Harrow Summer School for International Students 2019 - Leadership Training

"It is the best activity in this summer camp"

"What I liked about this course was that it was different. It was definitely unexpected. It wasn't just talking about how to be a good leader, it was experiencing it. We had to push each other forwards. Was I put out of my comfort zone? Yes. Did I hate it? Yes. But I now know it is exactly what I have to do. I have to learn how to face these types of situations"

"This course has many interesting points. If I stayed in Japan, I would not have learnt them...I thought a leader was always thinking in the office or in a chair before I came on this course. But I changed my mind after doing this activity. It was a very good experience for me."

"I liked learning about the different styles of leadership and having a different mindset. I tested myself and pushed myself to be the best leader I can and trying to learn how to use a growth mindset. I learned a lot, and took a lot of life lessons from this course and hopefully I will use them in my day to day life."

"At first I didn't like that I was being pushed out of my comfort zone, but now that I have reached the end, I thank Charlie for doing so because I have discovered so much about myself that I did not know before."

"In my opinion, the leadership course was enjoyable and enriching. Indeed you prepared various activities in order to make us learn the important skills... It was even better because we were stuck in situations quite uncommon and strange. Therefore we had to think under pressure and that was very challenging. I really feel that this course helped me to improve myself."

Cottesmore School

Charlie ran a brilliant practical skills training day for the Cottesmore leavers. The leavers enjoyed it immensely. Charlie and his team were engaging and full of energy. The children responded well and had a great time whilst learning new skills which will benefit them in the future. 

Sunningdale School

Charles delivered the most fantastic leadership course for us. It was wonderfully put together and the boys had such fun and learnt so much from someone who has obvious integrity as an ex-soldier and adventurer. I cannot recommend him more highly.
