Daring ideas in a safe pair of hands.

Daring ideas in a safe pair of hands.®

Welcome to 10,000 HOURS. We are a professional services firm that is all about skill acquisition for senior executives in organisations all over the world. 10,000 hours is how long it takes to achieve mastery at your craft, and our team spends their hours and days helping senior professionals to do exactly that.

We were once described as daring ideas in a safe pair of hands. We thought that captured the essence of how we work, so we trademarked the line. Everyone in our business is at or close to their own 10,000 hours of deliberate practice at the craft of group facilitation and executive education. These are the safe pairs of hands to whom you can entrust your team’s needs. We are professionals who bring a seasoned eye and pattern recognition. We haven’t seen it all, but we have seen a lot.

The daring ideas emerge from an insatiable curiosity for our craft. We are humble students of the world’s brightest minds and are courageous inventors ourselves. We draw from broad and rigorous influences to meld fresh ideas to generate new thinking and novel behaviour. Our ideas are regularly published in leading business press.

“Just a quick note to thank and congratulate you for another super session with our team… that was a fantastic job you did with everyone, and I am looking forward to continuing our association with you.”

Country Head, Market Leader Professional Services

“I’m getting great feedback on a daily basis from the team all over the world. You hit the mark. Let’s talk about next year’s summer school soon.”

Global Commercial Leader, Tech/SaaS

“That was fantastic. The session was engaging, exciting, creative and funny. I honestly don’t know how you came up with the idea – It was really clever. I got more out of this session than any other session for the day.”

HR Director, Public Sector

“Absolutely brilliant. Very transferable to any aspect of work or home life.”

HR Director, Professional Services

“You knocked it out of the park… again. Great two days. I think this is the first time I have followed up with a “trainer”. I’m usually happy to see the back of them!”

Sales Leader, Tech

“In a 20-year management career today’s workshop was the most profound I’ve ever experienced.”

Business Unit Leader, Global Pharmaceuticals

“You’re right. I was apprehensive going into this. You held proceedings tightly, we covered tricky and contentious ground, and had landmark candid conversations. There is a weight off the team’s shoulders, things are moving nimbly, and the work is getting done. Thank you.”

Group Head, Global Function, Heavy Industry
