Quotes from recent participants:
"A personal highlight for me was the raid on the second day. A hands-on approach whereby you are putting into practice things you have learnt, and engaging with organisations on their level was really informative. I think the best part about it was being seen as someone who could help, and armed with knowledge, rather than being seen merely as, 'the youth demographic;' a box that needs to be ticked. That is sadly the case far too often these days.
The main benefit I took from the course was the concept of a personal brand and personal leadership. Although I was aware of these concepts before, speaking to professionals who have put time and effort into defining who they are, their values and management styles, has really helped to focus me on how I wish to be perceived by other people, such as prospective employers." - Patrick Smith, Bolton, September 2011
