Cheese facilitates a very engaging and pragmatic leadership awareness and development program.  The content is current, relevant and research based with a good balance of personal experience.

Course Participant

Working with Strategic Self Awareness has been great for my professional development. Carrying out Hogan reports has helped me discover, as well as confirm which traits are high and low in me. This has opened my eyes to how I interact with my work peers and what effect it can have on them as a leader.

Ashley Cheeseman (aka Cheese)



Ashley has been assisting Fire and Emergency New Zealand with delivery on their new Incident and Leadership Development Course (ILDC). The ILDC provides Fire and Emergency New Zealand’s officers with a week of leadership development and a week of tactical command training via state of the art simulation software.


He was first brought on to deliver one day of experiential learning and team building, but due to his vast experience in leadership facilitation, we realised he had a LOT more to offer the course.


He worked with course participants to understand their personalities better. He then helped them to build on their strengths, and to recognise their weaknesses, enabling them to be better leaders, commanders and managers.


Ashley now delivers all non-operational leadership content on the course and is also instrumental in shaping the ILDC course itself as it evolves and develops. His personable presentation style and breadth of experience in facilitating leadership delivery saw him quickly become an integral part of the delivery team.
