What Participants Had To Say...

“While I've taken change management courses in the past, I've struggled with applying what I've learned in the classroom. With the Change Leadership program, Yvonne’s practical examples and hands-on exercises provided a completely different approach, focusing not just on concepts and techniques but how to work with them in the real world.

I now feel much more confident in understanding how to lead change and embody it, regardless of whether I’m pushing up to get buy-in from senior management or more broadly to staff.”

Donna Hales, Manager Climate Action

“I did not feel that I was as equipped as I could be to drive change effectively, but that changed. I strongly recommend this practical change leadership course as it taught me skills that I was immediately able to use in my current project. It also contained a lot of sample scenarios which made it very relatable and easy to apply. ”

Eniola, Lead Business Analyst

“My biggest knowledge gap prior to attending this course, was the educational studies and methodologies created in this field. This course provided me with more confidence in my ability to facilitate change as well as resources and professional support to continue practicing as an advocate for change”

Christine D, Change Advocate & Self Employed

“If you are on the fence, You will walk away from this course with the knowledge and tools that you didn't know you needed, but that are extremely valuable”
