“The Dare to Lead programme is a core component of our strategy to develop our leaders across the organisation and build on our culture for ongoing development. We are very pleased with the results we have seen from the programme to date.”

"Over our three year collaboration with Impact, the Challenger and Play for Future Academy programmes have enabled employees to introduce PLAY to the next level of business development. From our start-up phase we have moved on to growing the business, but have kept our focus on development, innovation and efficiency of both the organisation and our costs. Thanks to the development of key competencies, our managers are able to build and implement strategy with great understanding."

Director, Communications
"I was quite sceptical about the merits of a programme like this so approached it with some reservations. However, right from the start I enjoyed the whole experience. It was challenging mentally, physically and emotionally and I found I was stretched in every direction. As a result, I learned a lot about myself but also about my colleagues, most of whom I was meeting for the first time."
