What is the most famous book, that is hardly ever read? I often ask my delegates during training sessions, “Who has heard of the book, How to Win Friends and Influence People.” Not surprising almost every hand goes up in the room, and why not it is a very famous...
I don’t know about you but I love the television programme “The Island.” You know the one; Bear Grylls dumps a dozen or so volunteers onto an island with little more than a few essentials whilst we sit back and watch the drama unfold. OK, so the cynics amongst us can...
“I CANNOT FAIL” … were the words I said to the woman who was about to take me on a one-year journey to qualify to become a professional trainer (CIPD). Why did I say that? Was it because I wanted to be the best? Actually no. The reason I said it was because I was...

We all know how to motivate and reward staff, don’t we? Give them something to aim for and punish them if they don’t perform. Also known as the Carrot and Stick approach. The reality is that we all have deep seated motivations which drives our behaviour. These...

Meet the team
Born in London, 1963, Don has always been driven by creativity. When he is not training or coaching people you will find him in his studio painting, tinkering with his old Yamaha motorbike, or cooking for the masses at some kind of village charity event. You often hear him say, “Oh, why did I agree to do this?”. A little known fact about Don is his passion for wildlife and especially British native birds. You can often find him at the bottom of his garden doing an impression of Dr Doolittle conversing with the birds, that’s a story for another day.
Best ever holiday: Backpacking in India

Also born in London, you never give a ladies age away! Supremely organised Nicky literally runs the show. She is the one who has the answers to everything like, “Where’s the stapler?” We have watch her; she has a tendency to drift off searching for holidays on-line. Maybe it’s because we don’t let her have any. She is the go-to person for the team, our clients and keeps our unruly staff in order. She loves putting her feet up on the weekend, with a cup of coffee and is often heard saying, “Don, why did you agree to do this?”
Best ever holiday: The blissful Maldives
Favourite food: Thai & anything with Chocolate
Favourite song: Summer of 69 – Bryan Adams
Born in Harlow – although we don’t hold that against him – in 1972. When he is not being our IT and marketing guru Daniel, is often found restoring his old VW Crossover Bay window Campervan, or at the riding stables with his family. He loves the smell of spray paint and grease and often heard saying, “Pass the spanner.” Daniel loves his job and the team he works with, but most of all, he loves sitting in the local Turkish restaurant with Don. Don loves this activity too; clearly, a match made in heaven.
