2015 delegate feedback: Brooke Curtis, J Walter Thompson:
“Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the Business Leadership course. It exposed me to some of the great and the good of the industry - in both the speakers and the delegates. It gave me time away from the day job to learn, discuss and reflect on the challenges of leadership. And it taught me valuable skills, which I am sure I will be putting into practice for many years to come.”
