Here's what participants said about the programme:

The greatest gift this Programme has given me is the permission to speak to my values and the authority to stand on and lean into my values as my truth. I have many challenges in my daily life both professionally and personally but I stay mindful in my approach and learning as a result of the teaching through the Public Health Leadership Programme.

Thank you for providing such a valuable programme. It is the best professional development I have been involved with and so pertinent to my role within public health. 

I have found this course to be enlightening, inspiring and upskilling. The confidence I have gained has enabled me to step up and take a much bigger leadership role in public health, and provided me with an endorsement and vision to take into the future. Thank you so much for the opportunity to be part of this.
