What our clients say about this course

I have enjoyed this course much more than I initially expected! Wayne has made it extremely interesting, and I appreciate his efforts on making it suitable and relevant for everyone in the group.

Safety Promotion Lead, Air New Zealand

The course was very good at explaining the Human Factor elements, but was also a generally good leadership course.

HSE Manager, Certis

I found the full course is very beneficial for all of us. It’s really valuable to me, particularly. I liked the the decision making part.

The mixture of practical application and theory flowed seamlessly.

The leadership portion of the course truly got me thinking on what kind of a leader I am and what I should or could be.

Very informative, great delivery and interactive.
