Sync was the programme Sarah and I were longing to go on. It didn’t exist, so we designed it.

Sync Leadership is a disabled-led programme exploring Deaf and disabled leadership, founded in 2008 by Sarah Pickthall and Jo Verrent, two disabled leaders based in the UK.

The programme combines leadership theory with one-to-one coaching, supporting participants to develop their leadership potential. Sync has already run programmes in Australia, South Korea, Singapore, the UK, and now in Canada. We have successfully completed Sync in Ontario in August. We are now recruiting for a new cohort in Quebec.

As one Sync course closed in sunny Adelaide, Australia 5 years ago, @joverrent & I are still here, opening a new Sync space this Monday in the Fall of Quebec, Canada. Such strange surreal times for us to #SyncThink our way into a more representative arts and culture future & more #Deafled #Disabledled strategic thinking #Coaching #leadershipcoaching #leadershipdevelopment @britishcouncilcanada @canada.council @vibrafusionlab @sarahpickthall @pickthall_coaching www.syncleadership.com ...

‘SYNC- the flagship leadership programme for disabled artists in the UK- helped Singaporean disabled artists think of ways to break, remove and work around barriers both in their professional and personal lives.

🎼 Lily Goh is a multi-award-winning Deaf advocate and Director & Founder of ExtraOrdinary Horizons (Deaf Singapore). She is currently working on her research work, ‘Deaf Music: Reclaiming Song-Signing’.

💬 “SYNC has taught me many things, especially coaching. The SYNC training brings positive change in the artists and their works. It also helps realise their potential in their works.” ‘

A dusty pic from the first #Sync programme in Sydney with @artsaccessaust in 2014! @joverrent and I have found #SyncLeadership shares how Deaf and disabled leaders can work and weave their leadership within societal constraints. The first of two programmes in Aus, the second with @access2arts in Adelaide, 2015 #Sync #Deaf #Disabled #Leadership #Coaching - @auscouncilarts supported. #SyncCanada kicks off this month... ...

So great to have sync with seamstress, film & festival maker Sync Australia Alumni, Sofya Gollan @bolshiebird, my morning, her evening. Sharing our Children’s TV histories and when saying ‘yes’ paid off. Since Sync, Sofya has moved from being an employer’s conundrum to having much more clout. More to share of our conversations in May through the new SyncLeadership site #disabledleadership #Lockdown #deafleadership #Sync #SyncAlumni ...
