Leadership Development, 360 Profiles and Influencing Skills Programmes

Companies House

The main functions of Companies House in the UK are to (1) incorporate and dissolve limited companies; (2) examine and store company information delivered under the Companies Act and related legislation; and (3) make this information available to the public.

The UK has enjoyed a system of company registration since 1844. Today, company registration matters are dealt with in law, by the Companies Act 2006.

There are more than 2 million limited companies registered in Great Britain, and more than 300,000 new companies are incorporated each year.



First Ascent has provided influencing and communication skills training to a number of teams at Companies House. We also provided the senior 50 managers with 360 profiles and a coaching debrief. Most recently we have provided a 3 module leadership development programme for the senior management team.
