I always knew I wanted to be a team leader, but it wasn’t until I studied with BOLC that I realised just how much it meant to me. The course was just plain excellent and really helped me climb higher than I otherwise would have.
The course I took turned out to be just the thing to help me secure a promotion. I’m still with the same company, but now I actually look forward to going to work every day, rather than dreading Monday mornings!” – Francis Newman,
