What our delegates say

Jon Johnson of Nottingham Maintenance Ltd.  Attended our Business Improvement in Construction Module 1, Understanding the Market and Selling.

"The Business Improvement in Construction course was a real eye opener. I feel challenged to re-think and reconsider some of the approaches we have made as a business. I intend to put into practice some of the lessons learnt from the course immediately, which I hope will help to secure my company more business. This course also gave me an unexpected opportunity to network with other forward thinking local construction businesses which was priceless.”
