One of my key development areas I want to focus on is strategic thinking and I felt that today was such a great insight into strategic matters, how to build a strategic vision and how to bring it to life, that I learnt so much. It is with no exaggeration when I say I learnt more in 6hrs than in the first few years at my plc." Senior Executive, Major Retail plc.
