Become a Commercially Aware Care Manager

2nd Course Now Open 

12 September 2017
Novotel, Broad Street, Birmingham

£130 + VAT


Join us for an intensive day course which will make you more confident about your knowledge and ability to make your care home more commercially successful.


The key to this content is that the bedrock of good care home care is compassion but this depends on the manager having the commercial knowledge to make the best possible of the resources on hand and the commercial opportunities which might exist.
