WHAT MAKES OUR PROGRAMME SO SUCCESSFUL?

Sophie Williams

“Since starting the 20Twenty Programme, I have enjoyed every minute of it. I feel I have benefited from them all – both on a personal and a professional development capacity.

I have already introduced some of the techniques that we’ve practiced in the workshops into my department, and have found that the coaching sessions are a great tool for self-reflection on your current management/leadership style.”

Sophie Williams Admiral
Ben Cottam

“The 20Twenty programme has been an exciting, challenging and personally very valuable. Having the space and opportunity to learn from experts and peers from a range of organisations and to challenge convention on questions around leadership has been vital to me in growing my own leadership skills.

These skills have been important in developing my own role and impact and the ability to develop my network through the programme has been invaluable.”

Ben Cottam ACCA Global

“The 20Twenty Leadership Programme has been inspiring in many ways. It has broadened my awareness and understanding of leadership and sustainable management issues and given me a fresh perspective on the knowledge gained and the tools and techniques learned I can apply to my business.

I completed the PGC certificate in Leadership which enabled me to research areas I had not explored so much in depth. The programme has given me the confidence to innovate and grow my business which was something I was not able to tackle before joining this programme.”

Business Owner

“20Twenty enriched my experience in the workplace, the programme was a great source of learning and support for someone wanting to move their career to the next level. Offering bountiful information that was not just theoretical but offered examples of real life application I have discovered a leadership style that I didn’t know I was missing. 20Twenty re-ignited my passion for learning, and an introduction to a network of professionals that have made an impact on my career and outlook on leadership which I intend to maintain.

I completed the Postgraduate qualification. With executive coaches by your side and first class lectures and guest speakers, this programme will show you the value of theory based concepts and new ways of working.”
