Increasingly, organisations are seeking to develop business programmes that are tailored to meet their specific needs. We will work with you to understand your needs and strategic business objectives. Using this insight we will design a programme that addresses your needs at an individual and organisational level and delivers tangible business benefit in line with your corporate strategy.
The William J Clinton Institute worked closely with us to develop a global leadership skills program over last four years which has covered almost 700 managers across 20 cohorts with delivery in Belfast, Chicago, and India.
Due to the overwhelming success of the program, we are in discussion with our business operations leaders in Canada to deliver the education program in Toronto later this year and discussions are also ongoing in regard to expanding the program beyond the ATSV organization into the Allstate Enterprise.
Thanks to the outstanding contributions of Anne Clydesdale, Anne Phillipson and Olivia May, from the William J Clinton Leadership Institute at Queen’s University, this program has won numerous global excellence awards including a silver award at the 2015 International Business Awards, the Outstanding HR Initiative award at the Global Business Excellence Awards 2015 and the 2016 Silver Award at the UK Employee Experience Awards (Learning & Development).
We are looking forward to a new year of successful partnership with the outstanding global learning experts from the William J Clinton Leadership Institute and I could not more highly recommend this team to any other organization considering a global leadership education program.

We engaged The William J Clinton Leadership Institute to design a bespoke ‘Strategic Sales Leadership Programme’ which would have a mixture of core modules and optional elements.
The tools and models provided during the program facilitated by the team at the Institute opened discussion, debate and provided the sales leaders with insight, vision, broader horizons and an understanding that shifted their thinking.
In practical terms, we saw a significant shift in the effectiveness of our sales leaders. They are also continuing to work more collaboratively together and across the business/territories. The work of culture change is underway and our leaders appear to be more confident in the role they are playing in making this happen. Overall, we are delighted with the outcomes – as our MD Gary Wilmott said to Anne "You absolutely nailed it! ….We are already seeing the difference in behaviours"
Finally, I would add that the team at the William J Clinton Institute was simply great to work with. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt that we got a Programme that felt like it was the Andor way
