  • CRF Learning’s Aspiring HRD programme has been an invaluable part of my transition from functional HRD to Chief People Officer. It’s challenged me to think and operate more strategically, whilst giving me access to thought leaders and to new tools and frameworks. The opportunity to debate key issues with the other participants has also been highly valuable.

    Chief People Officer, TalkTalk

  • CRF Learning has provided me with the tools to be a more commercially-minded Business Partner. It has also taught me to be more aware of my business and the true importance of business performance – a must for all HR Business Partners!

    HR Business Partner, Mercedes-Benz

  • CRF Learning challenged our thinking at every opportunity. We had to really apply a different lens on our ‘HR stuff’ and question the real priorities in what we do.

    Daniel Burleigh

    HRBP, TalkTalk

  • CRF Learning’s Aspiring HRD Open Programme was exceptionally thought-provoking and really made me think about my organisation in a very different way.

    Marcus Millership

    HR Director, Rolls-Royce

  • A brilliant two days offered by CRF Learning – very thought provoking and challenging. There are things I’m still thinking about!

    Sam Baker

    UK Head of HR, Computacenter

  • I think the training CRF Learning offer is outstanding. We learnt what we should “DO” in our day-to-day roles in order to achieve our planned goals and priorities. The practical methodology enabled us to see how all the concepts appear in real life and how to deal with them.

    Senior Consultant Business HR, Avanade Inc.

  • CRF Learning’s Group HRD Open Programme is a thought-provoking programme that has helped me think about what being a CHRO really means. Listening to thought leaders in the world of HR and then sharing experiences and challenges within a small group broadened my thinking and enabled me to think about my career and my development in a completely different way. Nick's (Holley) enthusiasm is infectious and with all programmes, what you get out of it is directly related to the effort you put in!
