About Cambridge Executive Development

Cambridge Exec is a boutique learning consultancy made up of a select team of specialists in workplace wellbeing, communications and people-oriented leadership and management.

We deliver training and coaching, and conduct research and analysis that supports your people-centred workplace culture.

For over fifteen years we’ve been helping organisations ranging from small startups to international brands to build their people’s capacities, enhance wellbeing and boost engagement at work.


Our model

Our training programmes and insights are built around a simple model that underpins a people-oriented approach to leadership and workplace culture.

Drawing on research and experience from the most successful organisations, we have identified a virtuous circle of three key elements that are vital to a thriving, profitable people-oriented culture.

These elements reinforce each other, and provide a guide to the areas where your investment in your people can have the biggest impact.
All of our training services fit within this framework, and each programme can be adapted to meet the specific needs of your team, organisation or sector.
