Another great day running The Budget Holder’s Survival Guide – this time in Stansted.
Comments from today’s event include (with written permission gratefully received from each participant):

“Really enjoyed the style and pace of the course.” – Julie Hendy, Outpatient and Reception Manager, The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust
“The presentation of the day was excellent. How to interpret a budget exercise was excellent, the 7 point plan puts a very different perspective on how to view a budget plan.” – Scott Randall, Technical Services Lead, Mid Essex NHS Trust
“Very funny delivery, lot of witty comebacks – generally a fun day had by all. Continued repetition of outcomes very helpful.” – James Hughes, CHC Development Manager, Herts Valleys CCG
“The trainer made what could have been a very dry subject enjoyable and interesting. Was able to relate theory from day into day to day practice.” – Tracey Brown, DD CHC and Clinical Quality, Herts Valleys CCG

It works every time.
