During these times, we are all having to find new ways to do business and grow. Join The Alpha Group Leaders every month as they talk about leadership, business, entrepreneurship, marketing and ways of beating this crisis. This is the deep value of shared experience and collective intelligence.

The Alpha Group and Noble Manhattan is continuing the FORESIGHT SERIES – our monthly FREE lectures on business growth and leadership.

Join us on 27 April 2023 from 1:00 PM BST for a FREE lecture with Ian Jefferis on Preparing the next generation workforce and supporting the current one.

Many school leavers are ill prepared for adulthood and the workplace. Core life skills are lacking and mental health issues have become more pronounced. For the past six years, Ian has been developing a solution to fill this ‘education gap’ that is now more apparent as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and which companies are striving to overcome.


  1. Ideas for empowering and retaining your team.
  2. A core life skills training programme.
  3. Opportunities to support your local schools/colleges.

Join us on 27th April to gain insights into how to prepare the next generation workforce.

Ian is an Accredited Practitioner Coach with the International Authority for Professional Coaching and Mentoring (IAPC&M), having gained his coaching diploma through Noble Manhattan Coaching (NMC) in July 2020. He joined NMC in 2015 as the UK and Ireland Master Distributor, having been commercially involved with the company since 2003. Prior to that Ian spent 25 years in the Royal Navy as a helicopter pilot and operations/warfare specialist.

For the past six years, he has been working for NMC in developing a coaching and core life skills training programme for children and adolescents. Through this work, and having owned and managed retail SMEs for nearly twenty years, Ian has developed a deep understanding for the needs of this sector both nationally and internationally. Having 2 teenagers of his own, (as well as 2 older children and 5 grandchildren), he is acutely aware of the current pressures on this generation of students as they prepare for adulthood and the work environment. His company changed name and status in November 2022 to Young Minds Coaching C.I.C. – a Community Interest Company (not for profit) to provide training through parents, teachers and others, and to support the next generations of adults.
