I have heard that this is a very worthwhile business development programme. It has the added bonus that it is free and supported by the Northwest Regional Development Agency.
Both Salford University and Manchester Metropolitan University are offering the LEAD courses that comprise masterclasses and mentoring.
The LEAD programme is aimed at senior personnel at SMEs in the region (up to 20 people) that are aiming to grow.
MMU is holding a half-day session tomorrow to give a flavour of what it is all about. But if you cannot make it give them a call and I am sure interested parties can learn more and register their interest.
