“The term “Company Director” is so embedded in common parlance that it’s easy to assume we know what it means and get on with our day to day working life. The course packed in a lot into a single day, and it was engaging and easy to follow. I learned more from the course than I expected (us directors always think we know everything…) and I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to be a better director.”

“I decided at the last minute to attend the Fam Biz Directors course; Sue and Dave could not have been more helpful. I think our initial thoughts were that it was going to be dull and boring! How wrong we all were! Phil who presented the Course was not only an expert and very knowledgeable, but he made sure it was an engaging day of learning; we all left buzzing and ready for action.”
