We are the Leadership and Management Development Centre based at Ardencote Warwickshire. Headed up by Jo Cameron MA, leadership specialist and former BBC Broadcaster, we welcome you to visit any time.

Nestled in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside, Ardencote combines a beautiful setting with a relaxing spa, invigorating leisure centre and business facilities which create a first class learning environment. Ardencote is an independent hotel boasting 110 four star bedrooms, 18 conference and banqueting suites and a stunning restaurant. Encompassing beautiful grounds, it is an all-together inspiring environment, the perfect place to bring your teams.  

Our speciality is using the great outdoors and the vastness of Ardencote to underpin our Leadership and Management Development Programmes, Away Days and Team Building Events. The landscape of Ardencote allows the learning to come alive.

We hope we can work with you if you need to re-energise, inspire or mobilise your teams.

""The golf improvement alone was worth it. Additionally, all the business insights which came out of the programme were really useful. I have already achieved a result this morning!”

          -- David Hutt. Business Owner

"I don't like golf and I don't like Leadership courses but I am hooked. Jo and Julian made me feel really comfortable and I learned so much. The course was a real turning point in my life"

          -- Celia. Business Owner 

our approach

we believe that the topic of leadership has been over-complicated for years and we want to make it easier for you to understand and implement - ultimately bringing about positive change in your organisation quickly and effectively - Jo Cameron

what people say



It's all to do with hair that once was once a lot bigger and was a lot redder than it is now. Oh and lions..........because they're quite cool :)

We keep classroom time to a minimum. We pride ourselves on putting the learning into practise, through practical application rather than sitting around talking about it. Most of our clients say that we are down-to-earth and easy to understand which is what makes us different from other similar companies.

We are the only centre in the world to specialise in getting teams of people out on the golf course, where we use golf related activities and psychology to bring the learning to life. BUT you don't have to choose golf as a learning aid as the extensive grounds and facilities lend themselves to all sorts of adventurous and creative activities

If it is the golf your are interested you don't need to worry about people in your team who don't play golf because 85% of our clients don’t play golf or even like golf but, what they do like is being outside in the fresh air and learning new skills.

Science has also proven that you will learn more and remember more when your body is in motion​
