Welcome to Liz de Wet Leadership Development, a boutique organisation that specialises in niche leadership programmes. Together with my partners, I run a select portfolio of custom designed leadership and executive team interventions for the clients we partner with across Africa, North America, Europe and the Middle East.

We focus exclusively on building leadership practice and our programmes are known for the sustained, visible impact they deliver to the leaders we work with.

The organisation is built on a model of collaboration with key individual and institutional partners to ensure that we are lean, agile and immediately responsive to the specific needs of our clients and the changing context.
