About Us

“It’s our utter passion for delivering the most empowering experience possible – alongside making society better – that sets us apart.”
– John Loughton, Founder CEO, Dare2Lead

Dare2Lead is proud to be different from any other training provider.

Our organisation was founded in 2011 by social entrepreneur, youth leader and global campaigner John Loughton and formally launched at Windsor Castle in 2012. We began as a grassroots organisation, developing training and support programmes for some of the UK’s hardest to reach communities.

The passion we have for authentic leadership and social justice is inspired by John’s personal journey through struggle to success. Growing up in an impoverished, workless household in Scotland, and blighted by violence, drugs and mental health issues, he has gone on to run a global business, head various political campaigns and engage with many of the world’s most powerful figures.
