What will delegates learn?
The collaborative day will ensure you work towards:
- being the best version of yourself, constantly
- having a better awareness of your strengths, purpose, vision and values
- becoming a cross-functional leader, rather than just an expert in your specialism
- having the confidence and desire to create the change needed to push yourself and your organisation forward
Here’s how previous delegates summed up their experience in three words:
“Inspiring, practical, fun” | “Motivating, challenging, enjoyable” | “Visionary, necessary, thought-provoking“
