Escape, explore, evolve

Our work with senior leaders and teams is creative, experiential and demands serious engagement.

We use amazing Scottish spaces and unconventional facilitators – improvisation performers, murder detectives, trauma survivors, special forces, Everest summiteers, and more – to help our clients dig into big issues. And we partner with specialists such as mountain rescue teams and film producers to weave drama, depth, and storytelling into our microadventure walkshops, retreats, adventure drives, treks, and missions.

Our clients tell us that our rich bank of backgrounds in a wide range of high consequence leadership and performance roles – full of learning from our own successes and failures – makes us highly credible and relevant. We are also seen as pretty interesting and different.

Get in touch if you are a CEO or have a Learning & Development role. We’ll help you identify where we can contribute most powerfully to your wider efforts to accelerate development of the bold mindsets, courageous conversations, and collaborative behaviours needed to nail your operational challenges and strategic ambitions.

“Fresh Air Leadership tailored an inspirational programme that totally delivered. It was about real life, changed human behaviour - self-belief for our senior leaders to believe in themselves and in the power of personal development.”
