    Unable to run our popular, residential, regional management programme for middle managers in March 2019, we converted it to a virtual conference. Determined to not be 'just another webinar' we worked hard to make it fun and interactive; refreshed the learning content to reflect the new reality of managing remotely, maintaining personal resilience and supporting teams. Delegates said:

  • "Thank you for pivoting the course to be so productive whilst remaining interactive and engaging, despite all the uncertainty and additional planning required."
  • "The content was incredibly relevant to my role. I'm looking forward to utilising some techniques. The session on managing remotely was valuable as it provided a model on change management which provided a new level of understanding for me."
  • "The course gave me a chance to reflect on my management style. Having my management profile and considering each role and what that can mean, was so valuable. It also pushed me out of my comfort zone which I found challenging, but allowed me to focus in on areas I want to develop."
    (Delegates on virtual middle manager programme 2020).
