If we want an extraordinary future we need extraordinary leaders. Giving future leaders access to life-changing personal and professional development has never been more important.
Elke Edwards, Ivy House
At Ivy House we bring together the most promising young professionals from leading organisations. We offer them profound levels of personal and professional development – the type of development normally reserved for senior executives – at a time when it will impact not only their future career, but the whole of their life.
There exists a transformative set of skills and knowledge that make a profound difference to how a life turns out. They are the hallmarks of those who create extraordinary lives and become extraordinary leaders. We have created The Ivy House Programme to bring this life-changing learning to our high potential young people. Delivered in a way that works, it creates lasting transformation so that they can truly thrive and make an impact.
Everyone at my age should take this programme. It really helps you shape your future career.

Chris Foo, Trainee Solicitor, Linklaters
I learned a lot about becoming more conscious of attitudes, thoughts and feelings and I’m confident this will make me a better individual, team member and leader.
Anil Sarda, Economic Consultant, The Economist
One of the most important things you can do is get young people engaged and inspired. It would pay for itself many times over. The most talented young people and experienced coaches create the most varied network for support and advice I could imagine.
Tom Norris, National Account Manager, Kraft Heinz
The Ivy House programme will change your life. A group of people just as curious and enthusiastic about making an impact and changing the future as you.
Josie Andrews, PA Consulting Group
The Ivy House team knows what it takes to lead an extraordinary life. Led by Elke Edwards – founding partner of the multi-award winning executive development company, Blue Sky Performance Improvement – we are dedicated to bringing life-changing knowledge to young people who are determined to reach their full potential.
Each year Ivy House works with a select group of organisations who share our commitment to the development of emerging leaders. These businesses and organisations invest heavily in finding the right young talent, and are eager to see the impact they can make. They want to:
High potential doesn’t mean high performance. Give your brightest and most determined young talent transformational development and unlock their potential to drive the future of your organisation.
Too many organisations are seeing their high potentials and top performers vote with their feet. Reduce attrition rates by letting your emerging leaders know how much you value them and want them to succeed.
Give your high potential young talent the skills and knowledge they need to truly step into their leadership potential. Ensure lasting habits of success are embedded from the start, and set the foundations for a culture and mindset of learning and growth.
Create lasting change not just from the top down, but also from the ground up. Give a voice to your high potentials and tap into their energy, curiosity and creativity.
Bringing transformational leadership development to schools
The sooner young people learn to take positive and proactive ownership for their lives, the easier it is for them to form the behaviours and beliefs that are the basis of a fulfilling, purposeful life. To this end, we are building a powerful network of influential people in business, government and education who want to be a part of bringing the very best of leadership development to schools.
