"The TRP program is an excellent opportunity to learn new effective techniques that facilitate change. It challenges you to think and do things differently, ask the right questions and feel excited about problems. Everything I learn in the program, I can immediately apply to my work. Also, the networking opportunities and small class sizes allow me to practise new skills in a safe environment."
