Introducing The LEO Programme 2021

NRG Executive Search & Selection have announced the return of the Leadership Enterprise Opportunity (LEO) Programme in 2021.

Supporting individuals’ transition to new opportunities

LEO is aimed at talented and valued employees facing redundancy due to prevailing economic conditions. The objective of the programme is to harness, channel and retain enterprising talent within the North East. To emerge from the pandemic in the strongest possible position to move forward for both employees and employers.

The 3-week programme is sponsored by NCFE, and endorsed by North East Local Enterprise Partnership (NELEP), Entrepreneurs ForumPeople GaugeDynamo North East, North East England Chamber of Commerce (NEECC), Newcastle Gateshead Initiative (NGI) and Confederation of British Industry (CBI). Previous LEO candidates have also added their backing to the programme.

The programme will allow businesses to build a meaningful outplacement package to support affected individuals. Focused on the North East the programme will provide unrivalled access to senior and talented business leaders, enterprises, cross-sector networking. It will also highlight the new and emerging sectors where their talent may be sought.

Why LEO?

Maggie Pavlou, LEO Programme Director said “LEO is a unique programme, designed to achieve specific results and tailored towards a very specific type of person – high performing individuals who find themselves unexpectantly at a pivotal point in their lives.

The programme is designed to allow each individual the time to re-energise their appetite for change, expand their horizons so they can re-imagine their future, re-build their confidence and ultimately re-focus themselves on new opportunities.

All of the previous LEO Programmes were incredibly successful. I am confident that the 2021 programmes will produce similar results”

Previous candidate George Dodds, Director, Public Health Scotland added “The LEO programme enabled me to depersonalise redundancy and provided the environment to cope with the emotional pressures. Whilst my earlier career had come to end, the LEO programme gave me the confidence to start my new successful career. I highly recommend the programme to others in similar circumstances”
