Leadership for positive impact

"ESA has a beautiful ambiance in nature; excellent for learning" - Dr. Ioannis Pappas, Sustainable Tourism Council, Greece

A truly inspiring venue for events

Host your event at ESA

Powered only by Cretan sunshine, ESA is a beautiful building rooted in the earth amongst ancient rocks and olive trees, surrounded by nature. Its construction is a leading example of sustainability in practice. ESA is an experiential and creative place where people feel enlivened, uplifted and creative. Great living and great learning happens at ESA. A perfect setting for:

Leading enterprise for the future

Leading sustainable business

Our passion is contributing towards co-created sustainable enterprise for positive impact on communities and the natural environment on a global scale. Leadership and entrepreneur issues of adaptation, resilience, authenticity, sustainable-self, values connected sense-making and the continued emancipation of women (WISE) to take up more leadership roles in the world are at the core of the ESA sustainability experience.

Sustainability created in Crete

Your sustainability experience

Crete is the sustainable destination of the past and of the future.

createdincrete

Home of the Minoans, one of the earliest civilisation on earth, nestled between Europe, Africa and the Middle East, Crete is rich with mythology, gastronomy, music, art and agriculture. You can have your own authentic experience of a sustainable lifestyle and feel first hand the strong connection between nature and community. ESA is thrilled to collaborate with Cretan Urban Adventures to co-create an 'immersive experience' for a richer connection with LIFE!

 

 

Introduction to ESA

 

What we do

A previous session at Drapanos

ESA is committed to providing international, high calibre management learning for the development of skills, knowledge and experience necessary to grow organisations through the practical application of sustainable business models.

Sustainable business needs new thinking, innovation and creativity which is rarely provided by mainstream business teaching. ESA founder Sharon Jackson has been teaching and lecturing on sustainable leadership and management since 2000, and believes that busy executives can focus on the principles of sustainability in a more meaningful and practical way when energised by a rich ecological backdrop.
