UK and Europe

Since 2000 we have been teaching the strategic benefits of leadership, followership and partnership to organisations throughout the UK and across Europe

UK born, globally focused

Whilst our international portfolio grows apace, our core work continues to be in the UK.

Our programmes have been consistently honoured with industry-recognised awards and are all praised for their innovation and quantifiable results.

Our core philosophies have been informed by many areas of leadership excellence, including our partnership with the world-renowned Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. We empower leaders at all levels to make fast and effective decisions, to deliver better in teams, and to be more effective followers.

We take pride in building and sustaining long-term relationships with our clients. Our FUSION programme is celebrating its 15th year as a part of the learning and development programme of a major international bank.

Multi-national delivery, local focus

Our work in the UK is supported by extensive and dedicated teams .Many of our faculty are multi-lingual and as a result we have delivered many programmes across Europe in the native language.

For example, our Commercial Leadership Programme ensures that managers and leaders are equipped to make decisions that enhance the commercial performance of their entity in a measurable way. We were asked to run these programmes by a client with office in in France and the Netherlands. To make them accessible to all, they were presented in English, German, French and Dutch using IDG consultants fluent in the local business language.

Images from some of our programmes

We pride ourselves on the effectiveness of our programmes regardless of the situation.

“The IDG Business Simulation, designed specifically for our business, delivers an exceptional delegate experience. Highly engaging, very relevant and expertly delivered. The networking and team building opportunities provided by the simulation have also proved invaluable. We are looking forward to working with IDG again.”

Andy Braddel, CB&I

“Superbly facilitated... a fun, enjoyable but challenging and stimulating environment. Significantly contributed to success of our London Operations by enhancing overall business awareness whilst providing focused learning on planning/ decision making/ risk assessment and commercial performance. I would have no hesitation in recommending IDG to other businesses looking to drive project and organisational success.”

Barry Hawley, CB&I

“The inspirational environmen set the tone for a challenging and thought-provoking two days. Each member of the team went away with some firm ideas of how to improve their performance. We asked our facilitator to come back and do some work with the wider team, which also had a great impact.”

Richard Rowney, Liverpool Victoria

"South Africa team were amazing! The passion, energy, inspiration and presence showed up! Truly delighted!”

Donna Adams, Barclays

“The Achieving Your Potential programme at Sandhurst was a great success. The opportunity for students to put theory into practice, experiment with different leadership behaviours and receive feedback from the highly experienced coaches and professional development experts from IDG will prove to be invaluable to produce highly effective business leaders.”


Alexander Cross, Head of Professional Development, Cass Business School

“I have worked with IDG for the past 7 years, through 2 completely different organisations. During this time we have designed practical, experiential and fun learning programmes for my management teams, ranging across all management levels. The leadership experience gained by my delegates has made a significant difference to our business, with our managers making the transition from managing their workloads to leading teams. My delegates have all said that their experience at Sandhurst has been second to none and for some life changing. The IDG team have always been dedicated to our programmes, delivering in a style that is embraced by our delegates. Nothing is too far reached for IDG to achieve. Their enthusiasm, professionalism and passion for learning elevates them far above other training providers I have worked with. I would have no hesitation in recommending the IDG team as a leadership learning provider.”


Mel Milazzo, Training & Development Manager, EMCOR facilities management

“By using a Business Simulation delegates can actually see the immediate impact of their actions on the operation’s financial health. It is an excellent method to get people out of their comfort zone and to learn by acting and experiencing. It pulls far more levers than just financial acumen – it’s about strategic planning, competitor analysis, people management, smart decision making and building a high performing team. It leaves people far more aware of the role that they play in securing long term financial stability and commercial success.”


Bob Pearce, AS Watson

“Huge thumbs up for Lance and Johanne. They seemed to enjoy facilitating as much as we enjoyed participating. I haven’t had so much fun learning, ever. And I mean ever.”


Delegate, Citibank

“IDG… has mastered the fine blend of formal assessment and delivery whilst maintaining informal empathy for the client. The use of formal tools and workshops during our Elite Coach residential programme was augmented by the exceptional people skills of the consultants. During one-to-one sessions which explored personal and potentially emotive areas, their consultants proved adept at handling the coaches and gave me confidence of the gains to be had. I am very impressed with how they go about their trade.”


Sam Whale, UK Sport Elite Coach Programme

“An industry first – great opportunity to jointly learn and make a difference. As we move forward, we will seek to assist and drive improvements in the socio-work-ethical environment in the PDO contractor community. We believe this will support both PDO and the contractor community in addressing key issues arising through gaps or lack of care and engagement/listening – and help to raise performance standards in the contractor community. We want to use PRISM as one of the tools to regularly assess gaps, opportunities and best practice in support of change management and a high performance environment.”


Raoul Restucci, Managing Director, Petroleum Development Oman (PDO)

“IDG’s consistent track record with The Crown Prince’s Training Programme for Youth has seen a further successful roll out – for the sixth year. The students of course continue to gain from both the intellectual and practical aspects of the course – designed to make them self-aware, proactive, and confident.”


Shaikha Marwa Bint Rashed Al-Khalifa, Court of the Crown Prince Training Programme for Youth

“IDG delivered an outstanding two day team development workshop as part of our Analyst Initial Training Programme. We agreed upon a highly interactive workshop that combined theory on high performing teams, team dynamics and the behaviour of effective followers with a range of team development activities. We made the most of the Sandhurst setting; putting the delegates through increasingly complex and arduous activities.”


Will Roberts, Barclays

“IDG are very impressive. They bought into what we were trying to do (build the leadership capabilities of the team) and were passionate about delivering this. There was a real focus on creating a positive learning experience where people wanted to develop and grow as leaders. This has led to sustained improvements and individuals continuing to focus on their leadership journeys. IDG have certainly helped the team discover its leadership potential.”


Michael MacLaren, Head of Business Banking Support, RBS

“IDG continues to provide an excellent programme for people moving into early leadership roles and this has had a lasting impact both on the individuals and the business, with much of the success down to the very experiential nature of the programme combined with powerful content.”


Richard Coles, Senior Project Manager, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare
