Previous participants said:

“It exceeded my expectations. Challenging and diverse case studies, great teams and excellent coaching” Hasan, Cantab Capital, 2016

“It made a real change to the usual “training” structure, of talk, group, work, feedback, talk.  I really enjoyed how practical and hands on the course was, despite being incredibly nervous” Amy, UCL Widening Participation, 2016

“It enabled me to not only test out different styles of management but give the team the opportunities to experience what it can be like in a team in the ‘real’ world.  It was great fun” Jonathon, Wellcome Trust, 2016
