We were delighted this month to be shortlisted as a finalist for the Breakthrough Equine Company of the Year in the 2016 E-Dressage Equine Awards, which will be held at the luxury Cheshire estate of Carden Park on Saturday 22nd October. It follows our award success as winners of the Woman Who Awards in the Startup category in April this year.
We were recognised for our work in bringing together business leaders and horses to create a unique and innovative way of developing leadership skills in business.
Emma said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for this award as it demonstrates the commitment we have made to pioneering a unique way of working with horses to shape the future of leadership in business. We have a strong order book from blue chip companies, with repeat business from 90% of our clients, and we are delighted to be recognised externally by the equine industry as well. We delivered our first international contract in June this year and hope to expand this in 2017. We took a huge leap of faith when we left our successful corporate leadership careers but business needed a new way of learning that created fast and sustainable results, and we knew that horses could help make that step change.”
“There is nothing else like these awards in the industry,” said Roseanna Sunley, Director and Founder of E-Dressage Ltd, which hosts the Equine Awards. “Success in any sector of the equine world does not come easy. We wanted to celebrate the hard work and dedication that equine companies provide to clients and the entrants certainly gave the Judging Panel a difficult job. They have risen to the challenge though, and the final selections represent the very best in every sector of the Equine world. For The Leadership Whisperers to have been named as a finalist for 2016 is an achievement of the commitment to working with horses in an innovative and breakthrough way.”
Let’s wait and see what happens at the AWard ceremony in October. Until then, we will be crossing fingers, toes and hooves!

The Leadership Whisperers help senior leaders develop embodied leadership skills that have a profound impact in business. Through live events and workshops, Jude and Emma partner with horses who provide non-judgmental feedback, enabling clients to identify their strengths and where they get derailed so they can transform themselves into courageous and hugely influential non-verbal communicators.
Our corporate clients report significant results including resolving conflict, cultural change, improving financial performance, increasing sales and individuals gaining promotions.
