"For me, one of the best things about the ODI’s Advanced Leaders Programme was its consistent focus on the application of learning to practice. This was achieved by integrating excellent theoretical content, delivered by wonderful presenters, with a range of really user-friendly tools and personal appraisals. In the words of Da Vinci, “knowing is not enough, we must apply”. Having graduated from the course with a personal Leadership Development Plan that’s both aspirational and achievable, that’s precisely what I now intend to do! "(Nicola Woodward, CEO)


This programme has been delivered as a public programme and is able to be customised and delivered in-house.
