Blue Sky Performance Improvement- Best Leadership Development Programme Award

Our story began one sunny day back in 1997 when two of our founding partners strongly believed there was a need in the market for creating a different approach to training and developing people. One, an accountant with a passion for creating learning solutions with real impact to deliver business results and the other, a perfectionist with a gift for understanding that’s it’s not enough to simply offer skills training without understanding how to create genuine behavioural change to make that training investment last.

So for the past 17 years we have continued to hone our craft to offer you the best of both worlds - deliver improved business results by creating training and learning solutions that focus on genuine behavioural change. 

Operating on a global scale, our rate of growth has been entirely driven by the hard work and energy of our team and we have over 30 industry awards on the mantelpiece to show for it.
