“This year has been challenging for many and Team AO have been superb in rising to the challenges presented. A particular highlight has been our cost-effective solution to scaling delivery of our career conversations programmes. Our certification programme which is approved by the Institute of Leadership and Management involves a unique delivery model which takes participants from knowing nothing about career conversations to delivering an engaging learning experience. This solution enables organisations to train four times as many managers a year across different geographies and time zones. We are delighted to create that kind of impact.”
