See what some of our past participants had to say about their experience on the Advanced Leaders Programme:

This was achieved by integrating excellent theoretical content, delivered by wonderful presenters, with a range of really user-friendly tools and personal appraisals...
Accounting for Non-Accountants to assist managers to understand and use financial statements; Mastering Sales Negotiations for a sales team; and Project Management for staff from across the business.
The Brightwater Tomorrow's Leaders Programme was designed and delivered for operations team leaders and supervisors of engineering and trades roles – to prepare them for their ‘boss’s boss’s job’. The participants had either trades or engineering qualifications and were either leaders of front-line teams or were engaged in project delivery.
