TRAINING

We build the capacity of organisations to think in new ways and to realise the value of their contribution towards shaping, and flourishing in, a new sustainable economy.  We are passionate about training others in our tools and approaches as we believe this is an effective way to make a long-term impact.

We offer a wide range of training including:

  • Standard open training – open to individuals, or groups of up to 3 people from one organisation, held at our offices or an external venue.

  • Standard training for a single organisation – delivered on a date that suits you at our venue with the same content and format as the standard open programme.

  • In-house training – our standard courses brought to your teams within your organisation. Usually suitable for 6 or more people.

  • Executive briefings – for senior decision makers who want to learn more about a methodology or some other aspect of our work. Join one of the sessions at our offices or ask us to brief your executive team. An excellent precursor to training your teams or appointing us to work with you on a project.

  • Tailored in-house training – where we adapt content and emphasis of existing standard courses and briefings to suit particular objectives and requirements.

  • Bespoke training – workshops or courses developed specifically for your team or organisation, delivered at our offices or in-house. Suitable for 4 or more people.  

  • One-to-one training and advice – come to our offices or receive training and mentoring by email and telephone.
