The Programme re-enforced that you have to go back to change all the time to embed it and make sure it’s  taking root, continues and doesn’t just peter out. It’s not just the fanfare at the beginning it’s the ongoing hard work to keep coaxing it down the road. It’s given me increased confidence around being able to make things change and happen, it exceeded all expectations and was enjoyable and rewarding. Invaluable faciliation of cultural change
David MacPherson, Charles River

This Programme affects the way people involved in change think and act and gives power to the change process
