Arm yourself with the 10 vital business skills you need to make sound business decisions.

How you do business is changing fast. Competition is fiercer than ever. How well you can grasp and handle data, reduce risks, and manage people, processes, and new technology is being tested daily. Prepare yourself to innovate, strategize, and lead with success.

In this one-of-a-kind program, you’ll explore these vital skills and behaviors, guided by leading business experts, and practice applying them in an intensive business simulation. Each new skill you explore will inform and support every other skill. Working alongside peers from a variety of industries, you’ll also develop the leadership skills you need to apply these behaviours on the job. This hands-on, 5-day immersive course, filled with case studies, exercises, and activities, offers you the unique opportunity to experience what every business must do—cut costs, increase revenue, and mitigate risks—with a holistic, game-changing approach that can have a lasting positive impact not only on your career, but your entire future.

Course Reviews

  • Nitika Chunilall, Mental Health Commission of Canada Feb 12, 2019

    The course was definitely relevant to my work and I appreciated knowledge being imparted on a need-to-know basis rather than going into historical references. Both instructors were phenomenal. This is a hard combination to find. Thank you for a wonderful week.

  • Lace Laframboise, Thornloe Cheese Inc. Feb 11, 2019

    Both Jason and Sherry explained concepts in an easy-to-follow manner. The material progressed logically. Skills were taught in a way that can be easily transferred to the workplace.The whole week was fantastic! The course was in-depth and fast paced but both facilitators took time to answer questions and make sure everyone was understanding as the course progressed. The facility is professional and well set-up for learning. All staff are friendly and helpful.

    Considering the time and amount of topics to cover, I did expect some additional preparation or homework and that could make the week more valuable, with some small "real-life" business cases. Still Very good impression on the course. Both Jason and Sherry did a great work, to keep the group engaged, sharing info at a good pace, and bringing some own experience examples. Find that the overall course was aligned with my expectations. The high-level concepts but also the depth of discussions around the financial metrics and strategic approach provided additional tools that I'm able to apply back in the business and with my direct managment team.

    I really enjoyed Debora's style of facilitating the course. Jeff's style is a bit different. Half of the time I feel that we were discussing non-course related stuff. I wish we did more exercises on reading balance sheet and cash flow (instead of just using one company Johnson & Johnson) Some of the course content is outdated, especially in the Marketing area.
