​Course Content​

The programme duration is 10 months and this is divided into six, two day workshops. The first half of the programme is designed to acknowledge and develop your own leadership style through a series of practical workshops and individual executive coaching. In the second half of the programme, a series of Master classes are provided on innovation and new thinking on a variety of business themes - including, Lean processes, creating a brand, maximising sales and making the business 'investor ready'.

The practical elements introduced throughout the programme are supported by opportunities to achieve a range of qualifications from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) including a CMI level 7 Certificate in Leadership together with a Postgraduate Certificate (PgC) in Sustainable Leadership. Following successful completion of the PgC, 60 Master-level credits will be obtained and these credits can be used towards the new Executive MBA . Students also have the option of continuing their studies to achieve the designation Chartered Manager or 'CMgr'.

However, the main objective of 20Twenty Leadership programme is to get participants to develop a three-year growth strategy for their business or department. Hence all the workshops and assignments are based around the needs of the business in driving sustainable growth. This is what makes this programme different from other leadership development programmes - it will provide sustainable results with tangible benefits.

  • Leadership and Team Building
