Our Philosophy – Leadership First


We believe that leaders of an organisation must continue to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable change.  This is why we established and continue to evolve Leadership First.

Leadership First is a community that promotes a “mind-set approach” to long term change.  It was founded on the principle that the only way to create sustainable, long-term change is by changing people’s thoughts and feelings and not by obedience.

Launched with a series of pilot events in 2016, Leadership First runs a series of engagement forums for people in leadership roles – specifically to help them to understand and drive sustainable long-term change.

Already a must attend event for many organisation which believe in adopting a mind-set approach, Leadership First helps leaders come together to share experiences and to help them solve problems.  At the same time every event provides an opportunity to meet others and develop valuable new members as part of each person’s business network.

Leadership First features Jamil Qureshi.  Ranked among the most influential people in British sport, Jamil brings a wealth of experience, insightful content and humour to our Leadership First events.

Jamil Qureshi is one of today’s foremost practitioners of performance-enhancing psychology and is an expert in high performing teams.  Jamil has enjoyed working with a rich diversity of the most talented business and sports people and teams in the world, helping six people on their journey to become world number one. Ranked among the most influential men in British sport, Jamil brings a wealth of experience, insightful content and humour to Leadership First.

In business and industry, Jamil has worked with a range of people from CEO and board level to middle management in a variety of sectors.
