The Leadership for Growth programme is designed to develop the capabilities of aspiring managers and leaders within scale-up potential SMEs, across Liverpool City Region.

The programme aims to enable leadership and management teams to
improve productivity, resilience and business performance.

  • Become action-centred leaders to lead change relating to people, technology, markets or products
