For over two decades I have provided tailored experiential training workshops on an in-house basis for clients or on open, public courses through commercial providers. Sometimes I am asked to help with training needs analysis before a learning and development programme is developed.

I provide courses for marketing and business development professionals through the Professional Marketing Forum where I have been lead trainer for 20 years having developed and delivered over 20 different courses. I regularly develop new courses to address emerging needs. I was also a part-time lecturer on professional qualifications for the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) for many years through two different colleges.

I frequently provide training for the professionals themselves – accountants, lawyers and surveyors. Public courses are available through MBL – and previously through CLT.

The range of topics for which I provide training is diverse, here are some examples. On my YouTube channel, I produce short, fun and free “explainer” videos on management, marketing, relationship management and psychology topics.

I usually write a short blog or longer article about the main themes arising in public courses and you can explore these using the search or tag cloud.

You might also like to look at the 2020 publication “Essential soft skills for lawyers”.
