Even in his mid-forties, at the height of his career, CEO of Greater Manchester Police Federation, Karl Thurogood, is still learning – because if over 20 years’ experience has taught him anything, it’s that to be a great manager, you have to be constantly evolving to keep on top of things.
Between using CMI resources to bring the latest insights and evidence to the table at work, and the gravitas and influence Chartered Manager status affords him, Karl’s perpetual thirst for ways to be better at what he does is effectively satisfied.
"When you can come with the facts, the data and the research to back up your argument, it generally sways things … [Chartered Manager] helps me to stand out from the crowd … It’s very influential."
