The 2 day Management Boot Camp was very informative and I was able to apply simple principles to my daily working life. It motivated me to become a better manager!
Very informative
Excellent, well presented and managed. There was a good mix between discussion and activities relating to real workplace situations. Very enjoyable and productive. Fantastic at helping to think about the everyday, taken-for-granted actions and responsibilities, highlighting the importance of structuring your engagements in every aspect with your team and organisation.
