Antoinette Dale Henderson has over 25 years’ experience in leadership development and communications, specialising in designing and delivering strategically-driven, results-orientated programmes that make a powerful difference to executives, boards and top teams in the UK and internationally.

She launched The Gravitas Programme to provide leaders and managers with the skills to command respect, inspire a shared vision and get taken seriously. The programme is based on extensive global research into the six qualities that together combine to make up this essential and yet often intangible business skill.

As a published author (Leading with Gravitas, Rethink Press) and professional member of the Professional Speaking Association, Antoinette is regularly invited to deliver keynotes on gravitas, confidence, leadership and promoting the cause of women in business.

Antoinette works across the public and private sectors, with longstanding clients in PR, media, banking, financial services, entertainment, pharmaceuticals, retail, hospitality, law and technology. Her one-day Gravitas Masterclass, held twice a year in London, is open to anyone serious about increasing their impact and influence. Before setting up her company in 2017, she held senior positions at many of the world’s top PR consultancies including Ogilvy and Weber Shandwick.

She is Chair of the Board of Trustees for BelEve, a charity that inspires and empowers girls aged 8 to 18 to become leaders of their world. She lives in South London with her husband and two daughters and loves nothing more than countryside walks, horse riding and sunshine filled holidays.
