Planning a management development programme?

A workshop for HR / L&D professionals

9 May 2018 – London

This short day has been designed to give you a flavour of the modules that make up our hugely successful management development programme.

This very practical, hugely enjoyable day will give you an insight into the delivery techniques and facilitator styles that previous attendees have been so complimentary about. This really is a ‘try-before-you-buy’ workshop. You will be in the role of delegate so you can witness at first-hand how this programme can really benefit your people managers.

And don’t worry – it’s not a sales pitch!

  • If you’re contemplating a development programme for your organisation, it will help you decide whether to design and deliver your own or whether to look for an external provider
  • If you decide to do your own thing, it will give you a few tools and techniques and some sample exercises that you’re free to take away and use as you see fit
  • If you decide to look for an external provider, it will give you a checklist of points to consider
  • And if you were thinking of sending someone on our open programme, or commissioning us to run an in-house programme for you, it’s an opportunity to ‘try before you buy’
