Kindness Transforms with Stephen Gould and Chris Cooper

As Managing Director of Everards Brewery in the UK, Stephen Gould and team are delivering an incredible family values driven legacy. As an integral part of their beautiful new office and craft brewery complex – Everards Meadows, thousands of Leicestershire people are now enjoying the freedom of walking, cycling, a picnic, café, bike hire and cycle trails courtesy of 70 acres of private land transformed into an area of public recreation and environmental biodiversity.  Together with tenants and employees they have also been collectively navigating the challenges of Covid through kindness, common purpose and innovation. I have known Stephen as a friend and client for over 20 years admiring his progressive leadership and industry impact. In 2019, he was recognised as one of the 50 leading lights in Kindness and Leadership in the UK. Join us as we explore how kindness and vision will bring people closer together to deliver transformational value for all.

Chris provided an incredible emotional intelligence program for my business. Chris delivered a series of eye opening sessions which enhanced the approach and style of our customer engagement. He also introduced a new positive and motivational language that empowered our people into making a difference. Relationships fos-tered after Chris’s guidance resulted in significant and measurable competitive ad-vantage. Many of the team wished they had received Chris’s input much earlier in their career. As a result of Chris’s contribution our business results improved significantly over the short and long term. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris to others.
