The face of business is changing rapidly – and tried and tested approaches aren’t always fit for purpose. So we need to create strategy differently. But how? We designed the seven-day Strategy Excellence Programme to share the latest thinking, as well as one-to-one coaching.

You’ll learn theory that you live as you put it into practice. Which means that by the time you complete the programme, you’ll be ready to leap with strategic plans you can confidently put into action. 

Detailed programme

This seven-day programme comprises is designed to help you evaluate your approach and hone it to have real impact, preparing your organisation for tomorrow’s challenges. You’ll take part in Strategy Formulation and Strategy Implementation. With expert coaching, you’ll connect the dots: during a live online webinar and a coaching session you'll get individual coaching based on your specific strategic challenges.
