Former ballet dancer, Lee Fisher has been appointed as a consultant at Lane4.
Lee has performed at the highest level in classical ballet for 17 years.
He’ll be applying his leadership skills to the world of business where he’ll help individuals and teams to thrive in high performing, competitive corporate environments.
Lee trained at the Royal Ballet School and enjoyed 17 years as a soloist with the Birmingham Royal Ballet.
Since retiring from full time performing in 2005, Lee has made guest appearances in London, Shanghai, Birmingham and Oxford.
He was the Dance Fellow 2005/06 on the Core Leadership Programme – an initiative that identifies and develops leaders in the cultural sector.
The programme included leadership training, mentoring and placements at the Eden Project and BBC2.
Lee co-found and is the artistic director of Freefall Dance Company, a company for young dancers with severe learning disabilities.
Lee Fisher commented: “I’m delighted to be joining Lane4 and to be utilising my performing arts skills to address people development issues in a new environment. Each individual, team or business department will have their unique employee engagement and development concerns. I’m looking forward to working closely with them to help them meet these challenges.”
Ruth Cavender, head of human resources at Lane4 commented: “We’re always on the look out for talented individuals. We’re not necessarily looking for qualified trainers. Instead, like Lee, we’re seeking candidates from diverse backgrounds who don’t necessarily meet set criteria regarding qualifications but they have a ‘degree in excellence.’ From our experience, candidates from the worlds of psychology, organisational development, performance and elite sport make great Lane4 performance consultants.”
