“My Owner Manager Programme group was amazing, and part of it was the huge commitment that we each made to each other to be there at every block. It was really humbling and encouraging. You really felt part of something. The things I’ve learned on the Programme are still definitely relevant. You don’t just leave that stuff behind and I find that it’s become a huge part of what we are.”
