What participants say

"I came away from this short course fired with enthusiasm, and ready to take up the facilitator's challenge to do something with what I'd learnt. The facilitator gave us useful tools and insights into the change process and what we need to do as individuals and as companies to be agile and innovative. The  real value back in the workplace is using the practical tools we've been given to start making a difference in the organisation."
