“The contents of the program has been amazingly interesting and the composition of the group have done a lot for my overall impression. What also have been very valuable for me is the opportunity to leave the day-to-day perspective behind for a while and make use of wider perspectives.”

“Beyond my expectations, that is for sure. The program has been of high quality and loaded with a lot of “new knowledge”. I am surprised how much of it was new to everyone, regardless of position and earlier experiences. A very successful format for accessing information and knowledge, where the motivation and energy are shared between the participants in a way that creates interesting effects and increased value. Above all, I appreciate the mix and width of perspectives on important subjects, that one can access and adapt to one’s own experiences and leadership style. The openness and communication with both lecturers and participants make it possible to get a lot more out of the program if you want to.“
