Henley FIRE (Full Immersion Reality Education) creates short, intense immersive learning experiences for corporate groups in experiential learning environments designed to disrupt their thinking, so that they find new, innovative and imaginative ways of working and dealing with complex business problems.
“I learnt in two years at Henley what would have taken 10 years in a business environment.”
“My life was on a cross-roads, I felt like I was too young not to be informed. I needed a skills upgrade. The Henley MBA was my must have”.
The PGDip was the best preparation for the MBA that I could have had. The MBA is a lot of work, it needs consistency, if you’re not consistent the work piles up and you can fall behind and I was determined not to.
The Henley MBA has given me a fresh perspective to look at the music business in a way that I never have before. I’m excited to connect with the Henley MBA network, an incredible resource that I haven’t even tapped into yet.
The Henley MBA was fantastic because it connected so many broad business themes. Henley has given me a new toolbox filled with tools I never had before. The frameworks and models are practical and I regularly apply them in everyday situations.
My biggest take-away from the Henley experience has been the phenomenal personal growth. I have learnt to tackle my personal demons, rise to the challenge of new growth opportunities and embrace my hero’s journey. I have also learnt to tackle business challenges with a systems thinking lens and better understand how all the building blocks work together and in turn, impact each other.
“The exposure of the international Lecturers brought a great deal with regards to international perspective. I am now a well-rounded individual whereby I can have meaningful business conversations both work and in my personal life.”
“I learnt to view everything through a systems thinking framework. It’s been the enabler of my career and personal advancement, where others’ focus was narrow, my offering included options seemingly inaccessible but actually were not. The key, I have found, is to not be afraid to show alternatives, even if it sounds crazy or too simple.”
“Henley made me realise that we have to reach out to one another, we have to create the good story to tell as business, but most of all we have to move with the times.”
