Are you needing some focused guidance?  

Maybe you prefer to learn by yourself or with a colleague....

Or, maybe you are time poor and can only spend a few hours learning new ways to work smarter and save time.

If any of these sound coaching is perfect for you!

Here’s What You'll Discover...

Expert Guidance

Guided learning, covering only what you need. Not only will your learning be specific to your needs, you will also learn tips, shortcuts and hacks to help you work smarter and save time!  And if you need assistance after the learning, all you need to do is email, and your coach will be right there to help.

Content that works!

The questions, feedback and suggestions from the many, many people who have completed our training workshops have helped hone our coaching so that it really works. We know just what you need to know to have you working confidently. No waffle and no 'technical-speak'. No wasting your time!

Support resources

You will be fully supported during and after your coaching session with comprehensive notes, cheat sheets and support files. These are super popular as a reference to offer additional support after your training.

Certificate of Attendance

Need proof of your Continuing Professional Development (CPD)? On completion of your coaching session, by request, we will send you a “Certificate of Attendance” confirming your participation and the duration of the training session.
