Ron was careful to tailor his content to suit the varying ability levels of the participants and he remained open throughout to feedback/cues from his audience as to pace, level of delivery.
Extensive written material was provided. Ron also took some time before the programme to gain a deeper understanding of our business before coaching staff”.

Everyone was left wanting more”.

Roberta Budvietas

Roberta Budvietas
CEO and Managing Director, Budvietas.com Ltd

“With over 20 years management experience and many hours serving on committees and not for profit boards, I wanted to learn the difference between management and governance and identify how I could become a valuable paid board member for business and community organisations.

Since joining the course, I have learned the difference between governance and management and the questions and thinking required to make a useful and effective board member. Ron and Francis continue to challenge my perceptions and help me become more aware of the decisions a board member needs to make to be effective and useful.

The knowledge I have already gained has helped me better support the boards I serve on”.

Kessie

“Ron made a huge difference to my understanding of my role as a manager and how I related to the governance of the organisation.     He emphasised the importance of the culture of our organisation saying we needed to look sharper and we have undertaken the ideas he gave us for this

I appreciated his professional approach to management and governance – his training lifted me from caregiver/manager, and elevated me to a much higher level of understanding of my role in the business.

Ron’s teaching and advice was clear and easy for me to both understand and implement.”
