Wavelength's application, thinking and diversity of learning from leaders was transformative. Our peer group on the USA programme was first class and relationships were built across the globe. The application of what we learnt at an executive and board level was invaluable.
For me, the most significant impact has been a personal one. I have never felt more inspired by the experience and many have observed a huge lift in my confidence and leadership presence.
The USA programme worked extremely well and gave my team and I a great opportunity to connect with many entrepreneurs, businesses and ideas. We now approach innovation differently at Tesco from both an organisational and cultural perspective.
Adrian worked with us to deliver a virtual session covering the traits of high performing businesses and lessons from the Wavelength 10 with a group of our senior leaders and talent from 20 countries.
The content is like nothing else - I've never worked with a presenter that has so many brilliant stories and examples from a who's who of the world's best businesses. Our people came away inspired and privileged in equal measure to have got so much insight from so many iconic brands.
The delivery also worked fantastically well and transferred seamlessly from stage to online (using our own internal virtual classroom platform via Google). The slides and content bring the whole thing to life and Adrian's passion and engagement get people hooked. If anything, the virtual setting works even better as it feels more intimate and enables people to engage and debate rather than just watch - which is perfect for this subject.
An awesome session, delivered flawlessly in the virtual setting by an absolute rock star of leadership development.
Adrian really engaged and inspired our leaders. Along with the support he has provided through Connect and Wavelength USA this has moved on our thinking about leadership and purpose massively. He did a tremendous job at bringing together lessons from a really broad range of highly successful leaders. The blend of examples and stories helps people to absorb the ideas and think about application. And the session was also really entertaining!
Adrian managed to engage the entire team spellbound for about 90 minutes with fascinating case studies from Silicon Valley, Asia, Europe and other markets. His stories are awesome, his insights fascinating and his presentation very energetic. He helped us to connect the dots between banking to biotech to robotics to space, and took us on a roller-coaster ride through different industries and countries. I would highly recommend Adrian as a motivational speaker at corporate meetings, customer presentations and strategy offsites – he is guaranteed to send pulses racing and get ideas bubbling!
Adrian will inspire your colleagues, ignite your organisation and instil a sense of urgency and transformation. He has his finger on the pulse of the world’s best organisations and he will get you very close to their beating hearts!
Adrian’s presentation to my top team was truly excellent. He speaks with such authority, gravitas and insight about the key issues in leadership and business - service, innovation, disruption and resilience. The leadership team at Metro Bank are very busy people - so if we give up our time to listen to an outside speaker it better be good. And Adrian was very good indeed.
Adrian - You are indeed the biggest champion and understand what we are doing more than many others in the company. You live it and breath it. To now make the knowledge available to many others, and hopefully create the momentum for biggest change is a very noble cause. Thanks for doing that. Purpose is indeed closely linked to wellness and not many people see this yet. Again you are a pioneer here. You will enjoy the challenges and opportunities and you are well prepared for it. We will see each other still but already thanks for all you have done for this great institution. We will benefit from it for years to come.
Thanks for yesterday Geoff - extremely powerful content and delivery, which made a great impact on the team. Afterwards, I was struck by how many people were openly discussing the strains in their own life and the overall absence of cynicism about the event - both of which are a big departure from the norm and a proof point of the difference you are making in the world.
You managed to do that difficult thing of getting people to think more broadly about their profession, sharing fresh thinking from other companies and weaving this into a stimulating and entertaining narrative – great result!
An invaluable opportunity to broaden your horizons, learn, build new global networks and to understand and challenge established perspectives.
The USA programme was a real eye-opener - a wake-up call to inspire a traditionalist to get on the bus - or be run over. Disruption is now firmly on our agenda.
Connecting with fellow leaders from corporate, charities and government authorities was an enriching experience. Wavelength Connect has awoken my consciousness on how I can make a difference in the world.
I have done the MBA, I have done the business school courses but Connect is in a league of its own. A truly powerful programme which has made me think differently about my leadership and my business.
Connect helped me navigate a time of profound change - for my industry, my company and for myself. It could not have come at a better time, and proved to be a real anchor and inspiration in a time of immense uncertainty.

Think you don’t have time to take a week out of your busy diary for the Wavelength USA experience? I did. Think again, this is truly a remarkable experience that left me with a long list of insights, practical tips and emerging business and technology themes where I need to probe deeper. Even better, I met a range of peers from different industries and countries who really challenged my thinking. Outstanding.
