I have recently delivered Business Skills Academies of four and six days for Lambeth PCT, Oxfordshire PCT, Bromley PCT and Bradford and District Care Trust. These have been exceptionally well received. In addition to providing development workshops I have been commissioned to provide pre-workshop work to engage delegates in the topics beforehand. These have included specially designed booklets with research required on definitions of jargon, national priorities or local policies and practice. These have enabled the workshops to cover a great deal of ground in the time available.
