“I was rather surprised at how much I actually enjoyed this course. Perhaps it’s a little more insight into the actual way the “game” of big business is played by those in a leadership role. I also found the use of the traditional KPIs to be most useful in analysing a business.” Emil, Delegate from Stockholm

“Very impressed with the instructor. I usually have difficulty focusing for longer periods of time, especially when one person is doing most of the talking but this day just flew by.” Douglas, Oracle

Better than any learning session or university course I have taken.
