Last year we hosted our first exciting Women in Leadership Development (WiLD) Programme, in collaboration with Leeann Naidoo, owner of Concordia Coaching & Leadership Solutions, aimed at middle to senior management levels across various insurance companies and brokers such as Hollard, Willis, AON, Marsh, Emerald and others.

Based on the success of the 2016 programme we are now going to offer a second programme launching in July 2017. The course objectives are to develop key leadership skills and characteristics in women to become world class leaders in the insurance sector.
We believe that continuing to work with Leeann at Concordia, based on her international financial services and insurance sector knowledge and experience will yield high returns. What’s different about her programmes is that each module is steeped in neuroscience principles, incorporating behavioural psychology to help you achieve not only the skills, but the shift in mind-
Leeann has extensive knowledge and international experience in applying neuroscience in business (how we learn, how we make decisions, how we build relationships). A management consultant, specialising in organisational change and leadership development, she has worked for major consultancies and audit firms in the UK and the US, studied through international universities like Buckinghamshire, Henley, Oxford and Cambridge and published her first book in the UK, called The Mind Age™, runs an international coaching magazine and has been featured on local television and radio. Leeann is a specialist in leadership development and learning, where she lectures and designs programmes at major South African and international consultancies and universities. She is highly engaging and her programmes receive positive accolades.
