  • Dave's Ask

    I am looking to connect with leaders concerned about senior team effectiveness and the development of their first reports; and to seek introductions to Heads of Learning & Development in energy, healthcare, and financial services companies.

    “What are you hoping to achieve by attending the London Launchpad for Global Success event?”

    "I am going to:

    • Excite and energise the people I meet to view Scotland as a most amazing place to invest in experiences and programmes for business leaders and teams
    • Open my mind and have a big, global mindset inserted!
    • Ask for advice on how best to present ourselves into London and wider international markets
    • Seek introductions, develop relationships, and establish a London presence
    • Grow an out-of-Scotland client base that keeps coming back to Scotland for more!
    • Get to know my fellow ES business leaders and explore how we might collaborate and support one another
    • Report back to our networks in Scotland
    • Say a huge thank you to ES and SBN!"

    Business Profile

    Fed up with the flat spaces, flat thinking, and flat conversations of corporate life, we created the Fresh Air Leadership Company to breathe fresh air into the way senior leaders think and act. Our clients want bespoke, high impact support to accelerate individual and team performance. They want creative conversations around strategy and change. And they want unforgettable experiences to ground their insights and learning. Our work is creative, experiential and demands serious engagement. We use amazing Scottish spaces and unconventional facilitators – improvisation performers, murder detectives, trauma survivors, special forces, Everest summiteers etc. And we partner with specialists such as mountain rescue teams and film producers to weave drama, depth, and storytelling into our services.We help clients escape their flat corporate worlds, explore fresh thinking, and evolve their ability to lead.


    Escape. Explore. Evolve. High impact programmes in amazing places.
