What we're about

Our monthly meetup is all about helping people identify and reach their goals. We’ll meet in Central London and the venue for each event will be confirmed when you join.

The meetup was founded by two chartered psychologists with a passion for developing others at work. Together, we have over 30 years of experience as practitioners at work, coaching everyone from graduates to c-suite executives, designing and running development programmes and creating bespoke and impactful development solutions.

Each session of our meetup will cover a popular personal development topic, demystifying it and translating it into something you can put into practice immediately. We’ll highlight the fads and nonsense and identify the science of what really works when it comes to developing yourself. We want to grow and develop a community of people who are serious about their development.
