This participative course enables delegates to review techniques and practices via a structured workshop atmosphere encouraging them to look at their current function and how they spend their time now.  Via group and syndicate exercises they can then make informed choices in how they could change the way they do things and guidance is given in improving their self-organisation and use of their time.
