Building and strengthening leadership skills for highly skilled professionals in the field of European Nutrition and Health.
I really got so much out of the training – I think every single topic you covered was really useful and I am sure my team will benefit tremendously because of it.

The ENLP Advanced Seminar has been tailored to address the needs of mid-career professionals working in the food, health and nutrition area who hold senior management positions in complex organisations and face a number of leadership challenges. These challenges are diverse, but include performance management of academic / scientific staff, gaining major funding and competing for scarce resources.
Greenbank were appointed to design and run an annual ENLP Advanced Seminar – this is a 4 day programme focused on the topics of:
- Building effective relationships – using the Insights model (link to Insights)
- Stakeholder management
- Building trust (link to Trusted Advisor)
- Effective communication – getting your message across to non-scientists
- Influencing others and decision making
- Negotiating skills
The programme uses interactive discussion, action learning, role plays and exercises set in the context of nutrition and health.
A pilot programme was run in 2011 and as a result of its success it has now been established as a regular offering by ENLP.
Immediate feedback has been great – and even more importantly the group who worked together in April 2011 are still meeting on a regular basis as an Action Learning Group to continue their leadership journey.
One of our 2012 alumni got an immediate ‘win’ from the seminar – using the influencing tips to gain agreement to the establishment of an institute – a long-standing career ambition that had previously proven a stumbling block.
