What previous delegates have said….

“A fantastic course, well worth investing the time to attend.”

“Can’t recommend this course enough, time out of practice with your peers and learning new skills has been invaluable.”

“The course was excellent and Jo was a great course leader.  All the sessions were beneficial and have allowed me to find out some interesting things about myself. The course has helped me to develop ways to deal with different situations.  I found the coaching sessions really valuable. It was also great to meet other Managers working in similar roles.  The course has given me the skills and tools to enable me to become a more effective leader.”
