Autonomy – defn “freedom of self-determination, independence”

Because our client is an owner-managed agency it’s independent in spirit – the directors deliver bespoke training, they want you to bring fresh thinking as to how the agency can evolve for the good of its clients and its staff.

So here you’re encouraged to speak up.
