Leadership for positive impact

Programmes Summary

Summary of open programmes and courses at ESA during 2017.


Busy business executives and entrepreneurs with targets to meet and deadlines to hit, understand the rarity of valuable, precious spaces for stepping back from the whirlwind of ‘doing business’ and spending considered, structured and necessary time for developing yourself and your focus.

ESA is purpose built for practical and meaningful immersive learning experiences. This means courses designed with sustainable business and sustainable leadership in mind. You will experience value-added outcomes for you and your organisation, delivered in an energising, reflective and inspirational setting that will stimulate all of your senses and expand your mind. ESA programmes and events promise to inspire, inform and challenge you, whilst delighting you with the beautiful Cretan countryside.

Contact us to enquire about any of our events or about designing your own ‘bespoke’ programme or hiring beautiful ESA in Crete for your own event.

The WE 2017 event will open with the first screening of ESA Founder Sharon Jackson’s TEDx Talk at The Technical University of Crete. TEDx TUC subject was ‘Light Leak’ and how in particular young Greek people, about to graduate and enter the world of work, can find their own ‘golden ribbon’ of light to lead them through the difficult conditions of life in Greece. Understanding how to take advantage of ‘Light Leak’ is important for people of all ages and all nationalities and this is why we have chosen ‘ENLIGHTEN’ as the key theme for this year’s WE Summit.
The ESA Women Empowerment programme is designed for women to learn techniques for empowering themselves and men, and vice versa. Join us for a weekend of enlightenment and learn how to be a ‘LIGHT ATTRACTOR’ and how to ‘MANAGE YOUR GOLDEN RIBBON OF LIGHT’. Hear about techniques to capture and sustain light in your life, and to enlighten those around you for thriving and adapting in a chaotic world!
