“I thoroughly enjoyed the virtual Co-operatives and Mutuals course, which was a great mix of presentation, independent learning and group discussion with other CME leaders. The course covered all of the essentials of successful CME management, and Tim provided several case studies and useful tools to help us apply the concepts to our own organisations. I would gladly recommend this course to any executive or senior manager, new or experienced, who are looking to refresh their thinking and expand their knowledge of CME’s.”
