I had reached a point in my career where strategic planning, leadership and the management of change were all important parts of my role. I wanted to increase my confidence in these areas, improve my knowledge and skills and challenge myself academically. The face-to-face teaching blocks were a fantastic opportunity to learn about other organisations and sectors, both as part of the course curriculum, but also from interacting with the other students and finding out about their roles and organisations.
