Bright Purple Academy

What is the Bright Purple Academy? Located within our headquarters in the heart of Edinburgh City Centre, the  Academy is a purpose built facility designed for meetings, seminars and other events. While it is used for internal training programmes to help develop our own Bright Purple people, it is also available to external companies and organisations which require a modern, high quality meeting space.  

The Academy holds up to 40 people seated with a flexible layout which can be adapted to suit your requirements. The facility is fully IT compatible and comes with an LCD Projector, an electric projection screen, surround sound and free Wi-Fi.  

The Bright Purple Academy is a fantastic facility which is available for public use when it is not in use by Bright Purple or its partners.

Upcoming Events

21/11/2017, 18.00-21.30  Deal Crash Analysis - Dragging the Black Box from the Wreckage of Your Lost Deal

We are excited to invite Daryn Mason to present an engaging session on the science of analysing the loss of business deals. It is easy to celebrate success and perhaps equally as easy to hide your head in the sand when things do not go to plan, but figuring out why things went wrong can add a lot of value to your business and ensure future wins! 

To find out more and to book your place, please go to our dedicated Meetup Group or contact us directly.

22/11/2017, 9.30-16.30 Performance Climate System® - A unique new opportunity for Business Performance
We are delighted to welcome Performance First Specialists Gordon Mackenzie & Chris Whiteley to host a full day event in the Academy. This is an opportunity to become an accredited PCS practioner for FREE!*

PCS® is the tool of choice for organisations who understand performance. PCS® provides a snapshot of Team Climate, which enables leaders to focus on preserving what’s working within their teams; and critically addresses what’s not. It identifies gaps in perception between leader and team members; highlighting potential areas of conflict, disconnect, misalignment and miscommunication. Finally it provides insights into where the leader needs to focus effort - in the most effective order - to achieve and maintain high performance.

Based on over 30 years experience and research, this is a unique tool used globally by some of the world’s most successful companies and world class sport teams to help create and maintain high performing leaders, teams and organisations.

*NOTE: This session is specifically aimed at professionals in the people business, whether you are management and business performance consultants, HR consultants, and performance coaches or people leading project and programme teams, this solution will add value to your skillset. The session is limited to 20 places for people in these professions and your ability to attend is subject to those job descriptions and responsibilites.

To find out more and to book your place, please go to our dedicated Meetup Group or contact us directly.

11/01/2018, 18.30-21.30  Big Fish, Little Fish; Rethinking the Innovation Box

Kicking off 2018 with a bang, we are proud and delighted to welcome our friend and a co-founder of Culture Consultancy, Derek Bishop, to the Bright Purple Academy where he will share his thought-leadership around building a culture of innovation.
