Nick Twigg

Nick spent more than 20 years in Asia building high performance, multi-cultural teams in the corporate sector. Now he's lucky enough to keep learning from young people as he helps them get better at the stuff they care about. Nick loves rugby and mountains, and if pushed he could land a plane in a jungle.

The programme will focus on four main themes:-

LEADING - Pupils explore the big questions of leadership; What is leadership? What are the different styles and skills of leadership? How does leadership relate to me?

CARING - Great leaders need to get the best out of themselves and others. Pupils will work on developing self-awareness, confidence, empathy, resilience and adaptability.

CONNECTING - Learning how to communicate powerfully and negotiate with stakeholders, pupils will understand how building and sustaining relationships with others helps us to navigate life’s challenges.

EXPLORING - Pupils explore why creativity is important to performance and use recognised tools to explore problems in ways that develop new and interesting solutions.
