The LEAD Wales programme has now closed.
LEAD Wales was designed to develop and enhance the leadership skills of owners of small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) located across Wales.
The programme was delivered by Swansea University with the support of Bangor University in North Wales, with backing from the Welsh Assembly Government and the European Social Fund (ESF).
It focused on two areas: the business itself and the personal development of the owner-manager. The aim was to give owner-managers - as well as managers of social enterprises - the resources and support they needed to fully harness the skills and energy of their staff, recognise and exploit opportunities for greater efficiency, and provide a sound platform for growth.
