Alex Wood Project Consultant, Fabric Architecture
I have learned new approaches and techniques for use in a range of business situations; from implementing a strategic marketing plan to making operational improvements to utilising strategies for having uncomfortable discussions. The programme demands that this knowledge is put in to practice in the day-to-day running of a real business and this double loop learning means that LEAD has accelerated my development exponentially, especially in comparison to a purely classroom-based course.
