Through additional workshops, guest speakers, events and individualised coaching sessions it will provide a personalised programme of self-development underpinned by an e-portfolio that will form the basis of a personal roadmap to future leadership success.
Aimed at working professionals with business experience, the programme will provide deep insights into business practice and allow learners to immerse themselves into critical self-reflection and self-exploration in order to challenge themselves to become improved leaders in a changing world.
