Alliance Medical is Europe’s leading independent provider of imaging services, delivering high-quality diagnostic solutions in partnership with public and private healthcare organisations. The company has helped customers dramatically improve end-to-end imaging processes, quality of care, and patient outcomes over the past 20 years.
After working for large corporations throughout his career, Ian Hunt experienced an identity crisis, poor communication skills and a lack of confidence during his role as Alliance Medical’s Director of Commercial Finance. Driven by a desire to fit in with the nature of corporate culture, he began adopting the behaviours of his colleagues and mistaking their actions with success.
In doing so, Ian drifted from his authentic self. Despite his impressive career success, Ian found that maintaining a façade was becoming exhausting and desired a more fulfilling career journey, one that aligned with his authentic self.
Inspired by the Leadership Trust’s experiential learning style, Ian enrolled in the Leadership in Management Programme. While being in a safe environment, he discovered that leadership is about who you are, not the role you are in. This realisation brought him a renewed sense of relief along with a clear vision for his future goals.
The 5.5-day fully immersive experience brings together diverse leaders from various industries for a journey of self-discovery and increased self-awareness.
Leadership in Management helps business leaders find their purpose; achieve personal and professional growth; develop their leadership style; and boost confidence within their organisations.
Beyond business, the programme offers valuable insights into work-life balance and personal relationships with 12 months of continued support.
“Absolutely go for it. Genuinely one of the best weeks of my life. It’s more than just a week-long experience; it’s a transformational journey that will help you achieve your goals and live your best life.” – Ian Hunt, Director of Finance at Alliance Medical
After a month of completing the programme, Ian was promoted to Director of Finance at Alliance Medical and introduced a new approach to empathy at the company. “The 12-month continued support has allowed me to build a network of brilliant contacts and gives me reassurance that I will continue to grow,” said Ian.
Ian’s communication style transformed from transactional to authentic, a must for his role in finance where he needs to deliver outcomes. The diversity among participants in the programme helped him boost his confidence to share new ideas, be more engaged and proactive in his work.
