The ION leadership Programme is designed to develop and enhance the leadership skills of owners, managers and key decision-makers of businesses located across the Convergence region of West Wales and the Valleys. ION leadership offers 3 intense, engaging and effective new programmes tailored for people with different levels of leadership experience.

Delivered by business experts, the programmes are based on practical, experiential learning within a trusted group of peers and they focus on finding real solutions for the real issues that leaders, at all levels, face every day.
