Ask Better Questions, Build Better Relationships
“Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.” ― Voltaire
Questioning is a critical communication skill that most of us pay little attention to. It is the linchpin to building stronger relationships, both professionally and personally. Learn to understand others before making inaccurate judgments that end up making things worse rather than better.
Business Presentation Skills Made Easy
“There are two types of speakers, those that are nervous and those that are liars.” - Mark Twain
Talent and skill is not enough. If you are not able to clearly and confidently present your key messages to others, you are highly likely to lose out to someone who can.
Time Management Success - Transform Your Productivity Easily
"The only one who got everything done by Friday was Robinson
Crusoe" - Unknown
Time is one of the few resources that we all have an equal amount of. Yet we achieve vastly different levels of success with that time. Highly successful people are excellent at developing a clear focus on what success means for them, and working to strong priorities to ensure they waste no effort or time delivering that success.
Recruitment Interviewing Made Easy
"Too many people under value what they are and over value what they are not" - Unknown
The recruitment & selection interview is by far the most widely used method of identifying new talent to fill a job vacancy. Recruiting a new member to your team or business is an important decision. Get it right and the benefits are enormous. Get it wrong and you live with the consequences for a long time.
How to Give & Receive High Impact Feedback
"We all need people who will give us feedback. That's how we improve." - Bill Gates
Our ability to give and receive feedback is a vital part component of everyday life. Whether that is our professional working life or our personal and domestic life. We are constantly exposed to feedback, whether we want to be or not. It is in some senses unavoidable. However, the reality is that much of the time the feedback that we give and receive is of very low quality, and as a result it has little or no impact, unless we are very lucky.
Objective Setting for New Managers
"This one step – choosing a goal and sticking to it – changes everything.” - Scott Reed
Learn how to quickly create focus and clarity for your team. Boost team performance with quality performance objectives. The ability to use performance objectives to provide focus and clarity for your team is one of the foundation skills of effective management.

Hello there - thanks for looking at my courses.
You're probably wondering why on earth you should work with me through my online courses, or possibly more directly.
Well, I have been a learning and development professional for almost 30 years now. In that time I have worked with a very wide range of organisations and people from all walks of life, and many different countries and backgrounds.
My focus is on helping people learn skills, techniques and behaviours that will help them in their everyday lives. That might be in business and their professional lives or more personal development outside of work. What matters to me is that the learning is not simply just theoretical, but practically applicable. Knowing stuff is good, but we grow when we learn to actually apply that knowledge. That's where we add value.
In support of this approach, I have a lot of experience to back it up. I have for 20 years held senior management positions in both public and private sector organisations. I have also run my own consultancy and people development businesses for almost 18 years working with many global brands in a variety of business sectors, family businesses, business start ups and individuals seeking to develop their own skills and abilities.
With all this experience and expertise I have come to realize that a great deal of successful business and people management comes down to effective communication. In theory this appears straight forward, yet the reality is frequently much more challenging. This challenge is summed up by one of my favorite quotes;
'the single biggest problem with communication is the illusion it is taking place'
George Bernard Shaw.
When I'm asked about what I do, I have been known to describe myself as an interpreter, and when asked about which languages I say English to English. It often raises a smile as people realize what I mean by that.
