What our participants say
I wanted to understand what was really happening in the business, but never had the time to step back and look at it strategically. The business diagnostic tool allowed me to really focus on what we could actually do to meet the challenges out there - the programme will have a big effect on the business over the next five years.Nicola McDonnellIrish Whiskey Museum
We faced a real directional challenge – where our company will be in 5 – 10 years – and I found the programme to be very beneficial for choosing the direction we want to go. We can see a tangible improvement in our business as a result of the programme.John O’NeillHamlet Court
