Berkshire, UK – Wednesday 12 December 2007: Over the last decade, Penny Ferguson Ltd’s (PFL) highly acclaimed Personal Leadership Programme (PLP) has won over more than 17,500 delegates. Designed to enable individuals to become the best leaders they can – both at work and at home – the PLP has proved life changing for individuals from all walks of life, from CEOs of major corporations, to primary school teachers and charity workers. Now, PFL has launched an exclusive online Alumni service, to enable delegates to communicate easily with one another and share experiences and ideas, whilst keeping up-to-date with the latest news and industry thinking.

“The power of the Personal Leadership Programme lies in its simplicity,” commented Penny Ferguson, CEO. “Ask anyone what attributes make for effective leadership and no doubt, listening, how you think and focussing on people's strengths will come high on the list, however often these very simple things are not actually practised by the majority of individuals,” she continued. “It’s more common sense than rocket science! The feedback has always been extraordinary – the PLP provides fundamental enlightenment and enables sustainable change – this is the beauty of the programme.”

One example of a company who has benefited from the power of the PLP is Staples UK Retail. To date, over 300 of its employees have experienced the programme. Ewan McCulloch, HR Director at Staples UK Retail explained, “The results have been remarkable at a behavioural and commercial level. Every individual has commented on the positive impact it has had on them both personally and at work.” He continued: "We believe the PLP has played a major part in the growing profitability of our business - customer satisfaction is at an all time high, commercial KPIs have shown dramatic improvement and our cultural change programme has been accelerated."

Past and future delegates of the PLP are invited to sign-up for the Alumni service totally free of charge at Registration provides access to a whole host of information and features including:

· Bi-monthly e-Zine, The Penny Drops
· Monthly podcast
· 'Search and send' internal messaging system
