Our Story

Since 2017, we’ve been hard at work putting a modern twist on developing leaders, managers and teams. Our roots are delivering development programmes for businesses. We’ve been lucky enough to work across many sectors including premium brands, construction and healthcare.

The pandemic gave us the opportunity to develop our distance learning courses and CMI qualifications, helping individuals to lead and manage through complex and uncertain times. Fast forward to 2022, we’ve grown our team to diversify our in-house talents making us even more responsive to customer needs.
