What we doWe offer top-quality training, in a wide range of subjects, at a sensible price. All our programmes are delivered by independent subject specialists who also have outstanding training skills, in the following main areas:
- Commercial training
- Customer service training
- Director / corporate governance training
- Facilities management training
- Finance training
- Health and safety training
- HR and employment law training
- Leadership, management and personal effectiveness training
- Learning and development training
- Project management training
- Retail, hospitality and leisure training
- Sales training
We have rigorous standards and refuse to work with anyone but the best trainers. Our extensive network means that we have a choice of trainers to offer for all of these subjects, partly to ensure the best ‘fit’ between trainer and client and partly so that we can resource large-scale ‘roll-out’ programmes when required. We use a core team of around 40 associate trainers, with about another 150 specialists available on an ad hoc basis.
Where we do it
Generally, we send the trainer to train up a group of people on your own premises. We work across the UK and internationally.
