  • Who delivers your courses?
    Our trainers are our ‘shop window’ and so we take extreme care in their selection; both in terms of their subject matter expertise, their delivery style, and also their personality and ability to build rapport. In addition to their delivery experience, we also expect a trainer involved in Leadership or Management development to have held such a position in order for them to relate to their audience and also offer anecdotal evidence to achieve credibility from the audience who see them as having had the same issues as them. If you want to find out more about a particular trainer, just give us a call on 0845 481 1644 and we'll be happy to help.
