Drawing upon the experience of senior colleagues and a range of internal and external contributors the programme will consider issues around leadership: how to recruit, manage and motivate a research team to effectively deliver research projects; decision making: how to balance competing demands, deal with difficult situations and identify the best options available; and personal advancement: publication profile, funding opportunities and career development.
