Training staff members of professional firms

Training by training consultants who understand the rigours of professional practice

We have worked with thousands of people from all walks of life including many from the legal, accounting, engineering, quality and other professions.

Because we listen, and talk with people rather than at them, our general knowledge of professional organisations and professional practice is very high.

We have worked with both professional and support staff, from junior to quite senior levels. Before moving into training, Derek Stockley’s initial employment was with a firm of chartered accountants. The lessons learnt have stayed with him throughout his career.

We specialise in the soft skill areas of communication, leadership, management, negotiation, trainer development, facilitation, employee selection and time management.
