Step Up Step Across 2021
Working at the pressed middle of organisations can present a very particular set of challenges and in an increasingly complex environment, these stresses are exacerbated. That’s why we designed the Step Up, Step Across (SUSA) programme. SUSA is equally useful for those who are ready to take the next step up in their career or looking to take on new challenges, as for those who are interested in being refreshed, with renewed energy for their current role.
"This is a very high quality development programme. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to others - one of the best of my career!" Ciara Magee, PwC
