Our Partners


We have worked in partnership with RSM to facilitate the Exercise Movement and Dance UK through the High Performing NGB Model. This has enabled EMD UK, through a diagnostic approach to, drive forwards to being high performing.


The process began with a Board Away Day based on the needs identified by the Chair and CEO to review and redefine the organisation’s market, vision and mission. A key outcome of the day being to bond the working relationship of the Board to ensure the Board were able to think strategically together as a team. This involved Senior Management Team and enabled the Board and staff to work together. By the end of the day there was real clarity on how EMD UK can benefit a wider market to include group exercise which in turn lead to a new and agreed vision.

All involved were briefed on the HPNGB model and its process, which led into Board and staff members feeding into the diagnostic system. The diagnostic enabled a root cause analysis and a focus on the high and low performing areas. Our work with RSM clarified the thinking on what EMD UK needed to focus on to continue to improve and drive forward.

In consultation with the Chair and CEO we designed and delivered a workshop based on their needs around organisational alignment and board composition. Through our flexible approach we supported EMD UK to agree their mission and to align behind this mission going forward. An alignment working group was formed and this group have driven forward the high level action plan into deliverables.


There has been many positive outcomes for EMD UK on the back of this model and our facilitative approach. The organisation has a new vision and mission, a wider reach in the market place and are aligning behind this new focus.