We couldn’t have asked for a better concept. The speakers have been of the highest calibre and quality, the discussions are powerful, rich and thought-provoking and one of the added bonuses has been the variety of other
organisations going through the experience and the chance to share in our own breakouts.
My experience with Wavelength USA was incredibly thought provoking and engaging. I did not appreciate until I returned how the attention to detail on every aspect of our experiential learning journey was carefully orchestrated to allow me to fully immerse myself in the experience and not sweat the details - it was like having a concierge on my journey to the future. Bravo - highly recommend.
The Wavelength USA experience was second to none. I was inspired to challenge the status quo by witnessing first hand organizations and leaders that were fearless about being disruptive, innovative and forward thinking while preserving their core. A brilliant journey.
Every time I work with the SpeakersHub team, I'm blown away by the quality of people on their roster and the access they have to a who's-who of innovative, provocative and leading edge thinkers and leaders. If you want to build knowledge and get insight from people who are at the very top of the latest thinking and leaders in their field then Sarah and the team are the people to talk to.
The ability to hear world-class leaders share their honest and insightful stories and interact with other likeminded leaders on Wavelength webinars is a unique and powerful way to equip yourself with the knowledge to lead effectively through challenging times.
Innovation is what we, as a company, pride ourselves on. Our ability to think differently is what keeps us ahead, so going into the trip that’s what I was looking for. A new perspective. And I got it. The programme’s unique structure gives us genuinely immersive experiences inside a broad spectrum of extraordinary companies. We witness first-hand how the best-of-the-best operate around, for example, product development, customer experience or people and culture. The focus is on interpretation of principles over execution, in order to stimulate fresh thinking that can begin to shift the dial from the very first day we return to HQ. If you’re not operating from the outside in, you become very isolated in your thinking. Looking at companies that have absolutely nothing to do with what you’re doing day to day helps to make that mindset shift.
Wavelength is a leadership programme with a difference – immersive, thought-provoking, inspiring and challenging. If you want a completely different learning experience, away from the traditional classroom – this is for you. Whether in a yurt deep in the countryside or touring around the country to look ‘behind the brand’ to learn from some of the most innovative and exciting brands, there is something to learn for everyone. Personally, it gave me inspiration and time to reflect on my leadership purpose; to consider the impact and outcome of each decision I am taking; to cut through the task list and really think about the value I am bringing to each interaction.
The best organisation I have ever visited. It is already having a profound effect on how we scale our impact and transform young people’s lives.
The Wavelength programme was an incredible in-depth journey into one of the most incredible organisations on this planet. A no-holds barred experience where you could get to the heart of how the miracle of Aravind truly works. Frank and open debate with astonishing honesty from everyone involved. This experience is a life-changing opportunity that makes you really think about what you and your company are doing and why. Simply don’t miss this. This is the one.
The Wavelength trip was a life-altering adventure filled with learning, new friendships and profound business insights.
Aravind is an inspirational example of how to do good business and do good at the same time. This trip is built in that image, feeding your brain and your soul in equal measure. I can’t recommend it highly enough. The impact will
stay with you for years!
The Wavelength USA experience is truly remarkable; opening doors to incredible speakers, great thought leaders and a superb network of connections. It’s an experience that brings insight and thought-provoking exposure to the latest technologies both in the market and under development. The experience and interaction with top level, business-driven executives really encourages delegates to embrace innovation, challenge their own business model in the face of disruptive technologies and fundamentally assess the way they think about business. An extraordinarily well managed programme that hit the mark in many ways.
Inspire makes you lift your head, look out, and consider what the future holds. Learning from international leaders challenges usual thinking patterns and stimulates you to consider what is the art of the possible for your own organisation.
For our participants, Inspire has become like a ‘cultural book club’ – every month our participants dial into the sessions from inspiring speakers, and then come together to discuss, reflect and think about application.
Wavelength strongly believe in the democratisation of access to leadership education and actively encourage participants from the not-for-profit, charity and public sectors to join our programmes. To that end, we are offering a 40% discount to leaders from charities, social enterprises, public sector and educational institutions.
At a time when leaders need it most, Inspire will bring the outside in to your organisation, providing fresh insights and ideas, and ensuring your leaders remain energised, informed and engaged.
