Facilitation – Training – Team Coaching – Lecturing
Working with groups of people in settings such as lecturing, training, facilitation and team coaching, creates a particularly rich opportunity for knowledge exchange and learning. It provides the possibility to interact with more than one person at a time and more importantly, to surface the existing knowledge in the room, which can be shared and enriched by all and for all participants. A highly rewarding learning and development opportunity which also leverages the economy of scale, for time, numbers and cost. Combined with one-to-one tailored support, it makes a perfect solution to optimise and develop organisations, leaders and human talent, for success.

Working with one person or a small group at a time is very rewarding!
But is also limits the number to – in my case – only a few thousand people.
Wishing for the knowledge exchange to travel faster and wider I write books!
There are no financial gains in writing (for every book sold I may get £1.00 if lucky!)
The gratification is in the thought that I may help others to avoid mistakes or accelerate their path to success by suggesting potential answers, solutions or options that they may consider.
This is why I recommend my books which I have carefully written with the readers in mind by offering thoughts that can be practically tested and use in real settings.
