“I found the C&M programme excellent for my personal and professional development, refreshing my management skills and inspiring the coach in me. I’ll be adopting the knowledge learned to my practice and encourage senior managers in my organisation to look at a C&M programme for the development of managers at all levels. I found the online delivery great for me to juggle my work commitment with training. Such an enjoyable course, highly recommend.  Susan Walls, Manager, Contact UK
