      A Trainer's View

      ʺ There is a lot of added value in this short professional and intensive course. This is not a traditional training course, but more an opportunity for senior level personnel to discuss and explore key, pragmatic and real-world issues with both their peers, and combine coaching with professional development, drawing upon the outstanding depth and breadth of international expertise and experience of their senior level leaders, specialists and trainers.

      Our objective is that by the end of the course, you can confidently author, develop, drive and lead the strategic, transformational, operational and resilience agendas your organisation sets to address and meet the challenges it faces and to not just survive but thrive.ʺ
