Maximise the performance of your leaders, teams and organisation with our tailored people development programmes that incorporate contemporary brain science.


At First Ascent, we work in close partnership with clients to provide uniquely designed solutions that tackle individual, team and organisational challenges. We listen, question and challenge you, then we engage and develop your people to deliver a guaranteed return on investment for your organisation.

Driving performance and achieving measurable results is always our number one priority for clients. We focus on equipping your people to practically apply their learning back in the workplace and make long term, sustainable changes. 

Robust science, contemporary thinking and credible research underpin everything that we do. We use the latest brain science, psychology, social
analytics and learning practices to ensure every programme is engaging and highly effective.

We believe developing a relationship and working in partnership with all of our clients is vital to delivering success. Our relationship with you continues long after the formal learning concludes, as all of our programme alumni have access to ongoing support and mentoring.

Don't just take our word for it. Find out more about the successful programmes and people development solutions we have worked on with our clients below:
