We have been very happy to have Kyran and his team in our organisation. Developing leaders and leadership competencies has been a priority for us for some time now, and we’ve benefited greatly from having ODI on the journey with us. We had the flexibility to set our learning areas and Kyran’s team of capable presenters then developed the programme content to fit.  We’ve seen a real improvement in competency across our range of participants, and particularly at our team leader level.
