Management Training that is full of bright ideas

We deliver in-house management training courses and partner with you to select or design bespoke training for your organisation.

Hello, I'm Gilly Meek

I’m a coach and trainer, with over fifteen years’ experience. I founded Gravity ten years ago because I believed there was a better way to inspire and develop managers and leaders.

Since then I have worked around the world with over a hundred different organisations in a wide range of sectors, including FMCG, retail, media, finance and hospitality.

I provide relevant and practical training courses which I deliver in a memorable and engaging way and I’d love to bring these in to your company.
