"The SLP gave me some key new insights on leadership. These will persist and pervade due to the experiential and reflective nature of the Programme.
The Programme offers a higher perspective on people, organisations and leaders and I am sure that all participants received some gems. For me those gems were around the needs to adapt leadership style to roles, age and organisation and the power of role clarity. I also gained powerful new insights into the way other people work.
The SLP provided me with the awareness and information to accept their challenging of taking the step up."

"In terms of value gained for time and effort invested, the SLP would rank at or very near the top of the many courses I have attended as a senior NZDF officer.
The SLP gave me greater insights into my own leadership behaviours than any other course I have attended, and provided a set of practical tools that I could immediately use in the workplace."

"The Strategic Leadership Programme is subtle but the teamwork is effective. I learned more than I ever expected from the wisdom of a team working and thinking together."

"The Strategic Leadership Programme at Millbrook was fantastic. The beauty of the program is how it brings together all the elements for a great learning experience, whilst you come away feeling that it was tailored to your individual needs. The week-long journey gives you the opportunity to reflect on your own style and needs, whilst the pre-course preparation and exceptional coaches help you take the best out of every minute. The most effective element, and the one I found most surprising and rewarding, was developing your leadership skills through working closely and openly with the high calibre of other attendees on the program. A truly memorable program, that has and will continue to make a real difference to my leadership, and one which I'd recommend whole-heartedly to others. No matter where you think you are as a leader already, the SLP will help you find the step-up to a new level."
