What We Think

Question of the Week… responses revealed

Talent development is a hot topic for many of our clients.  Last week we put out the Twitter poll: “How do you recognise and support talent coming through your business?” The top (equally scoring) responses were: In our amazing culture!

How time flies…

Over the past five years, I’ve been privileged to work with some of the most senior, inspirational and influential leaders in the business world. I’ve been lucky enough to have travelled the world and seen places I never imagined I’d venture to. I’ve made friendships with those who started out as ‘clients’ and I’ve seen

Developing today for an unknown tomorrow

This weekend, England Rugby kick off their first game of a three-Test summer tour against South Africa, which is being labelled as a test of Eddie Jones’s rapidly developing side ahead of the 2019 Rugby World Cup. For some of the younger players in the squad, it’s the World Cup four years on from that

A world without meetings? no thanks

How much time did you spend this week in ‘a meeting’?  More importantly, how much time did you spend in those meetings wishing you were somewhere else ‘getting on with my job’.   I often hear ‘we waste a lot of time attending meetings’  from individuals in all levels of organisations, in all sectors.  (In fact research

Lumina Sparking!

The fabulous Lumina Spark app has been put to great use again!  The app enables delegates to scan each other’s Lumina Spark ‘splashes’ and compare them on their phone/tablet screens.

​It’s Newcastle Falcons’ time to soar

There are a couple of what could be described as ‘big events’ happening this weekend that need no introduction, but here at L.E Towers, our thoughts will firmly be with Newcastle Falcons, who play their very first semi-final in Premiership Rugby history tomorrow after a fantastic fourth-place finish. We were hugely privileged to support Falcons’
