"This course has been fantastic. It's enabled myself to take the information I maybe already knew about into specify actionable tasks to make sure this is implemented in the business. I have learnt some amazing new things such as Business Process Models and the Business Chassis."

"An absolutely fantastic course and brilliantly delivered. A real eye opener for me as it's nearly 20 years since I’ve been on any training course. Made me realise how much I didn’t know! Carol's knowledge and experience was fantastic and she explained everything in a manner that was easy to understand 3 days went really quickly but would certainly sign up for another. Absolutely brilliant."

"Great course! Thank you, I have learnt things I have wanted to learn for a long time. I think the timing is great because I know so much more about business than I did 4 years ago so I feel I will 100% implement a lot of these things, financial/ marketing planning especially Carol has GREAT TEACHING SKILLS. Thanks again!"
