Creating cost-effective, innovative and bespoke solutions

“She has provided invaluable insights about how we work with others, and has helped me to develop and change strategy based on her feedback, and helped me and my team exploit our strengths”

Christine Davy | Headteacher, Brooklands Primary School – Ofsted “Outstanding” rated school

Alison Cole | Psychologist, Business Skills Training

Every organisation and individual is unique and their training needs are different at different stages of their development.

I have been designing and delivering training for organisations, teams and individuals for over 25 years. During this time, I have helped clients to make a lasting impact on their performance. Working with them to identify their specific training needs, I have developed tailored programmes designed to fit and maximise their return on investment.

My bespoke approach identifies your training needs, ensuring that your time and money are spent effectively.

I design training content that is tailored to fit you, or your staff, and is delivered in a way that is responsive to your individual style or that of your organisation.  This ensures that training is relatable and relevant and creates positive and pertinent change in the most cost-effective way.

Individual Training

  • See my 90-minute Development Programmes which combine the Impact of personal coaching with targeted training (Click to View in new tab)
  • I can also create a bespoke training programme if that is a more useful option for you.

Group Training (Optimum groups of 4-8)

(Organisations with teams of more than 8 people can discuss options with me via a discovery session).

  • If you belong to an organisation that would like training for a group of your employees, I can provide bespoke training for your training needs.
  • Similarly, if you and some of your colleagues or friends wish to train together, I can set up a bespoke programme for you. This will offer you savings compared to individual training.
  • The costs will depend on complexity.
  • There will be additional charges for the use of accredited commercial tools such as psychometric tests.
  • The sessions may be possible remotely via Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet or Skype.
  • Onsite sessions will include additional costs for travel. I can arrange a training venue.
  • If you have a venue of your own, additional travel costs will accrue.
