LCT is a wonderful and lovely place to develop skills for managers from different backgrounds, disciplines and organisations. I’ve learned so much in just five days and I have met many people and built new contacts. Customer service has also been superb. Overall, it’s been a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend LCT.
