The Advanced Leadership Programme currently takes place in the attractive setting of the K Club in County Kildare, 45 minutes by car from Dublin city centre.
In February, the module will take place in IESE Business School in Barcelona. IESE is a world-class leading business school that delivers a range of Executive Education programmes and is ranked no 1 for Executive Education globally by the Financial Times. They will welcome us to their impressive campus in Barcelona where we will have the opportunity to experience sessions over two days.
In May, we relocate for a three-day module on the campus of San Telmo International Institute in the beautiful city of Seville, Spain.
The K Club is one of Ireland’s most famous venues and is frequently voted among the best resorts in Europe. The hotel, with nine meeting and conference rooms, provides an ideal setting to allow you to get away from the day-to-day issues and get maximum value from the programme.
San Telmo International Institute’s campus in Seville is a historical building granted to it by the local government. The May module there has proven to be an important stage in the development of strong ties between participants on the programme. It also provides an opportunity to visit innovative businesses and meet with leaders who are alumni of San Telmo.
The Sports & Leadership seminars which Timoney Leadership Institute facilitates have taken place on the campuses of IESE Business School in Barcelona and in Munich. IESE is one of the world’s leading business schools and has a stunning campus in Barcelona where a range of executive education programmes are delivered. It also has smaller campuses in Madrid, Sao Paulo, Munich and New York.
“We really are spoilt both in terms of the surroundings, the hospitality, how well we’re looked after, the organisation and the content. And the destination… Seville is really the icing on the cake, and the bonding you experience on that particular trip, to me was outstanding.”
I've had a university education, I've gone to the Law Society, I've gone to courses everywhere, but nothing compares to what I've learned here over the last 5 months. Before I've actually finished this course I've implemented changes, so you can't back track from that.
"Leading other people depends on personal qualities" Dr Alberto Ribera, IESE Business School and lecturer on the Timoney Advanced Leadership Programme shares some insights into the importance of self knowledge, self awareness and character development for leaders
“We had Breege O’Donoghue, Director of Primark, we’ve had the Chairman of AIG, British Airways and Aer Lingus, we’ve had the CEO of Telefonica, the head of Connacht Gold. How else would you ever get face-to-face time with people of this calibre and at that level of business except on a course like this?”
I think anyone can gain from an experience like this particularly is they're getting into more general management
