Understanding your needs

We appreciate the pressures you and your organisations are under to deliver results while making the best use of resources. That’s why we are keen to sit down with prospective customers to really look below the surface to find out what is really needed. So often “training” can be prescribed as an answer to business issues yet training in itself may not always be the answer.

You need someone who can challenge organisational thinking, to ask the BIG questions and support you in providing proposals for programmes that can really make a difference.

We really want to impress your stakeholders not just deliver some training courses. It’s about helping you with the big issues: performance, talent, leadership, team effectiveness, and staff engagement. All of them having an impact on the bottom line and the strategy of your organisation.

Our consultants are hugely experienced not just in delivery but in the whole L&D cycle of development.

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.


The memorial itself is an arresting work of art.  (more…)
