Making the Business Case

Many thanks to all the participants who attended the Making the Business Case event at IGEM House in Kegworth today. It was a pleasure to have your company.

The Programme for Making the Business Case can be found here.


“Absolutely brilliant training day – covered the subject in great detail with a wide breadth of experience and practical examples. Excellent training delivery. Kept the day entertaining while ensuring the topic was covered in depth.”

“Very valuable and enjoyable thanks to David’s teaching style. Thank you.”

“David did a great job of making a usually boring topic great fun. I’ve taken away a lot of knowledge to apply to my organisation to make a change.”

This course was thought provoking. It helped me see where analytical techniques can support the work I do reviewing business cases and making effective decisions.”

“Attended the Making the Business Case today in Kegworth. Everything was useful – either a newly acquired skill or a reminder of previously gained training and expansion of those abilities. David added humour and wit to the session. I thoroughly enjoyed every element of the day, which flew by. I didn’t even get hit by post-lunch tiredness. Thank you.”

Having been on the course, I feel much more knowledgeable in being involved with business cases in my work.”

“Easy to learn through fun and interesting applicable examples, demonstrating a really indepth knowledge of the subject.”

“Very informative, excellent subject knowledge and enjoyable presentation.”

“Very enjoyable, quick witted and fun training! The difference between finance and economic models was mind blowing!”
