Why attend a General Management Development Taster Event?

It's a FREE event to discover more about the General Management Programmes at Cranfield University’s School of Management.

Our taster events enable you to reflect on your development as a leader. Topics which will be covered include:

  • The contrasting roles of leaders and managers.
  • Politics and agendas in business.
  • Developing strategic perspectives.

Gain an insight into the real impact of each programme through case studies and research on ‘12 months personal and business outcomes’.

Network with like-minded management professionals during a buffet lunch.

Request a one-to-one session with one of the team to discuss personal and organisational development plans and how these can be addressed by the General Management Programmes for those actively seeking executive development for themselves or their organisation.

“Sharing experiences and knowledge with people from different industry sectors has been an added bonus. Understanding how others run their businesses and seeing the problems that they face is invaluable.”

Ian Worboys, CEO, P3 Logistic Parks - attended Cranfield Directors Programme (2010)

“So many positives have come from my time at Cranfield that have allowed me to stay out of the operational detail and really focus on the five-year strategy.”

Jon Anderson, Director - South Africa, ALE - attended Cranfield Advanced Development Programme (2015)

“Attending the programme was a unique opportunity to take a step back, think about different perspectives and evaluate how I operate now and in the future.”

Greg Clements, Strategic Lead, Sport England - attended Cranfield General Management Programme (2014)

“The programme has shaped my career. I have had a 180º change. I kept a low profile, lacking confidence to share my ideas, now I network widely and understand others’ agendas. As a result, I can easily engage with my senior colleagues.”

Nourah Alhajri, HR Business Partner, SSH - attended Cranfield Talent Development Programme (2015)
