Do you have 29 months? Recent studies have shown that’s how long it can take to prepare a promising mid-level manager for senior management positions.

But do you have two days? That’s how long the PTC Academy takes to provide middle managers with insight on the skills and challenges routinely faced by C-suite executives in the global telecom business.

Allow your future leaders the chance to explore what skills they possess and what experience they need to develop in leading, managing change, and transitioning to senior leadership roles at PTC Academy Thailand: Navigating Change. The intensive two-day course will be held 20-21 September 2018 in Bangkok, at the facilities of Loxley Public Co., Ltd. Registration is limited to the first 30 students.

“I’m quite sure that my boss will accept what I’m going to report to them about this program. Then, for the next conference he should agree when I request to send my colleagues to attend.”

“It has given me confidence, in fact, knowing that when I go back to my organization, I bring with me new insights that will most likely help us with our long-term objectives.”

“I’ve learned a lot about the telecom industry and its current state and challenges. This is ‘the’ sort of event that I would recommend to others and attend the next one in the region.”
