About Lighthouse


From the very beginning it was all about helping people love their time at work, and we know good management and leadership can make it happen!


Lighthouse opens for business at an office in Little Bealings, Suffolk, with 2 founding directors (including our Managing Director, Gill)

Immediately became an Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) Centre offering a range of qualifications in leadership and management


A big year with several key staff recruits…

many of whom are still with us today!  Including our Director (Charlie), our Sales and Marketing Manager (Roy), our Office Manager (Josh), and our Training Administrator (Rob)
