    What gets me out of bed in the morning....

    Gillian Davis

    Author | Coach | Trainer | Founder

    At First Time Leader, I believe that the success to any business is the talent they have in house.


    I focus on developing talent, to ensure companies not only attract and recruit the best, but develop their future business leaders.


    A recent statistic publish by HBR.org read that the average age managers receive their first leadership training is at 42.


    I am on a mission to bring that average down by at least 10 years.

  • I've worked with some great people!



    What some of my customers think.

    Ross: COO, Dice.fm

    The antithesis of traditional "management" training, Gillian's support has helped us become a more compassionate, more aligned, more productive organisation. From creating a culture of easy, constructive feedback through to streamlining the hiring process and the implementation of company wide strategies she delivers enormous business value and will inspire managers of all levels to become better leaders.

    Katie: Community Manager, Pinterest

    An inspiring and thought provoking session about authentic leadership at work

    Matt: Divisional Director, Insurance

    Made for a refreshing change from watching 50-something men talk about how successful they've become but give very little relevant advise, which is what most of these talks usually are.

    Karin, 30: Account Manager, Media

    An aspect that stood out was the content and delivery of the workshop; each section was broken down into manageable straight forward sections, free of industry jargon and blue sky fluff and allowed time for discussion and dialogue. These were also complimented with the speakers own anecdotes which provided an authentic approach which left you feeling like you were not alone in some of the issues you will or have previously faced.

    Peter: Head of Product (Maps), Telecommunications

    The best corporate training I've ever had. This blew my company's internal training out of the water. Great to have practical and real time examples on how to engage and build my team.
