Feedback on the Development Programme
Previous participants commented on the excellent training and facilitation, its relevance to their work, how it motivated them and the unique value of working with other award-winning organisations facing similar challenges. These are some of the comments from our 2023 winners:
‘Such an incredible programme to be involved with – so much value to our organisation beyond the financial support.’
‘The programme was fabulous from start to end. We really valued the time and space to think properly and the quality of the development programme was outstanding.’
‘I felt a little intimidated by the idea of attending The King’s Fund, and expected to be out of place. The whole team delivered a high quality programme with warmth, humanity and humour that enabled all of us to lean into the learning and be vulnerable.’
‘I feel like I’ve experienced something very significant, with huge potential for the future, individually and organisationally.’
