It was good to be out of my comfort zone. It was good to discuss relevant topics with colleagues from other departments and to get their view points and to hear that we're all faced with similar challenges.

It made end of year performance review process more valuable and significant to me and has shown me the best way to maximise the potential of my team.


AIB Capital Markets

Really, really good and enjoyable workshop. The facilitator was very interesting, really held my attention, got everyone involved and there was just the right balance between listening and participating.
