Bespoke training courses

We deliver interactive and engaging behaviour change skills training to organisations across the commercial, public and charity sectors. Recent clients include Safefood Ireland, the NSPCC, Pembrokeshire County Council, the Trygfonden Foundation, GirlGuiding UK and CFE Research.

We tailor the course materials to the needs of your organisation, where possible, and build time into the workshops to look at case studies of current behaviour change projects that attendees are involved in. Our courses are priced according to the number facilitators needed and the type of organisation (e.g. commercial, charity, public sector).
