Course testimonials 

See below for comments from previous course delegates:

  • Very interesting course, developed my management skills even further after an MSc in Healthcare Management. Scenario situations were very helpful on how to tackle situations in the work place, have mentioned to colleagues about attending future courses. Excellent and professional course.
  • Couldn’t fault the course. I honestly felt empowered and refreshed when leaving.
  • The course exceeded my expectations. It was exactly what I was looking for as a deputy manager inexperienced in managing staffing issues and change management. I would certainly recommend this course to others
  • The course was well run with excellent content. Having been approached to consider a management role I felt the course alleviated many of my concerns and made it feel much more achievable.
  • On reflection I think I learned much more than I thought I had during the course, made me more aware of how to create positive working environments, how to deal with staff interactions, stay positive to lead the team through the hard times all come to mind. Great networking also.
  • This was an excellent and worthwhile course. I am a recently appointed Principal Radiographer and have been feeling quite overwhelmed at times. This course has improved my confidence and working through situations has been really useful.
  • I feel enthusiastic, so just want to say a big thank you because I feel more confident about applying for a promoted post
  • Would recommend this course to anyone either in management or aspiring to be. Thank you
