Beyond 2030


We understand that unlocking economic potential, competitive advantage and growth, needs solutions to be based on solid market research and Labour Market Intelligence, a clear perspective and invaluable insights.

Our team have crafted an intelligent approach to working with public, private and third sector leaders and decision-makers, providing a suite of research and LMI services that can help them to develop smart and well-informed strategies.

Our services include designing effective research techniques, developing in-depth knowledge, accurate & insightful market research, reporting & strategic insight, analysis & interpretation and practical, pragmatic solutions.

We are thought leaders in talent strategy, future trends and diversity, with specialisms in young people, women, third age, social inclusion, leadership and organisational development.

By developing innovative and bespoke solutions, framed by demand and not bureaucracy, we deliver robust research, business growth, sustainable employment, skills and training outcomes. We work to help organisations and individuals to broaden and diversify their talent and help to support Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and community relations programmes and specifically to help local people get local jobs.

With 200 years of combined experience in talent and skills research, design and delivery of competency based frameworks, graduate and leadership development centres and subsequent tailored solutions,  we have worked across public, private and voluntary sector organisations including FE and higher education establishments. 

We have extensive experience of delivering throughout the talent pipeline from pre-employment, Talent Acquisition, Boutique Apprenticeships, Foundation Degree and Graduate Programmes, Leadership and Management and other bespoke talent and skills programmes to senior management and Board level support and facilitation.

We create solutions, putting the needs and ambitions of our clients at the centre of all programme development. What enables us to achieve our outstanding results is our DNA, developed by us and the bedrock of all our programmes. This innovative approach is based on sound research and is proven to realise latent potential both for the individuals and organisations we support. Our model uses proven approaches (Emotional Intelligence, Resilience, Mind-set, Belief and Identity) blended to un-tap the motivation and potential of each and every individual and business we engage.

Social Leadership

The Social Leadership Model, we have a very good understanding of this model and have indeed been delivering our own version of this in the field for over 3 years, working closely with the third sector, Barnardo’s, and through the Milestone foundation with Lord Patel of Bradford, The Metropolitan Police and the Borough of Tower Hamlets. We’ve worked with JCP/Department of Work and Pensions in Southend, Bromley, Lewisham, Leeds, Barnsley and Doncaster, local authorities in Bedfordshire and the local authorities of Doncaster and Leeds, as well as the Rank Group. We are currently working in the London Borough of Hackney with Care UK, the YMCA and The Princes Trust, to establish a new programme, whilst delivering in Bedford and Luton.

Our programmes especially work with young people, predominantly those who are Young People Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET), from socially disadvantaged backgrounds, however many of the young people we work with are Graduates.

Our programme delivers a model of personal and social leadership, mapped to an Institute of Leadership Management (ILM) Young Leader Award. The programme is underpinned by our unique red threads around developing Resilience, Emotional Intelligence, Mindset, Belief and Identity, a culminates in the candidates delivering high impact solutions and ideas to real live issues through community, voluntary and employer projects and employers. Our results are outstanding and 20 - 30% above national average for this group where 98% of our learners successfully complete their qualification and transition to further education, apprenticeships, employment and self-employment.

Why Choose Us

I wanted a better financial quality of life and to stop plodding along, parts of success can be measured by fast cars and assets! I knew a woman like Toni Eastwood wouldn’t put her name to an average programme. I found the Visionary Women’s Programme different and much better to any training programme I have previously done. I really enjoyed the peer support of the other business women in my group.

Keely McBride, Founder, Face Perfect Clinic, Leeds

I didn’t think I needed it but boy Beyond 2030 proved me wrong! The Visionary Women’s Programme created clarity and the reassurance that what I am doing is the right journey. The programme gave me the confidence I needed and showed me the importance to take every opportunity that comes.

Lisa Dryden, Owner, Erase, Goole

The programme has been really useful in giving me confidence and renewing my determination as well as gaining clarity and prioritising activities at work and at home to achieve my goals.
I have already implemented many of the changes needed to move our business forward including accelerating my original five-year plan. I feel a much stronger person for taking part in Visionary Women.

Tarnia Hudson, Director, Hudson Moody, York

I wanted to thank you for the Spearhead Training initiative you have helped us with, delivered by Pauline Stewart.

The team have really enjoyed the sessions. Each person has shown that they have absorbed the training and feel valued. From a business perspective, we now have some tangible tools to use in the business. I am confident that this will help us improve, innovate and tackle problems quickly and effectively. Do please pass on my thanks to Pauline. She really did take time out to understand our needs, and then delivered the training in a bespoke way, that exactly matched the brief.

I would definitely recommend Beyond 2030 to anyone considering training for their organisation.”
