Invisible Grail is here to help universities and their people connect more deeply with their purpose. Using creative facilitation techniques, we work with individuals, teams and institutions to build cultures based on collaboration, develop strategies that speak to social purpose and enable all to lead to their full potential.

In partnership with our clients, we help people to:

  • Forge successful relationships with the people they work with
  • Unite teams around a shared purpose
  • Have engaged conversations about what matters most and make change happen
  • Deepen connections with students, partners and the community

Examples of projects include:

  • Bringing the social professions together online with London Metropolitan University
  • A student experience leadership challenge with the University of Derby
  • Developing collaboration across the College Education Strategy Group with the University of Exeter
  • Unlocking a new narrative for the Community Engagement Teams at the University of Limerick
  • Executive Team Development with the Faculty of Business and Law at the University of Portsmouth
  • Strategy 2025 development with Heriot-Watt University
  • A strategic narrative for the Department of Social Responsibility and Sustainability at the University of Edinburgh

About us:

We are a small family of experts in leadership and communication.

What drives us:

We’re driven by making a sustainable, positive difference to people’s lives at work.
