Learning Through Business Leaders programme

Learning Through Business Leaders programme

The Learning Through Business Leaders programme, which was first run in partnership with the Northern Leadership Academy (NLA) in May 2008, has supported 28 business directors to date.

Richard Fenwick from Flourish Innovations Ltd and Rebecca Bramwell from My Highstreet Card, participants in the first two cohorts of the Learning through Business Leaders programme said:

“We found the regular group meetings very useful in networking and exposing their businesses and ideas to fellow new business owners. The meetings with other participants on the programme were supportive and the structured approach of the meetings enabled the progression of our business ideas.”

The delivery of Learning Through Business Leaders is aimed at managers of small businesses in and around York. The seminars received a large amount of grant funding enabling their delivery. The Learning Through Business Leaders programme adopted the theme of Surviving & Thriving in a changing world and explored how well positioned a business is in times of economic uncertainty both nationally and globally.

The courses offered at the Business School have benefited each of their participants, many of whom have been able to recognise and develop a new direction which will successfully aid their businesses in the future
