Due to our partnership relationships with organisations in the private sector we are often requested to review organisational practices, processes and behaviours in light of needs to enhance efficiency, build strengths, refine practices and develop new insights and capabilities. Our training interventions within these organisations are often building on needs identified through consulting or our consulting is forming a symbiotic relationship with our training interventions. They are complementary to each other and through providing consulting and training we can provide a holistic response to clients. We have built a range of consultancy expertise in areas, some of which include; Corporate Planning, Team Facilitation, Performance Appraisals and PMDS.
