A Progressive Community of Leaders

Peer-to-peer learning, world-class speakers, and energising events.

"The event was thought-provoking and highly refreshing!"

Our mission is to create a progressive community of leaders that help each other in business and in life.

We run events that combine peer-to-peer learning with world-class leadership facilitators, speakers and coaches.

Listen, learn, participate, grow your network and enjoy!

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 organisations which believe in adopting a mindset 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 is headed by Jamil Qureshi.   Aside from being Europe’s first ever Sports Psychologist for the victorious 2006 Ryder Cup team, Jamil speaks around the globe on a mindset approach to success and coaches several of the world’s leading sports people, leading six people to number one in the world!
