Otago Executive Education provides quality executive education to organisations both in the commercial and public sectors. They have lots of nice things to say about their experiences with us and here are a few.
Jacqui Benter-Lynch, Organisational Development Advisor, Canterbury District Health Board
“The Executive Education team supports an integral component of CDHB’s Leadership Development. Of most value has been our ability to co-design a leadership programme to ensure the context is relevant to our staff and the learning is both applied and experiential. The team are unfailing in their efforts to create a rich learning environment with the residential aspect of the programme an integral component of this.”
Colin Russell, Assistant Area Commander, Manager Officer Development, Fire and Emergency New Zealand
“The development of our emerging and existing leaders in Fire and Emergency New Zealand is where we as an organisation, place a lot of emphasis on quality. Executive Education has been an excellent partner in the delivery of a product that is adaptive to our changing needs, and highly effective in addressing the individual needs of our developing leaders. The programme has the ability to ignite a spark in our people, giving them a deeper understanding of themselves as leaders, with inspirational debriefing of tools such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. The feedback we have had from the students that have completed this programme has been overwhelmingly positive.”
John Auty and Jenn Corbitt, the Science, Mathematics and Technology Teacher Fellowship Scheme, Royal Society of New Zealand
"Executive Education has provided high quality leadership development for Teacher Fellows since 2009. Communication with staff is always efficient and conducted in a very professional and timely fashion. Courses are very well planned with both staff and tutors taking great care to ensure courses are tailored to participants’ needs. This flexible approach to adapting programmes and offering solutions and suggestions is one of the key reasons for our continuing relationship with Executive Education. Another reason is the very high standard of course delivery with ‘smart staffing’ in terms of the varying styles, credibility and strengths of tutors. For many participants, this course is both personally and professionally ‘life changing’."
Chris Jansen, Senior Consultant, Leadership Lab Ltd
"I have run several executive courses for the University of Otago which are managed by Greer. I have been impressed by Greer's high degree of professional organisation, responsiveness to feedback, and keenness to innovate. I am sure that a significant portion of the growth of these programmes is attributed to these skills above combined with Greer's high degree of relational connection with clients and partners."
Catherine Woodward, Organisational Development Advisor, NZ Airways Limited
"I just wanted to pass on my sincerest thanks for what was a fantastic Inspiring Leaders program last week. Otago University did us very proud and have ensured that this module is one of the showcase features of our new development framework.
The feedback so far has been exceptional, from long standing employees rating Inspiring Leaders as the best program they have ever experienced, to new leaders feeling well equipped with the practical advice provided.
The conversations and energy participants are sharing about their experience is wonderful and all thanks to you for providing them with such a positive learning experience."
