2020 Programme

Leadership is a challenging business from which an unending stream of complications crop up. The Timoney Leadership Institute Advanced Leadership Programme has been designed to train leaders to grow and develop as they learn how to rise to these challenges.

Our programme will achieve this through insights and discussions with world-class professors from Harvard Business School, the IESE Business School, (ranked number one in the world in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 by the Financial Times for executive education) and several other leading business schools from across the world.

We have hosted our Advanced Leadership Programme annually since 2013, making the 2020 programme our 8th. Throughout this period we have developed the ALP into a great training experience for leaders.

Preliminary expression of interest for the 2020 ALP can be completed here. Don't hesitate to contact us for more information regarding the 2020 programme.

Our training in Leadership is based on a combination of interactive case study discussions and lectures.

This will enhance your capacity to assess, evaluate, manage and solve issues that arise in your role as a leader.

  • “It suits people in businesses that are making decisions. You come with your pre-defined views - you may not leave with those… It’s not just one person at the top of the class changing that for you, it’s 35 people in the room, all moulding and forming those opinions for you.”
