  • Utilise networking skills to foster professional links both inside and outside the University
  • Use effective decision-making tools to manage priorities

Session approach

This is a three-day interactive workshop which fosters learning within a practical environment. The course includes speakers and will introduce you to some tools and concepts to build your personal manager’s toolkit. There will be opportunities to discuss issues or problems you are encountering and to build a toolbox of strategies and resources to assist you in your role.
