• Helping small and mid size business leaders to evolve individually, as a team and as a business.

  • Leading a business successfully through growth requires leaders to evolve, often transforming their philosophies, skills and practices to keep pace with the changing demands of staff, customers and shareholders.


    E2A provides briefings, training, workshops and programmes to support leaders and boards through stages of growth - helping them to evolve individually, as a team and as a business.


    These services address the most common issues experienced by leaders of midsize business turning over between £20 and $100m. However we do help smaller businesses with a programme structured for those turning over <£10m.


    Our solutions are informed by three inputs: experience, expertise and current research. This combination allows us to deliver services that work, provide value, are realistic and use fresh ideas and thinking.


    And as the team behind the unprecedented 2019 UK Mid Size Business Leadership Study we have unique access to the latest MSB leaders insights and an extensive network within the mid size business community.

  • Services

    We have four ways to deliver services: briefings, training, workshops and programmes. All are intervention based, designed to lift internal capabilities rather than create a dependancy on us or any external advisor. All can be taken independently although some have greater impact taken sequentially.
