Learnlight worked closely with the Head of Learning, Recruitment and Organizational Development at Marks & Spencer to develop an extensive understanding of the organization’s international strategy and the expectations of their top 100 managers.

Using this knowledge, Learnlight designed a one day program – “Lead to Succeed: Leading the Future in a Global Marketplace”, which forms part of an ongoing suite of development modules for senior level Marks & Spencer employees.

Learnlight’s program was preceded by a session focusing on the importance of international development for the business.

This session, delivered by a leading business school, was positioned to ensure maximum relevance and engagement on Learnlight’s “Leading the Future in a Global Marketplace”.
