Talent and leadership development

We can help you identify and develop the leadership capabilities you need to succeed – today and tomorrow.

We’ll work with you to define your leadership capabilities. We’ll identify gaps and set up development programs that bring sustainable results.

Our customizable programs may involve one-to-one coaching or facilitated workshops, virtual learning and even online gamified scenarios – or a blend of these techniques.

We aim to ensure people feel involved in their own development, so that what they learn ‘sticks’ with them. That's why we’re recognized as one of the Top Leadership Development firms in the world by ALM Research & Advisory.

With over 20 years of experience in the leadership development, management consulting and training sectors, Andrew Graham has established an international track record of leading and managing global professional services firms. 

Andrew has proven business transformation capability driven through a natural people orientation, coupled with strong business acumen. Andrew served as President and CEO of Kepner-Tregoe Inc. (KT), a Princeton based consulting and training firm, which specializes in business transformation programs through the use of rational process thinking ideas that enable companies to resolve complex strategic and operational issues through the applied use of systematic process.

Joining the business in Australia, he initially focused on his client’s operational improvement projects; to support international operations, Andrew took on a turn-around leadership challenge with KT’s Tokyo operation.  Over two years, he successfully guided the business towards profitability, while gaining experience with the major consumer products companies in the region. Following Japan, Andrew relocated to Europe to take a leadership role guiding the firm’s complex European operation whilst evolving it toward an integrated, pan-European, business model. 

In conjunction with driving the business towards improved profitability and increased team engagement, Andrew was active amongst the company’s strategic clients delivering strategy formulation and operation improvement projects.  In late 2005, Andrew was appointed COO and relocated to North America to become CEO in 2006.  Under Andrew’s stewardship, the executive team designed and implemented a forward-thinking strategy, which enabled the business to weather the 2008 global financial crisis and position it for future market growth. During this period, Andrew developed a keen interest in the field of effective leadership behavior.

In 2010, he left the business to pursue this passion, relocating to Italy to serve as an adjunct professor at CIMBA University, near Venice, while studying the evolving field of neuroscience as applied to leadership behavior. Bridging to a new challenge, Andrew was appointed as President and CEO of Forum Corporation, a Boston based training company specializing in Leadership Development, Sales Effectiveness and Customer Experience management, where he led a multi- disciplinary, global team of professionals, committed to adding value to their clients through proven strategies, ideas, and innovative delivery solutions.  

Andrew holds a B.Eng. in Mechanical & Production Engineering from Sir John Moors University, in Liverpool, UK. He resides in Princeton, NJ and is an active member of the New York chapter of the Young Presidents Organization.  In recent years he has served on the Board of Blyth Inc., a NYSE public listed company in the home expressions sector.

Andrew is a passionate aviator, in his spare time; you will find him at the controls of helicopters, fixed wing aircraft and paragliders.  When not in the air, Andrew scuba dives, rides two-wheel transport, is an enthusiastic photographer and an avid, early adopter, of new technology.
