"One of the most informative and interactive professional development training courses I have attended in the last five years."

"From a less senior position, and speaking to many of the CEO's at the course, I have taken more from it than they have. For an upcoming CEO I would thoroughly recommend the program."

" Fantastic. I encourage all CEOs and prospective/aspiring CEOs to participate in the program. A very relevant program that is essential learning for aspiring leaders in local government."
