"I’ve had many leadership roles over the years but I’ve never had such a valuable opportunity to reflect on my own development as a leader. We were very skilfully guided through the week by our executive coach, and to be able to focus on myself for an entire week in such an amazing environment was quite a privilege – thank you!"
"The learning from SLP33 will continue far beyond the seven days at Millbrook. The programme offers balance of self-reflection, 360 degree feedback and practical task oriented learning – at strategic level. A combination, that if willing, offers many insights into one’s own self, leadership performance and untapped capability.
In order to step up, it’s helpful to step back and reflect and observe. This is what Millbrook offers – that rare chance to take time out, but work hard – to reflect, learn and grow as a strategic thinker and strategic leader. The gift of new friends and associates a bonus to top off a remarkable week. Go, learn, enjoy – you won’t regret it."

"What happens when you become responsible for directing 200 highly motivated Professional engineers, Architects, Scientists in a highly performing part of a Global business - you are sent to beautiful NZ to learn how to step up and how to spend more time thinking. What a place to spend more time thinking. Great venue, great people and great Programme. What did I learn? Spend more time thinking, be more aware of what you do and be a leader not a director. I loved the case study and how such strong individuals can work together with a shared common goal to achieve great outcome.
Would I recommend it - yes I would as it has helped me immensely since attending."

“The best things in life are unexpected – because there was no expecting and they say the answer to leadership lies in your soul. The Millbrook experience is about uncovering the essence of what is in your soul and expecting the unexpected as it is through the mystic that shrouds this program that sets it as a life changing experience.
Come with an open mind, come prepared to be an “open book, come willing to learn and be prepared to challenge everything that you know. They say trust the process and they are absolutely right for it will deliver to you the “gems that you need to make the step up. Millbrook is a wonderful venue for it's about self reflection and what better location could there be to really discover yourself through the experiential learning process. In six days, you will absolutely know yourself but more importantly, you will know what you need to change to truly become a strategic leader. This program helped me understand how to release what is in my heart, what behaviours I needed to change and provided me with a road-map for self development. But most importantly, it provided me with the clear understanding that it is only me who controls my destiny and I now know where I really want to go. Take the risk, step up, you won’t regret this once in a lifetime experience.
