Training Courses

Most of these subjects are offered by other trainers but mine have two main differences.

1. I have worked for hundreds of companies so the content is practical not theoretical.

2. We solve real business issues on the spot, so that attendees can take practical action immediately.

Whole-day sessions and a suite of support materials including books, apps, podcasts, online tools, attendee comment and aftercare.

The minimum programme is four days at GBP3,000 per day, a total of GBP12,000.
