater autonomy, more powerful communication, enhanced EQ and increased engagement from your leaders and teams.  

Specialist Workshops

Our Gravitas Express workshops focus on specific business including Pitching with Gravitas, Facilitating with Gravitas, Influencing with Gravitas and Conversations with Gravitas.

We are also excited by opportunities to support our clients with bespoke solutions to suit their needs. Recent assignments have included:

We also offer Executive Coaching and Leadership Branding Programmes for our corporate clients. Please get in touch to discuss how we can help.


How to measure success?

We include the following measures as standard: pre-intervervention benchmarking, ongoing assessment against learning objectives and post-intervention tracking and can work with you to design an ROI framework based on your success criteria.

What’s the time commitment?

Programmes are designed to suit your people’s commitments and, depending on the desired outcomes, can be either delivered over a period of weeks/months or immersively.

Can you deliver the programme remotely?

All programmes can be delivered in-person, remotely or a blend of both, using your preferred platforms.

How does this fit with the rest of my leadership development?

All interventions are designed to complement your leadership strategy. Although some of our clients rely solely on the Leading with Gravitas programme to address their leadership development needs, we can equally design our Masterclasses to align with your other programmes.

What people say

“The programme has itself been transformational for my leaders and my business, and has undoubtedly been the catalyst and the stamina behind our success.”
Jack Richardson, Deputy Director, Government Recruitment Services, Cabinet Office

“My businesses embarked on a colossal programme of change and transformation, with an inexperienced leadership team and an ‘all or nothing’ commercial context, where we would either become the supplier of choice or face being wound down altogether. I engaged Antoinette and colleagues to develop a tailored leadership development programme, aimed at building both individual capability and self-belief, and increasing ‘whole team’ effectiveness beyond the sum of its parts.

The programme has itself been transformational for my leaders and my business, and has undoubtedly been the catalyst and the stamina behind our success. At an individual level I’ve seen people with low self-belief truly blossom into confident, capable and compassionate leaders, with a level of finesse that many would envy. And at a team level I’ve been bowled over by the shift towards taking collective ownership, innovating collaboratively and reaching a level of self-sufficiency I’ve rarely seen in leadership teams.”

“We wanted something that was different, exciting, engaging, valuable and delivered with a wow-factor. Antoinette excelled and all delegates spoke of the value of the intervention.”
Alice Farrington: L&D Strategic Capabilities Partner, MSD

“I have had the absolute fortune of working with and seeing Antoinette in a variety of situations – face to face training, 1:1 coaching, talks to a large audience and also online training.

I had the pleasure of first meeting Antoinette when I attended her one-day Gravitas Masterclass. She’s an incredible trainer and speaker, with an impressive balance of both warmth but also presence. She seemingly easily captivates an audience through both her delivery and her content.

Working within L&D, I am all too familiar with how much of what we learn is lost within days of leaving the room. However, so much of what I learnt in those six hours with Antoinette has remained with me and I continue think back to it on a weekly basis as I find myself in both new and familiar situations.

Most recently, I have worked with Antoinette on creating some new training materials for our organisation as we shift to adapting during Covid-19. We wanted to training that was different, exciting, engaging, valuable but delivered with a wow-factor.

Antoinette has been a pleasure to work with, personable, always open to feedback, in frequent contact and has created truly tailored training for our specific needs and our specific audience. In terms of delivery and facilitation, Antoinette excelled – adapting quickly to our IT blockers, familiarised with new technology and provided engaging sessions- bringing the same mix of warmth and presence as she did during the face to face session I attended. All delegates spoke of the value of the training and in particular Antoinette’s facilitation with regards to her ability to bring everyone together, ensure everyone had a voice but that also everyone felt comfortable.

Antoinette’s ability to engage regardless of situation and audience from large rooms to groups of 8 to online delivery and 1:1 coaching is second to none and I’m really looking forward to working together further in the future!”

Isn’t it time you took the lead?
