Over the last 18 months theGrogroup has been privileged to run the first two strategic leadership programmes for the Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICAEW) exclusively for Managing Partners of accounting firms.

Each of the individuals that have taken part in both strategic leadership programmess have been very open and willing to share their firms challenges and successes. It has been an incredible journey for all concerned and has resulted in a string of opportunities for those people taking part. We are also delighted that these participants have been willing to share some the outcomes that have resulted from the programme, which include:
The ICAEW Managing Partners programme itself is delivered by a range of specialist experts in their field.
Whilst Paul Richmond, the Managing Director of theGrogroup is the course director, he is joined by Jane Bleach, who has served at board level in a top 10 accounting firm as head of risk, Andy Raynor, the chief executive at ShakespeareMartineau, Liz Whitaker an expert in the field of communications in professional services firms, and Simon Dawkins, who has 20 years experience in finance and professional service firms. This team provide a varied but consistently high standard of delivery and the pace of the programme and the opportunity to share with a like-minded peer group, enables all the principles to be put into practice rapidly.
A key aspect of the programme is coaching, which is delivered on a one-to-one basis, and happens either formally or informally over the weeks and months that the programme is delivered.
