LLEAD is directly responsible for helping me achieve a place at the Leadership table that I had until then found every excuse to avoid! Throughout the year there wasn’t a topic, presenter or speaker that didn’t elevate my understanding of key concepts and principles needed to be effective in my role as a manager. The net result was that I not only benefited from an engaged and resourceful network of colleagues and mentors, but it paved the way for me to move into a managerial position that I had never felt confident enough to pursue, previously. - LLEAD 2016 Grad
