Our Certified Trainer Programme is a 10-day intensive training programme which qualifies individuals to deliver the Personal Leadership Programme. Having in-house trainers to deliver leadership programmes within your organisation is a huge benefit on many levels:

  • Your delegates will benefit from an in-house trainer’s inside out knowledge of the business
  • You will have an in-house resource for leadership development
  • Your trainers will be Living Leaders – a resource for your leadership team to call on
  • Your trainers will be able to support your delegates post programme
  • Embedding and sustaining the learning enables an integrated strategy from the outset
We know that the formula for effective leadership is simple: Vision, multiplied by passion, minus excuse-making and scapegoating, multiplied by discipline and trust, plus a dose of a charismatic personality, competency and ability. This winning formula results in a determined, productive and profitable organisation. How quickly a person can develop these necessary leadership skills and traits ultimately depends on the leadership development programme they choose. How quickly you see results at a organisational level is hugely influenced by the thought given to the overall strategy – planning the post-programme support is often forgotten in the excitement of planning a leadership development roll out.

How Our Integrated Packages Work

The skills learned on the Personal Leadership Programme can be put into practice long after you’ve finished the course. We don’t believe in using PowerPoint, laptops, graph and excel charts or overwhelming people with copious materials that they’ll never get round to reading. Instead, we deliver real, hands-on learning paired with purposeful thinking and interactivity. We challenge and push your people to identify their unique style and show them how to multiply that by 10 to not just be an effective leader, but to be authentic. We know that being a productive leader who motivates their team becomes so much easier when you’re being true to yourself, instead of adopting a persona or wearing a mask.

The models and techniques we teach and demonstrate are all tried and tested and proven to enhance confidence and transform performance. We also don’t operate on a ‘one size fits all’ approach — we take the time to tailor the lessons to the individual, so that your employee gets the full benefit.

Imagine that the following were achievable:

A productive team that thrives on honesty, openness, and trust, that communicates effectively to deliver peak levels of performance at all times
A team of individuals motivated by their passion for what they do. They’re engaged, hungry to develop and always deliver
An inspired and inspirational team full of energy, that not only performs well, but constantly drives the business forward
An innovative team with the confidence and autonomy to devise and implement new strategies. Give yourself the competitive edge and say goodbye to micromanaging.

I attended the masterclass over two full weeks in Autumn 2018 and have to say that it was one of the most enlightening work experiences I have ever had. It gave me the ability and confidence to deliver the training to a group despite having no previous experience. The methodology of deliver, listen, learn, deliver, although very hard work was immensely rewarding. It also provided the opportunity to question, challenge, feedback and modify your approach. One of the great benefits was allowing the space to develop your own style and pace. I would firmly recommend the masterclass. Mark Blundell


I didn’t think I could beat the feeling when you leave day 3 of Living Leader really refreshed and ready to change your thinking and change your life. The Masterclass was so illuminating I not only left with a deeper understanding and appreciation for all that is covered in the course, but with a real sense of pride and passion for how much I wanted to help other people feel differently too, in the same way my PLP facilitator had done for me.

The course helps you retrace your steps back through the PLP, spending more time as a group thinking in more detail about the theories, learnings and reflections you have to help you bring the course to life for others. As a group you are given the opportunity to build a strong network of support which is not only invaluable over the course of the 10 days, but a great way to continue to share your learning and experiences going forward.

The Certified Trainer Programme gave me the opportunity to not only invest in myself but showed me how much more I can give, as a leader to develop others. Of all of the training I have undertaken as an HR Professional, this has been one of the most valuable experiences professionally and personally. Jill Moore

What Others Are Saying about the Course

Here’s what our clients have to say about the Certified Trainer Programme:

Marsh and Parsons

Marsh and Parsons described our training as “brilliant, inspirational and full of energy and passion.”

Nigel Parkinson
Managing Director, Caterpillar Inc.

The deployment of the Personal Development programme by our own trainers was really good value and it allowed me and others to make the course even more relevant to Caterpillar and our business challenges.

Chris Weston
CEO of Aggreko

TLL has given us a team of flag-bearers for our new style of leadership and accountability. The PLP has also saved us lot of money as we’ve rolled out.

Steve Back
Group CFO MRH (GB) Ltd.

This is a leadership course like no other and produces startling results and a quantifiable return on investment that not only can be measured but is visible. What do I mean by that? – for me it delivers greater engagement, with leaders setting the tone for behaviour and better bosses inspiring employees through engagement and increased interaction including the tech generation. It is an amazing product and I have used it four times in different organisations and its impact and results always astounds me.

Ben Slater
CEO Bow and Arrow

I first saw Penny Ferguson in action at a leadership breakfast in Australia. I learned more in those 30 minutes than I had from any leadership course, book or article. This lady is THE guru, sage and authority on the subject of how to create, delegate and sustain a high performing culture. Straight after the breakfast, I signed my top team to her Programme. It was so effective that we subsequently decided that every single person in the company (50+) should attend the seminar. They have. The results have been extraordinary.

Paul Stobart
CEO, Zen internet

In my experience, Penny Ferguson is far and away the best and most inspirational speaker I have ever heard on the all-important subject of leadership. I have been fortunate enough to attend her leadership programme, The Living Leader, multiple times and I have seen first hand the transformative effect the programme can have on leaders. For Penny, and I agree with her, leadership is the single biggest driver of business success; get it right and businesses flourish, get it wrong and businesses struggle. Her approach is refreshing, innovative and inspiring. Anyone who is interested in leadership and believes in its transformative power should listen to what Penny and her team at Living Leader have to say …

Lesley Cotton
Divisional Human Resources Director, P & O Ferries

It is the most effective leadership behavioural change programme that I have been involved in across my career, for a number of reasons: There are clear learnings as to how personal behavioural change links to business results;-The programme is aligned to driving business performance;The change in team dynamics is evident post the programme.

Gordon Pitman
Chief HR Officer, GKN Aerospace

Having experience the Living Leader Program myself many years ago and used many of the things I learned to shape my personal leadership perspective it felt like the right time to introduce Penny Ferguson to GKN Aerospace. We introduced the Living Leader Program as part of our transformation journey to equip and enable leaders across the business to think differently about the culture they had created and the impact it was having on their teams, their business and our customers. Over 200 leaders have now experienced the program and although early days, the leadership skills they have learnt are helping them drive true behaviour change and improve their business results.
