Our Bespoke, Tailored and Customised Training Solutions

• The courses and workshops are designed to meet the specific needs of the client, for example, “How to manage our contracts” or “How to improve our supply chain”

• The course content is developed in cooperation with the client, to ensure total relevance

• They represent excellent value for money

• They are less disruptive to normal business operations, as the courses and workshops are delivered on site, at times to suit the client

• They are an ideal vehicle for communicating critical organisational messages, for example compliance, HSE and legislation

Our Relationship Strategy

Our relationship with all our clients has always been based upon the concept of partnership; so that we can work together to provide consultancy and training which is the most appropriate and beneficial for both the organisation and the staff.

Our Resources

Programmes are resourced by a network of highly qualified experienced associate consultants. Some are well-known authors in their field, some are examiners for CIPS and many have undertaken research at universities and colleges. Others have years of practical experience working in contract management and procurement functions and at the leading edge of the supply chain. Our emphasis is on providing a clear and measurable added value to your business.
