Hayley Rogers

Creative Director

Hayley Rogers has worked in a variety of industries as a creative consultant and business advisor, always questioning the ‘why’ of workplace practice and looking to develop creative solutions where others may not see them. Hayley creates the scenarios for the High Performance Programmes, as well as content for the Edinburgh Napier University credit-rated Event and Crowded Space Programme and Executive Education Programme, all of which are designed to challenge the notion of what creates a great management team, by providing dynamic and immersive experiences. Hayley’s key interests are communication, social interaction, and empathy, all of which she researched as part of her Sociological studies at the University of Bristol, and have served her well in her role, which sees her delivering programmes to some of the most renowned crowded spaces, event venues, and festivals in the world.
