The programme has given me greater insight and awareness of the type of person and leader I am - where my strengths and areas for development lie, in a way I haven't realised before. I have been more deliberate in the type of leader I am – adapting my leadership style to different situations.

I think I can speak on behalf of all the WIG members in affirming our appreciation for breadth and depth of the programme that you and the team assemble each year.

"I am a massive fan of WIG. I joined a [WIG Senior Leaders Programme] learning set 14 years ago in 2002. To this day, we as a group keep in touch and aim to meet every year or so just to swap some of the issues and challenges we’re dealing with."
