How do you get to know new business contacts and develop meaningful professional relationships? Traditionally, the answer was on the golf course. However, far fewer people – particularly younger professionals – are interested in pulling on a pair of tartan plus fours and negotiating the unwritten clubhouse cultural rules.
Since 2005, we have been partnering with companies and organisations who require a fresh, high impact and tailored approach to developing their people. Over the years, our customers have asked us about including certification and qualifications in the programmes we design for them.
