“It is nearly 30 years ago that I was learning in a college environment. I however have no doubt if I had done this at least 25 years earlier it would have made me much better in my management and leadership roles and I now feel better prepared and able to use what I have learnt on a daily practical basis in my role. As the saying goes, none of us are ever too old to learn.” – Chris Davis
