Customer testimonial

I'm very happy to complete my Impellus level 3 open management course, I enjoyed all of the 5 days learning and interacting with all the other attendees.

Leon Jones , Cambridge Fire Research Ltd

The 3 courses I attended were really engaging and thought provoking. Leadership and strategic thinking, the business models, the techniques have developed since my time at business college. For me if you are not learning you're not improving as a leader and manager. The Impellus course delivery by David Ross was superb, the course literature quality also. An enjoyable experience all round and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Impellus to others.

Mike Harmer , Schaltbau Transportation UK

The range of subjects and topics covered by the Impellus courses gave me the opportunity to consider new strategies to use and develop within my management role.

Having the opportunity to discuss each topic with other individuals from a range of industries and backgrounds helped to provide further context and allowed me to consider alternative

ways to approach and deal with both people and situations.

Thank you Impellus for the  positive experience.

 

Una Stewart , James A Cuthbertson Ltd

Really enjoyed the course especially the Organisation Leadership and Strategic Thinking and Decision Making courses, which I have been able to use and contribute within our business already.

Lorraine Brown , ICS Roofing

The course was very interactive, which keeps you engaged and helps you to make the most of the things taught, rather than just passively absorbing them. David Ross was very friendly and knowledgeable.
