In 2020, the Inaugural Class of Bradbury's Leadership Development Program completed their coursework. In March and April of 2021, two additional groups celebrated their graduation.
Through the program, the classes strengthened the participants' knowledge of leadership principles that are central to the Bradbury Group's Vision, Mission and Values & Beliefs.

Within our third group, we were able to include participants from Hayes International in Rotorua, New Zealand. During the pandemic, the increased use of virtual meetings made it simple to see how easy it would be to include employees from our Group companies. Even with the different time zones, we were able to arrange for everyone to feel like they were in the same meeting room. Josh Beck, Hayes Technical Sales Leader based in St. Louis, MO was also able to join (not pictured).

Congratulations to these teams! We're excited to continue to extend our reach of leadership teachings to even more Group Companies with the next classes.
