About

We are a learning and development consultancy based in the North West and operating across the UK. 
Our philosophy

Better people + better ways of working = better results.

 

Everything that we do as a business should make your organisation, whether private, public or 3rd sector, more successful. After every single interaction with your business we want to leave it better. If we can't see how we can do that then we will tell you: we don't do training for the sake of it.

 

Learning should be fun

 

That doesn't mean that we don't take it seriously but that we want people to enjoy learning. Think about the best learning experiences of your life: we bet they were in some way enjoyable, whether through the people you were learning with or the activities that you learnt through. We spend lots of time working so we want to make it fun.

 

 

How? Our approach

We like to keep it simple. We will work in partnership with you to find the best solution for your organisation, following some easy steps:

 

  1. Understand what you're trying to achieve and define clear outcomes

  2. Design or select the most appropriate option

  3. Deliver what you need

  4. Help you to support and embed the learning

  5. Work with you to measure the effectiveness

 

Gareth Batterbee
Founder

Gareth has over 15 years' experience in helping people around the world to develop their skills across a range of private sector industries and public sector organisations, both as a facilitator and a coach. He qualified ACA with Deloitte so he brings a business focus to learning and development: he knows that whatever you spend, you need to be able to see a return in your organisation.

 

He has worked as an internal learning and development manager as well as delivering and designing training as a consultant, so he understands the internal challenges of L&D and the importance of managing all stakeholders. 

 

Gareth works with a number of trusted associates so as to ensure that you get the best possible fit (skills and personality) for your organisation.

We like to work with like minded people and organisations around the country. This means that we keep what we're doing nice and fresh, can share best practice and development, and make sure that we can help you even if that means not doing the work ourselves.
