London Leadership and Entrepreneurship Socials is the Meetup group for London Leadership and Entrepreneurial Skills Training. Our Meetup training programme is designed to include a socialising element and connect you with people on similar journeys to advance themselves. Workshops are held on weekday evenings, in a quiet room in a pub, followed by drinks and socialising.
PLEASE JOIN THE GROUP EVEN THOUGH WE ARE DORMANT AT THE MOMENT. This is because I'm extremely busy right now, but will be restarting the Meetup training programme later in the year.
Leadership and entrepreneurship skills cannot really be taught, but they can be learned. In this series of workshops, I will help you to learn the skills and qualities that will help you stand out from the crowd. To be a leader, you must have followers. What qualities can you nurture within yourself to make people want to follow you? To be an entrepreneur, you must have vision. What behaviours and attitudes can you develop to become a visionary? Each workshop will give you practical behavioural actions for you to practice so that you can shape yourself to be the person you want to become. Through my experience in running both professional development and university courses, I can tell you that some of you will start to see immediate results. If you are committed to becoming an inspiring and successful leader, whether it's in the workplace or in your own ventures, my training and tools will help you grow and flourish.

Note from Jobeda: Hey guys, that was the marketing bit, but I just really wanted to add that everything I've ever learned and utilised and achieved in leadership is down to surrounding myself with other leaders and entrepreneurs. These courses are the condensed wisdom and qualities of all the entrepreneurs I've been privileged enough to know through my own journey. They are practical and behavioural and will contain actions that you can start implementing straight away. I look forward to meeting you.
