It’s a fascinating yet challenging time to be a leader. We are in the midst of an old system dying and a new one being born, all amid unceasing transformation – change upon change upon change is the new-norm. Yet as the genius Einstein knew, when we look deep in to nature we understand everything better; we see with new eyes and bring a different quality of consciousness to the solutions than that which created the problems in the first place.
Through over a decade of working on regenerative leadership and nature-based coaching, I have developed a range of practices, coaching-frames and processes that aid the journey of becoming a next-stage future-fit leader.
On Friday 5th May 2023, I will host a special one-off nature-based leadership immersion providing an embodied experience of what it means to become a Regenerative Leader, and drawing upon practices from Leading by Nature

I joined Giles and others on a day-long ‘Leadership Immersion’ at Giles’ magical and awe-inspiring 60 acre ancient woodland in West Sussex. Having read his last book – Regenerative Leadership, I had high expectations. They were surpassed, magnificently.
Giles took us on a journey that saw complete strangers enter into a state of connection, high trust and intimacy – in a matter of hours. We emerged nourished, energised, connected, centred and better equipped to deal with the challenges of life in the early ‘20s. For those seeking answers around their personal and professional development – I can’t recommend Giles and his work highly enough. – Richard Tyre, CEO of Good People
‘Giles’s blends business expertise, deep connection with nature and our living environment and experience in transformation, helping us think differently and progressively about work and organisational intent. He is magical in his ability to generate ‘safe spaces’ for conversations that matter’ – Caroline Gosling, Director, Rubica
‘Powerful and provocative – the most useful leadership course I’ve ever attended!’ – Ian Ayling, Director, Wilco
