LEADING GROWTH FOR TECHNOLOGY AND NEW MEDIA
A LEADERSHIP AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME STARTING IN BRIDGEND, SEPTEMBER 2014
Leading Growth offers Senior Managers in SME’s Personal Leadership and Business Development on a presently fully funded programme (European Social Fund) worth £10,671 per person.
Leading Growth has been evolved from a successful programme that we have been running for four years called LEAD Wales. To see some of the testimonials from past delegates of LEAD Wales and further information regarding Leading Growth please click on this link:
The programme has several different aspects. Firstly, as we are bringing people together to work on the business, it is important to form relationships based on trust and we do this during an Overnight Experiential Learning Event which is held at the Coed Y Mwstwr Hotel in Bridgend. (All costs covered apart from incidentals and any drinks you may order at the bar). This will be held on the 1st & 2ndOctober 2014
This is followed by cohort days once a month over ten months. During the days you spend with us, we bring in Master class presenters who are experts in their nominated field. This is usually a morning session. One example of a Master Class speaker is Sid Madge who runs a company called ‘Madhen’. Sid talks about Branding and you can find more details at http://www.madhen.uk.com/ . There are 5 other Leadership and Business related Master Classes in addition to Sid’s.
In the afternoon we split into three groups and run Knowledge Action Sets where you will have an opportunity to raise an issue or challenge you are facing, and the group will help you to work through it.
Other elements of the programme include a shadowing exercise, five sessions with an experienced Business Executive Coach and an accredited ILM Level 5 qualification.
To be eligible for the programme and funding, the SME’s must satisfy the following criteria:
- · Be a Senior Manager, Director or Owner-Manager of a SME or Third Sector / Social Enterprise
