Ros travels the world developing the leadership potential of employees through the Just Leadership™ programme which she formulated.   A creative academic, she is a chartered clinical psychologist, coach, trainer and regular speaker on the conference circuit. She has presented in the USA, Europe, and China and completed a lecture tour in Japan.

Newspapers have described her variously as ‘the guru of personal development’ and ‘the best motivational speaker heard this year’.   Ros has developed a unique style of coaching which achieves major insights and shifts in thinking as well as creating a vision for personal and business success. Ros draws on her background as a psychologist to facilitate creative strategies and move people on to become more than they would ever have believed possible.

Previous delegates have received support via Skills Development Scotland’s Flexible Training Opportunities programme.   The 2015/16 programme is currently under development but previously organisations with fewer than 100 employees were eligible for the 50% grant.  For further information go to their website

IoD Scotland courses are open to all so please feel free to circulate to interested colleagues.   Places are strictly limited so you are advised to book as soon as possible.   Further information on our Professional Director Series of courses can be found at the IoD Scotland website.
