our people.

As the challenges we face become even more complex, collaboration is now one of the most valuable leadership capabilities.

For more than 15 years, we have partnered with some of the world’s most exciting companies to help them break down silos and develop leaders who can inspire collaboration.

Working with teams around the world, we have developed a proven approach that ensures the right attitudes, behaviours and conditions are generated for collaboration to flourish.

Miles has led the growth of The Collaboration Company from a start-up into a globally recognised specialist collaboration consultancy. He has seen at close hand a huge range of collaboration programmes and projects across a variety of clients, sectors and geographies.

Miles works with senior leaders who are similarly excited and inspired by the potential of collaboration but often stuck as to how to make it happen. These experiences mean Miles’ advice reflects the realities of collaboration and he is increasingly asked to speak to boards, companies and at conferences on topics such as leadership in the age of collaboration, building collaborative cultures and capability and personal creative confidence. Miles lives in Leicestershire with his wife Tiffany and his three children, who rate his hard-earned certificate as a LEGO Serious Play Facilitator as his standout career highlight.
