Leadership Academy Leadership Program


I greatly enjoyed Leadership Academy in Denver. I along with the other individuals have decided to meet regularly to compare notes on our action plans and collectively use the program materials to better our business. You have made an obvious difference to this group and to our entire organization. I hope we can bring this program over to the UK in the near future." – Frank Hensley, Vice President and General Manager, Hewlett Packard
