"This programme has allowed me to develop practical skills within the workplace. As a result of the programme, I have felt more motivated and inspired. I now feel more confident in my abilities as a leader and I feel able to make use of my strengths and work on my weaknesses."

"The biggest benefit we see from staff who attend Common Purpose programmes is their growth in perspective. That development of perspective, and the ability to understand and empathize with the positions of others (in different situations), is such an invaluable leadership trait."
Tracey Carney
Managing Director, Business & Finance Media Group
"I found the Common Purpose program a fantastic experience on both a personal and professional level. There are very few courses you can do where you get to look inward and reassess the type of leader you are so that you can evolve into the leader you would like to be."
