We’re a multi-award winning team of management trainers in Derby
We provide local management training for Derby businesses
Ay up me duck!
We’ve been around as a company since 2011, with our founders having been based in Derby for nearly 30 years. We’ve seen the amazing changes that the city has undergone since then, and are proud to be part of its future.
So, we’re truly local. With a real office that you can actually visit in person. Not a ‘virtual office’. Not a distant call-centre in some far-away place. Not just a website, a collection of downloadable courses, or an anonymous voice on the phone. We’re actual people who’d really like to properly get to know you and your business, so we can fully understand exactly what you’re trying achieve and how we might best help you with that.
Which means we’re readily available for a face-to-face chat. And since we have our own private meeting rooms, we can easily discuss the types of confidential or sensitive issues that might not be possible within a shared workspace or at your normal place of business.
So, you’re welcome to pop in if you’re passing. Or we’re equally happy to come over to your place. Or even meet online. Whatever works best for you.
We’re Derby’s leading HR consultancy and management training provider
We’ve already grown from a single-person business operating from home, to a 5-star rated multi-award winning company with offices and a whole team of HR consultants, trainers, and employment law experts. From our origins in HR support and consultancy we’ve diversified into HR, management, and wellbeing training, and are currently developing additional sister brands so that we can help you with a whole package of people-related support.
We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, and in particular, the reputation we’ve established within the local small business community. We offer you the stability of an established company, the credibility of one with a history of local clients, and the capability of one that’s grown beyond the one-person stage. You can be fully confident that we’re able to deliver what we promise, and can trust that we’ll reliably be there in the future when you need help.
But don’t take our word for it.
Just ask other Derby businesses what they think about our management training.
We're a long-standing member of the Derby small business community
We're an active and well-respected part of the Derby business community, so if you're based locally, you probably already know someone who knows us. We also undertake a number of worthwhile social projects within the local community. So go ahead, ask people what we're like. We're members of both Marketing Derby and the East Midlands Chamber, and we're regulars at many local networking events. So, if you are too, come and say hello next time you're there, and see what we're like for yourself.
Not a Derby business but need management training?
Not based in Derby? No problem!
Seeing as we're located pretty much bang in the middle of the country, it's easy for us to get to most places. We've delivered management training courses in London, Bristol, and Birmingham. We've previously been all the way up to Glasgow. In fact, we've even taken our management training as far afield as Egypt.
We're equally happy to deliver our management training at our site in Derby, your site, or an off-site training venue. Or indeed, at any other location that you'd prefer.
And as a result of Covid, we now also offer the option of online delivery for all our management training, which provides a flexible and time-efficient alternative solution for busy businesses, wherever they may be.
We can help you with management training in Derby!
Already know what you want? Great, let's get to it!
Not sure exactly what you need? No problem!
Our friendly and down-to-earth management training experts will point you in the right direction. We'd love to have an informal chat to find out more about your business and so help you identify the areas most in need of attention.
We're not after a quick sale, we're all about building long-term relationships. In fact, we don't even employ any sales people. Which means that right from the start you'll be talking directly to someone who can actually help you!
We're ready and waiting, so just get in touch!
