Hack Yourself named as a top 100 small business in the UK
A message from our founder, Jack Lowman: 📣
So, so proud of the team, especially Mark Harris and all our trainers, advisors and our wonderful alumni who continue to support us.
We can’t wait to be part of the initiative which is in its 2nd decade, supported by American Express, and showcases 100 of the most inspiring independent businesses.
⚡ Hack Yourself had humble beginnings – just a book that wanted to shake up the self-development market and help people navigate the changing world of work. A few people read it 🙏 and it snowballed...
I then teamed up with the best leaders and coaches to take the spirit of the book and design corporate and non-profit training sessions that build #modernleaders at all levels and #highperforming teams - all focused on the skills you need, right now, in a post-Covid workplace.
It's taken us around the UK, from delivering Government Bootcamps, tutoring through the DMA (Data & Marketing Association) UK, launching a global MasterStart course, guest lecturing on MBA Leadership courses with Coventry University and working with the best brands - we parachute in for the day and give everything we've got to help teams grow.
Hack Yourself is on a mission – to be the driving force behind the people that will shape a future of work we can all be proud of.
Today gives us that little extra boost to continue our work. Thank you!
