The Benefits of the Drake Academy
Whether dealing with individuals or a whole team, we are focused on helping your business achieve superior results.
It is a bold claim, but by tapping into the operational experience of our staff, using a carefully planned endorsed syllabus and a British Forces Ethos from which we are inspired, it is one we know we can meet. The Rewarding Leaders Programme, a unique one-week sailing programme, based in the British Virgin Islands, that combines Reward with Development to give businesses an opportunity to invest in their key staff.
We asked business what they are looking for from their training and reward programmes. We discovered how important it was to define just what capabilities staff will have on their return. This has informed our design whilst leaving room to work with individual companies to meet their specific needs.

“Leadership Training engages by offering a wider perspective of role and ability to influence." - Simon Mansfield Training Principal
We are acutely aware that ROI for this type of programme is difficult to substantiate. Whilst we are confident of the dramatic impact this type of training can have on individuals and their organisations, we know that outcomes are often subtle and nuanced.
We know the British, and other, armed forces have been reaping these benefits for many decades, we aim to help persuade you of substantive benefits for your organisation.
