The Course Will Focus on Four Domains for Optimal Performance

“During my career to date, I’ve attended a number of ‘development’ programmes. Without doubt, the Inner Winner Personal Leadership Programme in Ballynahinch stands out for me. The makeup and diversity of the group, the programme content, the quality of speakers, the balance between activity-based and reflection-based aspects of the agenda, the magical setting, etc, all combined to make for a truly insightful, fulfilling and unforgettable experience.”

Gerard Kilcommins

Medtronic, VP, Worldwide Vascular Operations

“This programme was life-changing, and was something I really needed. Alan stripped everything back to practical and simple terms and made everything so clear and easy to understand. The techniques being taught are thousands of years old, but theory is nothing without practice, and the motto of the course is practice, practice, practice. In this way we get to form new habits, and by practicing the techniques we learned during the course, I am now able to integrate them better into my daily life. As Alan said, an ounce of practice is worth a ton of teaching!”
