We create bespoke, tailored programmes for each client

Tailored Programmes

We start with an open mind, a clean sheet of paper and lots of experience.  We listen to your objectives, your operational realities, your budget …and your aspirations.  Then we provide a recommendation for a programme that meets those objectives, including the latest ideas, exciting formats and flexible delivery options.

We select a team to deliver your programme who are engaging, experienced and who, above all, hold your success as their priority.  The resulting programme is one that delegates will remember as the most effective development experience of their careers!

Finally we support all our alumni for life, through free lifetime mentoring and enrolment in the First Ascent Foundation.


We like to think of First Ascent as the Saville Row of tailored programmes. Each client is special and individual. We use high quality materials (our people and ideas), to produce a product (your programme) that will have impact for many years!

We apply this tailoring approach to leadership, management, team, talent and graduate programmes and as an accredited ILM Centre, are able to deliver bespoke client programmes from Level 3 up to Masters Level (Level 7).
