“Sam Whipple’s leadership course is ideal if you want to develop or change your leadership style to become a more receptive manager. It blended theory and practice, giving us the opportunity to try out what we’d learnt. As a small charity team, all our staff are required to demonstrate leadership skills whether it be towards volunteers, contractors or colleagues. Sam’s course provided useful tools to enable us all to do that.” Grisel Tarifa, Director of Operations & Finance, Pembroke House.
