Matrix Investment in LeadAbility at Future Leaders 2017

Matrix Continues Investment in LeadAbility Programme and Employees at Future Leaders 2017

As part of the Matrix LeadAbilty Scholarship programme, Matrix Fitness sponsored four of the brightest disabled senior leaders with fully funded places on the Future Leaders programme. The weeklong course, which started on 17th July, took place at the IESE in Barcelona, currently ranked as the number one business school worldwide.

As well as proactively addressing the under-representation of disabled people in senior leadership positions through the sponsorship of this programme, Matrix, as part of its continual investment in staff, also took four of its own employees.

The annual programme, which addresses a variety of critical business issues, engages attendees in learning and development opportunities that will provide them with new perspectives, skills and connections to progress them within their career.

Jo Rich, Director of Key Accounts for Matrix Fitness said:

“I found Future Leaders invaluable due to the knowledge and experience gained over the course of a week. It was a well thought out schedule, with challenging content, which stimulated strategic thinking that was well delivered. In addition, a fantastic networking opportunity with strong relationships built over the week.”

James Blower, International Hospitality Manager for Matrix Fitness said:

“I felt privileged to have the opportunity to attend the Future Leaders programme 2017 at the IESE. Especially as the university is ranked number one within executive education, and it’s teaching professors are world-class. The business school is a fantastic resource to develop ones’ personal leadership and business acumen.”

David Morphew from the Aspire InstructAbility Leisure Centre, who attended as part of the LeadAbility programme said:

“I was so thrilled to earn a place on the ukactive Future Leaders programme via LeadAbility, which was kindly sponsored by Matrix.

This is by far one of the best things I have done and a total life changing experience. I have met some great people and made fantastic contacts, also learning so much more about business and the fitness industry.

The tutors and IESE School are out of this world. I cannot thank Matrix, ukactive and LeadAbility enough… it was a fantastic experience!”
