New online learning platform is ‘Netflix for Leadership’

A new online learning platform packed with video content will give people in business the chance to develop their leadership skills.

Leader Connect is the brainchild of former British Army Lieutenant Colonel Neil Jurd OBE and brings together experts in the field of leadership.

Learners can sign up for monthly or yearly membership to get access to videos which guide them through the leadership development process and dig into some topics in more detail.

Northwest-based Neil said: “The new platform and app really is a game changer, and we already have more than 500 people using it from organisations including the NHS, Sanofi Pharmaceuticals, BDP Port of Singapore and Sheffield University.

“For some organisations, it isn’t always possible to invest in face to face training all the time, so the beauty of Leader Connect is that it comes at a lower cost and enables learners to take part in their own time.

“We’re already hearing from people in education, the NHS and in business more broadly, about how it is working and what the real world impact is.”

Among the experts who have featured in the series are British Adventurer and star of Channel 4’s Hunted Jordan Wylie, outdoor cook and Ordnance Survey Champion Harrison Ward – better known as the Fell Foodie – and former Sandhurst instructor Paul Jones who has more than 30 years experience in leadership and team development.

Leader Connect isn’t standing still either, with new experts being signed up to share their knowledge all the time, bringing new and innovative techniques and approaches to learners on a regular basis.

To give people a taste of what the site has to offer, Leader Connect also releases a monthly podcast which has hosted guests including award winning cave diver John Volanthen and world record holder Sally Orange.

As well as offering individual membership, Leader Connect also provides opportunities for organisations to give their whole team access to the platform so they can go on a learning journey together.

Learners are also able to access the service in whatever way suits them best, with an app for Android and Apple devices so they can learn on the go.
