“The IDG Business Simulation, designed specifically for our business, delivers an exceptional delegate experience. Highly engaging, very relevant and expertly delivered. The networking and team building opportunities provided by the simulation have also proved invaluable. We are looking forward to working with IDG again.”

Andy Braddel, CB&I

“Superbly facilitated... a fun, enjoyable but challenging and stimulating environment. Significantly contributed to success of our London Operations by enhancing overall business awareness whilst providing focused learning on planning/ decision making/ risk assessment and commercial performance. I would have no hesitation in recommending IDG to other businesses looking to drive project and organisational success.”

Barry Hawley, CB&I

“The inspirational environmen set the tone for a challenging and thought-provoking two days. Each member of the team went away with some firm ideas of how to improve their performance. We asked our facilitator to come back and do some work with the wider team, which also had a great impact.”

Richard Rowney, Liverpool Victoria

"South Africa team were amazing! The passion, energy, inspiration and presence showed up! Truly delighted!”

Donna Adams, Barclays

“The Achieving Your Potential programme at Sandhurst was a great success. The opportunity for students to put theory into practice, experiment with different leadership behaviours and receive feedback from the highly experienced coaches and professional development experts from IDG will prove to be invaluable to produce highly effective business leaders.”
