I must stay that the "Creative Problem Solving" elective by Valerie that I took at Ashridge has made a huge impact on how I deal with challenges that I face at work. The insights and strategies that I gained reflects years of experience condensed into two days by Valerie. Extremely thankful for the great techniques in problem solving.
One of the most empowering group sessions I was lucky enough to be involved in, was introduced to our team and facilitated by Allan. His relaxed and measured approach enabled the space and time to work through our own hurdles, whilst enabling sharing best practice and having clear actions as a result. A lot of what I learnt in those groups, I still use to this day.
