Format of the meetings

Norfolk Leaders Crew
Video: Crew meeting on the Wells and Walsingham Light Railway

The Norfolk Leaders Crew is made up of Business Leaders, Charity Leaders, Community Leaders and occasionally Future Leaders, from Norfolk, England. Members attend monthly meetings which run 08.30-11.00 (after breakfast), in interesting locations throughout the county.

Crew membership is open to any Norfolk Leader, who is able to sign up to our beliefs, and is prepared to make the commitment to engage with their peers. We are not a networking group.

Typically crew members are the senior person in your enterprise, usually the MD/CEO and has at least 5 people reporting to them. Members come from a wide range of business and education backgrounds and include commercial enterprises, charities and not for profit enterprises, as well as professional firms, manufacturing, services and retail. As a guide for size, enterprise scale tends to be £200k up to tens of millions in turnover.

Business leaders are charged sub-commercial rates and charity leaders pay roughly half these. For current prices contact Charlotte at

The main cost for the leader is in a commitment of time. We expect leaders to commit to 10x 2.5-hour sessions a year (from a choice of 14).

There is nobody better for a leader to confide in than another leader ... CPD for leaders ...

Inspired by the spirit of Horatio Nelson, we support, encourage and develop the leaders of today and the leaders of tomorrow.
