“The January workshop was an excellent opportunity to take me out of the day-to-day running of the business and step into the leadership role that I needed. It helped me to clarify my thoughts and it was an excellent chance to network with others as well as work with other like-minded people.” (Ben Fisher, MD AB Energy Ltd)
