Group Work
We run  training programmes for a wide variety of different organisations

  • We've worked with large and small organisations in the public and private sectors

  • Programmes have run in the UK, Europe and all over the globe. ​

  • Our diverse client-base includes organisations in the financial services, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, technological, charitable and food sectors


Executive Coaching and Mentoring
We help executives on a 1:1 coaching/mentoring basis raise their awareness.

  • Coaching works well for senior executives where time is at a premium and they need to be able to talk about issues on a one to one basis - we also, however, coach and mentor at many different levels within an organisation.

Our Approach
We partner with clients to create programmes aligned to their culture.

  • We use many models across our programmes to support learning and may use similar models 

  • each programme is fully tailored to each client and will use the appropriate corporate language, together with relevant in-house examples, scenarios, department names etc. which attendees will recognise and understand immediately.

    • We will often include discussion case-studies in our programmes, designed in consultation with clients, to ensure that they reflect the unique culture of each client.

    • We encourage the use of action learning sets to help attendees to "help themselves" and to reinforce their learning when they return to the workplace.

    • We don't run standard, off-the-shelf programmes.
