“The AMP is the most influential training I’ve ever been on. A few years on I still refer daily to things I learnt from both the faculty and other students. It perfectly addresses both how we do business, and more importantly why. The most significant thing I gained from the course was confidence in myself as a leader. The AMP is inspirational.”

Course Attendee review Kristy Archer


Advanced Management Programme Graduate

“I valued ideas on employee engagement and ways to create more cohesive, supportive and empowered teams. The course helped me to appreciate the critical importance of innovation, business improvement, and enhancing delivery to customers via managing relationships with the external and internal customer. “On a personal level, as a result of this programme, I am much more aware of my behaviours and ways of communicating, and how these may impact on those around me. This has not only resulted in a shift in my workplace relationships, but also in my role as a wife and mother. It’s about understanding how to get the best from people!”
