Ways we can help in challenging times
We know that businesses are currently facing challenging times, but we believe that continued investment in management and personal development is crucial to assist individuals and companies to survive. As part of our commitment to management education, we want to ensure that we are making our world-class open executive programmes as accessible as possible.
Listed below are just a few ways in which we can help. We recognise that individual and organisational development needs and circumstances are different so we invite you to call us to discuss them. Whether the problem is time out of the office, travel expenses or budget cuts, we may have a solution for you. We are already helping a large number of organisations to continue essential investment in their current and future talent.
Please contact the client co-ordinator for the programme you are interested in (found on the programme web pages), or for general enquiries contact Jane Roberts on 01234 754351 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
