The Solution

Ashridge provided rolling access to two of the most popular open programs – the Senior Executive Program and the Advanced Management Program. In addition to this, a wider selection of BMI employees were provided access to the Virtual Ashridge portal.

‘Connecting Leaders’ events, with risk sessions facilitated by a professional poker player were designed to help people look at things from a different angle.

The Impact

“The programs have taken our leaders to the next level. Ashridge has helped our people to meet the challenge of progressing to executive directors, meaning people are promoted internally, saving on recruitment costs.

Hult Ashridge is an integral part of BMI Healthcare’s broader leadership development strategy, and people coming up through the pipeline aspire to join the program.”
