We welcome back Damian D'Cruz and Jane Huria as presenters.

"I feel the UFBA Leadership and Governance course was extremely beneficial and the information I have taken away from it can be used in everyday life, not just Fire Service related." Kerri Pring, Kirwee Volunteer Fire Brigade.
“The Leadership and Governance workshop is definitely beneficial to anyone wanting to develop or enhance their leadership skills. It provides skills that will assist in dealing with staff and the public we serve. I would recommend this to all Fire Service personnel.” Bradley Quinn, Glenbrook Industrial Fire Brigade
