Who we are

The QuoLux™ brand has its roots in Latin and means 'whither the light' - providing light in a certain direction for others to follow, which is what leaders do.

We are a Certified B Corp and a world-leading digital learning, blended learning and in-person leadership development business, with a purpose to #InspireBelief within leaders at all levels in organisations. QuoLux™ enables leaders to acquire the skills and develop their confidence to become the best they can be and in turn to coach and develop people in their organisations to be the best they can be.

We know how hard life can be when you’re in charge of a business, running a department or managing a team. It takes a special type of person to take on so much responsibility and develop the range of skills needed to be successful – a task that at times may seem impossible.

Providing business leaders with the support they need

Why should leaders struggle alone when they can gain from each other’s experience and knowledge or from specialist insight? Our aim is to provide business leaders, like you, with the support you need, in-person and on-line, to develop your skills, the skills of your people and improve your business’ prospects.

Founded over a decade ago, QuoLux™ is a family business with offices in Gloucestershire, UK and Salvador, Brazil. All facilitators are qualified coaches with a wealth of experience in successfully leading and growing businesses in home and international markets. We work with CEOs, Managing Directors, Board directors, senior managers and middle managers, right the way through to people in first-line management roles. We help leaders to develop their organisations and leadership at all levels to introduce a shared language and consistent approach.

Making a Positive Impact

We are passionate about leadership and business being a force for good, and recognise that for societies and the world we live in to improve, we need more ‘purpose-led’ leadership – an important driver that connects social impact in the communities we live in and the value that organisations deliver.

We are a Certified B Corporation (B Corp), part of a growing, global community of businesses that are leading a movement for an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economy by pursuing purpose as well as profit.

The certification process is rigorous and means we meet high standards of social and environmental impact, and demonstrate accountability and transparency in our stakeholder governance, as well as a commitment to step into a certifiable framework for continuous improvement.
