Italy, France and Austria – Special Charity Walks

Let’s Counter The Fall In Trust Levels

This summer EP is delighted to be working on several exciting charity walks which are all about being engrossed in another country and culture but also act as a way of learning. The aim is for leaders and emerging leaders to get involved in activities outside of both work and home and experience activities which challenge, inspire, builds relationships and support special causes.

As we stand many businesses and boards are actively debating the fall in employee productivity, the increasing levels of mental health issues, the fall in trust levels towards leaders and the need for new leaders to be developed and nurtured through.

Now is the time to counterbalance this.

There are also options for sponsoring emerging leaders along these journeys – please just let us know if you would like to know more.
