Following a strategic review, succession planning was raised by the Executive Committee as a priority: the leaders of tomorrow were not being developed.  



Leadership and coaching programmes were developed for new managers and those identified as emerging senior leaders across Europe spanning a 24 month period. Beyond the core leadership principles, modules included NLP, commercial skills, and law relevant to the pharmaceutical industry.

Coaching was scheduled in between modules to facilitate practice and review of learning and practical on-the-job support.



  • Better communication and collaboration across group companies, divisions and departments
  • Significant cost savings and strategic advantage have been generated by project work undertaken on the programmes
  • Efficiencies have been realised through closer cross-functional working
  • Individuals have benefitted from coaching sessions, increasing confidence and their ability to influence both customers and colleagues.
