What development do you need?

“Training” and “Development” can mean different things to different organisations and may also require a wide range of approaches.

Indeed some training issues aren’t really training issues at all.

You may have clear ideas about the type of programme, course, event or intervention you want. On the other hand, the brief you have been given may not be crystal clear so you want to talk to a partner who can help you. Either way we are here to help so we have broken down the “what we do” section into separate areas where we think we can add value to your project.

Our significant experience in working across sectors has enabled us to find the right sort of training & development that fully supports the clients we work with.

Across the great divide

Let’s be kinder to each other in 2017

There is a striking memorial in a park in Indianapolis.  It marks the spot where in April 1968, Robert Kennedy told a waiting crowd that Martin Luther King had been shot and killed, before speaking from the heart and his own personal experience, that violence is never an answer to our grievances.  His calming words quelled the rioting that other cities endured in the days after Dr King’s death and, arguably, saved some lives that night.
