A Business Leader Group which promotes ‘learning by doing’ has had a strong start ahead of its Autumn launch in Edinburgh, with over 80 owners and managers signing up to the launch event to explore new ways to develop and grow their businesses.

Henderson Loggie’s action-oriented Edinburgh Business Leader Group kicks off in the Capital in September, offering members a complete leadership toolkit to tackle business challenges including leadership, strategy planning, decision making and marketing.

The accountancy firm’s inaugural Business Leader Group has been helping business leaders and owners in a confidential and supported environment for over a decade. A second group was established in 2017.

Devised in partnership with a prominent international business training provider, Henderson Loggie’s blended learning approach combines uniquely available 24/7 online learning, membership of a highly responsive global community of peers as well as workshops and one to one advisory support.

David Smith, managing partner at Henderson Loggie and an Accredited Business Improvement Facilitator, said: “The Edinburgh launch event will be an important first step for owners and managers responsible for improvement in their business, and the planned sessions will give a flavour of what to expect before they commit to becoming a full member of our newest Business Leader Group. We have been overwhelmed by the response from Edinburgh leaders keen to take the opportunity to step out of their own business environment to view the wider picture and work to gain competitive edge with the support of like-minded people.

“Members must be committed to progress as they will be held to account and pushed to make changes to facilitate growth. Being a leader takes real skill and it is important to keep up to date with best practice and take time to focus on future growth in a non-competing forum. Members tell us they find real value in being able to access learning and our toolkit whenever it suits them, confident that materials are reviewed constantly to be in line with best practice. The results have been proven to be transformational for individuals and their businesses.”

The Business Leader Groups are made up of business owners and people in senior management positions drawn from diverse and non-competing professional and commercial enterprises and third sector organisations.

By being part of the group, participants have the added benefit of access to a global network of people working in all kinds of businesses, as well as to the combined talents and experience of the rest of their cohort and Henderson Loggie’s own finance professionals and business facilitators.

The Edinburgh launch event will take place on 26th September 2018.
