Our MD, Jackie Denyer, is a recent graduate and shares her thoughts on successfully completing it:

Absolutely delighted to have completed the Cohort 14 10ksb programme with Goldman Sachs and Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford. Along with 62 other potential high growth businesses, the journey we have been on over the last 4 months has been amazing. Pretty intensive at times, it has given me the opportunity to look at the growth opportunities for Professional Training Solutions, and I am so excited about what the future holds for us. Meeting so many dynamic innovative leaders with a fantastic vision for their businesses has been so inspiring. I definitely will be taking forward the social value agenda for PTS. Any entrepreneurs out there – I would recommend signing up for the programme. It may be life changing!
