“The nature of the training was unique. Normative styles are 'tell-tell'. This training was very dynamic and totally interactive. So for me, the style of training was a winner!“
“I assume 5 is the most! It factored in a lot of detail to consider all at once and the timescales put pressure on everyone to be very clear about what they did and did not know. With no egos to hide behind it was a refreshing group learn.”
“Compared to all the training I have received this was as close to real life business environment. So I felt like I was making decisions which would make an impact on the business”
“Everyone had to think through all aspects of the business and appreciate the impact our decisions and those of our competitors had on business outcomes. It is very easy in your "day" job to focus on your immediate requirements and lose site of the bigger picture.”
