We look to the knowledge and experience of the business community to help us with training and mentoring. RPC have been very easy to work with and have been most generous in coming up with such an extensive programme of specialized training that will be a massive boost to our community. It has certainly exceeded my expectations and I’m looking forward to working with the RPC team in rolling the workshops out over the next 12 months”
