“This is the best training program I have attended during my 25 years at UCSD! An excellent combination of practical and theoretical concepts. I learned a lot about leadership and honed the skills I already have while learning new things. This was a program I looked forward to coming to. Attending this program with my colleagues was amazing. Having this time together was a great team building experience.”
