Learning & Development


Since 1994 we have been running in-house courses for thousands of people.
Courses can be adapted from a half-day to two-days in length and some topics can be presented as short ‘spotlight’ sessions.
We offer a range of titles and topics  (see below) and we also design and tailor-make courses to suit specific requirements. Just ask!

I have worked with Joe for many years, delivering management development programmes, customised one-off events and coaching. He has a strong foundation in academic study and has written several books. However, it is his very engaging (and often entertaining) style of delivery that workshop delegates particularly enjoy.

Joe’s teaching style is very suited to my learning. He is incredibly curious about everything and therefore possesses a huge amount of knowledge that he uses to add extra interest to training. He also likes to hear anything that other people can contribute. His training is very relaxed but remains professional. Though there is flexibility, Joe remains in control.

Joe facilitates well, bringing his own anecdotes and unique dose of humour to bring the sessions to life. He also enables opportunities to work with different people and learn from their experiences, to ensure new knowledge is embedded and networks formed.
