About Mission

“We are a learning and development consultancy, but we are different. Everything at Mission Performance is about people. The people we work with and the people that make up our team.

We are a diverse group, made up of people from the military, actors, sports men and women, pilots, expedition leaders and business leaders. Despite our different backgrounds, each member of the team has been chosen because we all have two things in common: ‘we all thrive in challenging environments, excelling under pressure’ and ‘we all have a love of sharing our experiences to help to develop others.’

Our Principles

Our aspiration is lofty – it is not just to train you and deliver new skills, it is to inspire and change lives.”

Tailor made experiences


Challenge through choice


Stretching the mind, body and soul


Creating compelling stories


Bringing happiness to work


Return of investment for the individual learner and the buisiness

“Mission Performance are a team of highly experienced, credible and passionate training consultants who have the ability to engage, inspire and empower their target audience at all levels. The Mission portfolio is always practical and useable and is bought to life by inspirational first-hand accounts of often extraordinary events. This makes for a high impact learning experience, which in turn helps achieve the programme objectives. In my view, this is a winning combination. The Programme has received excellent feedback and is widely referred to by the executive community as the “best product”.
