Everything you need to know

Public course schedule

The performance of professional service deliverers - whether external or internal - doesn't just depend on technical expertise; it also depends on the ability to deliver that expertise effectively to clients. Over our many years of experience we have developed a comprehensive range of consultant training courses that are directed at developing people's skills and capability in doing this and we are now are an Approved Centre for the Institute of Consulting and Chartered Management Institute.

Shown below are some of the more popular courses that we run. The courses equipping consultants for their roles use our CONSULT sales or delivery processes as their backbone, while those designed to develop a consultant's personal performance focus detail on a specific area of skill needed by consultants. There are also intensive consultant training programmes, which concentrate a lot of input in a short time. All courses can be run internally (see BESPOKE TRAINING while the most popular topics are covered in our programme of PUBLIC CONSTULTANCY SKILLS COURSES.)

Clients often ask us to design and deliver courses to meet specific development needs for consultant teams; see our approach under professional consultant development
