What our graduates say
The programme has given me the structure to take on complex questions and break it down into bite sized chunks. The fact that it allows you to do that quickly and in a structured way means you end up having more real conversations as opposed to management speak. The aims of the programme exceeded my expectations - I came away with essential life and career skills.Gerard HolmesHead of IT Audit, Paddy Power Betfair
