A message from Course Leader, James Kavanagh
This course always attracts an interesting mix of delegates from different sectors and, as competition is introduced to new sectors, such as health and water, we reflect this in the content of the course. Highlights for this year include more content on antitrust damages and new case studies. Forming a major part of the course, the case studies are run as mock hearings before a panel representing the competition authority. Unlike other training courses, this one is not a matter of sitting and listening to lectures—it is fully interactive and places the tools of competition economics directly into your hands.
