Success Masterclass

One day

A powerful course that will give you the means to change your life

Professor Ken Rea originally created this course for the renowned Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London. Over the past 12 years it has proved hugely successful in helping people feel more in control of their circumstances. He has delivered the course, in a condensed form, in diverse London communities, and to executives in global companies, again with great success.
