Luke Cornish co-founded timto, an innovative online gift and fundraising platform. In this case study he describes how the programme developed his decision-making capability and exposed him to a valuable network of contacts.
“There were numerous high quality networking opportunities on the 20Twenty Programme. In addition to providing a platform to consult leading business figures, the programme’s participants and tutors added great value by sharing opinions and adding a new perspective to my business life.”
DEVELOPING BUSINESS KNOWLEDGE & NETWORK
For Luke, the highlight of the 20Twenty Growth Programme was the personal development modules and the 1-2-1 executive coaching. The programme was an opportunity for Luke to take a step back from work and to reflect on the business, enabling him to make better strategic decisions.
He says, “The programme was invaluable in helping me to identify the strengths and weaknesses of myself and my team. Importantly, it helped me understand how to manage these factors within the context of the company.”
Luke found that the programme offered him the chance to reflect on his role and undertake some key developments at timto.
He says, “The programme identified the need to consider succession planning in more depth and highlighted the key requirements of investors, whether they were private, venture capitalists or governmental.” At the time, Luke was able to form an excellent relationship with a professional services organisation to work on some exciting projects.
The programme also offers an opportunity to harness a powerful network of peers across sectors. Luke explains, “There were numerous high quality networking opportunities on the 20Twenty Programme. In addition to providing a platform to consult leading business figures, the programme’s participants and tutors added great value by sharing opinions and adding a new perspective to my business life.”
