Training and Events

Our workshops are designed with practitioners in mind - they include case studies and examples, and give you the opportunity to plan how to implement what you have learnt in your own organisation.

Bespoke training

We appreciate that sometimes it can be more valuable and cost-effective to host group training at your own organisation. We can tailor our materials for your organisation, taking into consideration your own unique situation. If you would like us to visit you to deliver bespoke training on any of our areas of expertise, please contact us with further details.

One-to-one training and coaching

You may need support or advice on a particular project or organisational issue. If you would like us to work with you on a one-to-one basis (in person or virtually) to provide training in one or more of our areas of expertise, please contact us to discuss this.

Other events

We are often invited to deliver presentations, seminars or workshops at other events such as conferences. If you would like us to speak at your event, please contact us.
