Event description


What if you could learn how to effectively "lead AND manage" from one of New Zealand's most successful leaders of change and business improvement?

Now you can. This two day "Masterclass for Leaders" with Bruce Cotterill can best be described as a crash course in what you really need to know about leadership, management AND business.

Bruce "cuts through the clutter" to help you be an effective and engaging leader who is capable of embracing and driving change and business improvement. He only includes “the stuff that works”; and teaches leaders to focus on the simple things. Bruce's messages and tools are people centric, concise, simple, and communicated in a way that everyone can understand and use.

Most businesses are too busy complicating things and supporting that complication with bureaucracy. Simple stuff works because it’s easy to understand, and most importantly, easy to communicate”. Bruce Cotterill
