College leading from the front


A Cornwall Business Club conference hosted by Truro and Penwith College Business last week focused on the importance of quality training in leadership and management.

Over 70 local business representatives attended the event, which began with an introduction from Martin Tucker, director of operations at Penwith College, who reported on the approach to leadership and management practised throughout Truro and Penwith College.

Guest speakers, Tamsin Thomas from Cornwall Hospice Care and Alison Fry from Trescobeas Surgery in Falmouth, presented their experiences of training with the college and the tangible benefits delivered to their businesses as a result, as well as the impact on their personal careers.

A variety of leadership and management courses were delivered to delegates showcasing the range of training programmes available, including Motivational Management, Leadership and Managing Risk during Growth and Change.

Tamsyn Harris, head of Truro and Penwith College Business, said: “Feedback from the delegates who attended the Cornwall Business Club Conference has been outstanding!

“It’s reassuring to hear that our high quality delivery and solutions based provision is adding real value within the local business community.  We continue to work with thousands of local businesses across Cornwall helping them to develop solutions-based programmes that really enhance their business and we’re very much looking forward to releasing dates for our next Cornwall Business Club Conference.”
