Given the time for this course and the large topic and concepts; this was an excellent overview and refresher. It allowed me to hear concepts in a different approach

The world requires more business and public sector leaders who can restore growth, create jobs and increase access to products, services and livelihood opportunities in a resource‐constrained and low‐trust world.

It’s a common paradox that many environmental professionals who get promoted lack leadership training, whilst many business leaders lack knowledge and understanding of sustainability management. Leading Green’s unique Sustainability Leadership & Core Value programmes are designed to ease the transition towards responsible leadership and sustainability helping organisations develop the skills and organisational cultures they will need in future years.
