The on-demand format was great as it enabled me to complete the programme at my own pace irrespective of my tough schedule. The additional materials were very helpful. Thank you to the fantastic facilitators and admin. I am really glad I had the opportunity to be a part of this cohort. Worth every minute spent on the programme.

The programme provided the right mix of asynchronous self learning via the online platform and synchronous engagements through a mixture of masterclasses, workshops, Q&A sessions, networking events and showcases. I think spreading it over the period it was delivered was correct to allow busy cohort members to engage and complete in a timeframe that suited them.
