Need for better leaders fuels growth at Harrogate business

Laura Bouttell

A Harrogate leadership business is on course for its best financial year to date, thanks to the growing demand for better business leaders.

Quarterdeck, providers of high level, effective leadership training has secured contracts with the likes of ASDA, B.Braun, Co-op and JCT600 over the past year. The boost in big name brands has seen the company record an incredible 414 per cent growth in the last three years.

With a recent survey from the EEF revealing leadership and management skills need major improvement to tackle the UK’s ongoing productivity challenge, Quarterdeck’s ongoing increase in delegate bookings makes for continued optimism.

Laura Bouttell, MD at Quarterdeck, said: “There’s long been a link between improved leadership and effectiveness in business so it’s great to see businesses are tackling productivity issues by investing in their people.

“We have had a great year in 2017 and 2018 looks to be significantly better. We’re creating fantastic working partnerships with some amazing people from forward looking businesses: Co-op, Beijer Ref, Hermes to name just a few.”

Recently rebranded, Quarterdeck provides high level, effective leadership training with clients including Pendragon, NHS and Investec as well as many SMEs and smaller partnerships.

The Harrogate company has bold plans for 2018 including the launch of a brand-new way of delivering leadership training and a leadership programme that includes health and fitness.

The Masterclass Series has a unique approach – unlike other training programmes, once a company buys a seat anyone can attend, rather than being restricted to a single person.
