Hopes: An introduction to business management concepts unfamiliar to me. Achieved? Absolutely. Laura Brown was an absolutely fantastic and highly engaging speaker over the three days of the course. One of the best courses I have attended and would highly recommend to my colleagues.

Saadia Basharat, Senior Consultant, Alacrita Consulting Ltd

I thought it was well structured and well delivered.

Anthonia Oluwatuyi, Quality Graduate, Bespak Europe Limited

I hoped to improve my strategic thinking skills and my understanding of how business/project decisions are made and executed.
While such skills and understanding are obviously not improved overnight, I certainly feel that I have learnt a lot and been equipped with tools that will help me achieve those goals. I aim to continue looking at the course material and practice some of the tools in my work.

Daria Dziura, Project Trainee, Tjoapack Netherlands B.V.

Laura was great speaker and very competent. I took this course to get more insight in what leadership is and to get tools and tips in how to manage people. I definitely got what I hoped for to get.

I've really enjoyed this webinar, covering all I was looking for in a short amount of time while keeping it very interesting and interactive along the way. Laura was very impressive, going through a lot of material and always keeping it very interesting. Case studies were very interesting. I also appreciated the use of different interactive tools for exercises.
