Our Academic Team
Martin Brockett Global HR Change & Transformation Lead, NGA Human Resources
"As an HR consultant, I was getting plenty of great experience, but I felt I needed something more to be able to progress my career to the next level. Bridging that gap was a big motivator for me. The knowledge I gained through studying has proved really useful in everything I’ve done since – from setting up my own HR consultancy to working in a specialised role with a global HR provider."
Amanda Cains Human Resources Director, Engage Mutual
Studied: MA Executive & Business Coaching
"My tutors were so inspiring. I was able to tap into their knowledge and develop the skills to become a great leader and a successful coach. As a result, I've been able to influence the behaviours of the board and ultimately change the culture within the business, empowering employees to grow and stretch their abilities."
