 Screen Leaders provides participants with the opportunity to take a step back and invest in their own personal development and company development. Our team work with the companies to assist them to plan strategically, influence change, collaborate and communicate effectively. Our aim is to equip the participants with the skills and tools needed to implement their new strategy for their company. Unusually for such a programme the execution steps are mapped out as part of the process and the companies commit to taking these steps to implement their plan while on the programme.
