Participants have joined us on HotHouse from organisations as diverse as law firm Foot Anstey, organic tea gurus Pukka, financial specialists Francis Clark, and sustainability charity Forum for the Future. 

We’ve welcomed individuals from marketing and fundraising teams, customer services and procurement departments, right through to senior partners and CEOs. Read the story of Richie Perera, Director of the London Makeup School, whose mission was transformed by his time with us.

We've also worked with organisations to create bespoke programmes for their staff. Find out how we worked with Pukka Herbs to create a bespoke four-day residential programme for their staff. 

What people say about HotHouse

We know that we've got the ingredients right when people describe their HotHouse experience as 'life changing', 'transformational', 'epic', 'utterly inspiring', 'the most valuable course I’ve ever been on'...

Here's what a few of them told us: 

'Brilliant facilitators who held the space and enabled the week to work its magic. A joyous and well considered and paced journey which takes you both out and in.'
Alice Kershaw, Heritage Lottery Fund


'I would absolutely recommend the HotHouse programme to others – especially people who want to develop themselves personally as well as professionally. You can’t imagine a course which gets further away from the standard office block and PowerPoint.’ 
Ben Fletcher – Head of Electric Vehicles, Renault 

 

'I felt elated, a genuine feeling of euphoria having resolved in my mind to acknowledge that these things are solvable.’ 
Deborah Ball, Fundraising Manager, Forum for the Future

 

'I felt the buzz, the purpose, and passion that had evaded me for almost a decade of my life.'
Richie Perera, Director of the London Makeup School

 

'We have been nurtured, guided and empowered in a gentle and hugely supportive, inspiring environment.' 
Kirsty Blyth, Inspire UK 

 

'The very act of not being in the classroom makes a massive difference; not having a flipchart, any screens or PowerPoint was amazing.’ 
Duncan Leslie, Corporate Partner, Francis Clark
