“We’ve worked with Cambridge Exec to build our scientists’ management skills, with a focus on improving communication and collaboration. The training and coaching were carefully tailored to our needs, and were extremely well received. We’ve seen a marked improvement in project communication as a result of the programme, and our staff have become much more aware of the value of building and maintaining relationships to the success of their projects. The training has provided a fantastic return on investment, and I’m delighted to recommend it to others.”
Craig Mills, CEO, Vizzuality

“The management development programme developed for us by Cambridge Executive Development has been a big success with both the managers who have attended the programme, and the colleagues they work with in their day-to-day roles. The programme included modules looking at various aspects of team development, communication and leadership skills, and concluded with presentations from the delegates to senior managers. Over a year on from the start of the programme, we are extremely happy with the quality and impact of the training, which is now well into its third cohort of managers. We would happily recommend Cambridge Exec to other companies interested in developing first-class managers and future business leaders.”
Amanda Touhey, Markel International
