The exercises showed me that I actually have clarity about what I would like to do. And also how much I have to learn and do to minimise the risks. I had not really thought of my goals in this way before in depth.
A well paced, comprehensive and practical kick start program. The content is succinct, with laser focus on what a transitioning executive may need. Presentation is professional, yet comfortably personable and life like, with a down to earth mentor panel and a genuinely engaging facilitator.
