We are proud to announce that Inspirational Development Group will be an Official Event Partner for The SHE Show South 2023!

For over 20 years, IDG has been helping to develop leaders at every level in many of the world’s flagship organizations. Operating in several countries and in many diverse contexts. These include nurturing leadership capabilities in students as young as 14, developing aspiring leaders across various sectors, providing guidance and mentorship to seasoned middle managers in multinational corporations, and inspiring leaders of all ages at senior levels.

The programmes IDG design and deliver for their many clients range from large group residentials for hundreds of candidates, to immersive programmes to develop and shape leadership teams, to working to support education in Middle Eastern countries and elsewhere, to blended/hybrid programmes delivering professional qualifications for operating leaders right up to post-graduate level. The programmes are delivered at such diverse locations as The Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, Client HQs, Business Schools and Hotel Centres and in the UK, India, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, China and the United Arab Emirates. IDG services include an experienced Leadership Coaching and Team Coaching operation to support leader candidates beyond the end of a leadership development programme and to help them develop a coaching style as a leader. IDG rarely delivers ‘a training programme’, instead acting as a trusted adviser and partner to clients, some of whom have worked with IDG on a variety of initiatives for more than a decade. IDG has spent the last three years working with the MiSK Foundation in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to embed leadership capability in the core of the education of young people.

Vicki Washington, Founder of The SHE Show commented on the Partnership:

“We are delighted to have Inspirational Development Group as an Official Event Partner! Having had the pleasure of working with Nigel Girling, Head of Professional Development at IDG for a number of years, we are really looking forward to working with such a fantastic team of innovative thought leaders!”

In recent years, IDG has invested heavily in technology, in attracting diverse talent into its ranks and in expanding the range and type of services offered to the global client base. This includes creating state-of-the-art broadcast and recording studios to enable the delivery of webinars and development across countries and time-zones – and to enable IDG to continuously technologies is the innovative application of Virtual Reality in leader development, the creation of IDG Online as a virtual hub for leadership development and the hybrid Professional Qualification School – offering Chartered Management Institute qualifications from Level 2 in schools right up to Level 7 for senior leaders.

Many of you will know Nigel Girling, a frequent speaker at The SHE Shows for many years and nowadays the Head of Professional Development at IDG. Nigel leads the IDG Professional Qualifications School and is generally to be found recording videos in the studio and creating materials and programmes for IDG Online. His colleague Dr Rona Mackenzie is the global director of IDG’s work to embed leadership in the core of education and is a keynote speaker on Inspirational Leadership at The SHE Shows this year.
