  2. If you’ve only got 30 minutes a week to dedicate to your own personal & professional development - how should you use them?

    That was the question I was asked recently by a colleague who had been on a working tour of the Far East.

  9. How can we run workshops that genuinely support effective leadership development?

    Leadership is multi-layered, requires a wide range of skills and qualities, and is difficult to learn and to teach.
