Note: All scheduled Public Courses will be held as live online sessions via Zoom, until further notice.

There is no compromise in content or learning activities, which we have ensured is the same as in our face-to-face programmes.

Those in positions of leadership require the ability to plan and implement tactically, as well as work and think strategically. As a leader, you must be able to look outside your own area of responsibility for fresh ideas, and develop solutions with the potential to deliver real strategic value to the organisation.
