Our Network

The finest commercial leaders have discovered that success comes faster together than working alone.

The Network supports high potential commercial leaders seeking to step into future C-suite roles. Bringing the outside-in, the Network focuses on delivering tangible business results whilst creating and nurturing high performance talent.

The network

The role of the leader can sometimes be rather a lonely place. The Uspire Network surrounds you with a support infrastructure perfectly designed to provide essential guidance, knowledge and peer-based interventions so that you never feel isolated when making critical and challenging decisions.

In response to the demand for a new way of learning, we have adapted the Uspire Network membership. This leadership programme brings the powerful benefits of The Network, but over a blended virtual and face-to-face platform. Membership is open now and members are able to join at a time to suit their needs.

What Our Members Say

Shaun Smith

Sales Director
Having been part of the Uspire Network for a year I couldn't be more positive about the programme. The coaching I have received is tailored to my specific needs and positively challenging. My coach has a breadth of industry experience which he draws upon to stretch my thinking and to positively challenge me. Without doubt this has helped me lead my team more effectively. I fully endorse the Uspire Network.

Debra Martin

Partner Corporate Finance
The Uspire Network has not only connected me with a wealth of experience from commercial leaders experiencing the same challenges as I face in my role but it has also given me access to an archive of excellent educational materials and tools that I know I would not have found myself. It has given me a better perspective on my work life balance and inspired me to become the very best commercial leader I am capable of being. Definitely worth it.
