Name: Chris Buckley

Company: CDS Group

Course: Advanced Management and Leadership Programme

Chris is a director at CDS Group, a growing family-owned engineering business based in Stoke.

The group designs and manufactures a range of Advanced Thermal Processing Systems for clients across the UK and overseas.

CDS is planning its next phase of growth, and Chris felt our advanced management training would help him to keep pace with the requirements for creating and running successful teams to ensure that they understand the company’s direction and vision.

Chris’s thoughts

The course content matched my requirements, including the PG Cert option, and the tutors were professional, knowledgeable and friendly.

I have taken away from this course a greater understanding of the personal drive and motivation of each team member and now have a toolkit of things I can apply in the business to allow greater clarity of communication between colleagues.

Applying the learning

I now have the task of creating in-house training sessions to cascade the course content to team members.

The aim is to give team members the tools to recognise the best way to assemble functional teams through a better understanding of their colleagues’ personality types and motivations.


I had a great experience with the advanced management training, and have no issue in recommending INPD as a first-rate training provider.

The whole process, from the administration to the quality of the tutors, was spot-on. No complaints or criticisms from me!
