Return on Investment (RoI)

We believe in measuring the return on client investment and being judged by it. We encourage our clients to set objectives against which they will judge our impact. We recommend the Kirkpatrick four-level measurement framework as a method for assessing return on investment.

Qualifications for Delegates

First Ascent is accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management to provide programmes to Masters Level. Being a professional leader, is as important as any functional professional qualification. We are experienced leaders ... not academics or career trainers... so we keep it very, very practical. We are also a member of the Association for Coaching and hold ISO 9001 accreditation.



Community Support

First Ascent are proud sponsors of British Triathlon and have been supporting the Federation to achieve medals at the London 2012 Olympics.

We also support the children’s charity Kidscape, doing crazy things to raise money!
