The launch event delivered by Andy Johnson and Barrie Corless gave an informative overview of the course ahead and everyone enthusiastically took part in the evening especially the Change Management activity.

Mentors spent time with their group of mentees to discuss topics to be covered during the course and expectations.  Dates for Support and Challenge group meetings were identified and the evening finished with everyone feeling very positive and looking forward to the course ahead.

NLD Honorary Secretary & former Leadership Academy Graduate Tracy Edmundson commented; ‘I’m really pleased to have the opportunity to be one of the Mentors for NLD this year.  The Leadership Academy was a brilliant programme that I really benefitted from and I am looking forward to being able to mentor some fantastic leaders from throughout NLD.’

Many thanks to Derby RFC for the use of their club house and the excellent buffet.
