Course for leaders helps development
A QUEEN’S award winning Malvern company is reaping the rewards of a link-up with the University of Worcester’s Business School.
A team of managers from Malvern Instruments has completed a leadership and management programme with the university.
The first delegates from the firm to successfully complete the programme gathered at the university’s city campus to receive their awards from Malvern Instruments’ managing director Paul Walker and Mark Richardson, head of the Business School.
Welcoming delegates and colleagues, Mr Richardson congratulated them on their success and overcoming the issues of balancing work pressure with time to study.
Eventually, more than 80 delegates will complete the programme with some elements delivered to Malvern Instruments managers in the USA.
Tim Maxfield, director of business development in the Business School, said: “We are delighted to have worked with Malvern Instruments. This type of programme emphasises the role the business school can play in the development of the local and regional economy. Up-skilling in the area of leadership and management is a high priority in the West Midlands and this programme presents a model of partnership that does a great deal to address this need.”
