Santander & WMG announce places for SME senior managers in business leadership programme

An initiative to provide business leadership training for 20 senior managers from fast growing SMEs has been launched by WMG, at the University of Warwick, in partnership with Santander. The postgraduate award programme has received £40,000 of support from Santander, which will significantly reduce the cost of the programme that will give senior SME managers the opportunity to boost their ability to lead and embed innovation in their organisations. The scheme was launched at WMG at an event attended by a number of leading SMEs in the region as well as senior figures from Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, the EEF and Tata Motors. Dr Mark Swift, Head of SME Programmes at WMG said: The new programme blends WMG's longstanding experience of delivering executive education and cutting edge research with a suite of additional support from Santander's SME Breakthrough Scheme, networking opportunities and innovative product and service technology. John Williams, Head of Santander's Breakthrough Programme said: “We are delighted to support this programme, which will offer 20 individuals from growing SMEs a fantastic opportunity to transform the way they run their businesses. Santander is committed to helping UK businesses prosper and our unique Breakthrough programme helps fast-growth businesses fulfil their potential through a programme of capital and support”.
