Zuellig Pharma – SMU Advanced Management Programme (Custom Corporate Programme)

Zuellig Pharma - SMU’s Advanced Management Programme aims to further develop the skills and competencies of its current and future leaders.  

"The EXCEL Leadership programme structure was very well defined and provided a huge learning curve. The Hogan assessment was very useful to me as it revealed some characteristics of myself that everybody else saw in me, which I didn’t. During the personal coaching session, I was given many insights on where to improve and how to lead my team in my current organisation based on my Hogan assessment. As a leader, it is very important to continuously know yourself and where you stand with your strengths and weaknesses before going forward with an action plan."

"The globally diverse nature and the calibre of the rest of the women in the Women and Leadership programme was very inspiring and very humbling where we meet women who are very successful in their careers but are also facing similar challenges that needs to be addressed. My favourite part has been the balance of information which the programme offers and it has helped to increase my internal self-awareness combining with the new external tools that we have learnt to personally develop ourselves better."
