We offer a range of training workshops at Begbroke Science Park just outside Oxford.


Subject areas

Style of training

Our approach is a blend of training and coaching in the workshop. In this way participants are gaining new ideas and then reviewing how they apply these back at work with the help of the trainer. Each person leaves with specific actions to implement and with our unique action planning tool, they have the best chance of implementing these.

Follow up

Each person receives an email reminding them of their actions from the training. 1 to 1 follow up coaching is also available at a separate cost.

Training consultants

We are all experienced trainers with practical experience of the subject areas we cover.


The next training date is 30 September, for Personality Awareness Training.
