The team at Boundaries Edge, a company with staff from backgrounds in the British Intelligence Services, business psychology and Fortune 500 companies have very kindly teamed up with ourselves to offer a free half day business course for mid-senior level managers/partners on the aspects vital for ensuring your business has the Competitive Edge. As they will explain, the ability to gain, retain and persuade secret agents across the world is fundamentally the same as operating within the corporate world, albeit that it is not always a matter of life and death... well not all of the time.

During the event you will learn how to:

* Learn how to create favourable and lasting first impressions

* Build long-term relationships more effectively than our competition 

* Ensure a high rate of target to client conversion

* Use cutting edge techniques to persuade clients

* Build personal confidence for networking events

Comments from previous participants:

Great taster course and felt it was interesting and beneficial using life and death scenarios to emphasise behaviours.

Thanks you so much for the session last week. I went home buzzing for the first time in, I cannot remember how long.

Very enjoyable. Some good learnings and like the 'exercise' off-site.
