As a teacher, I teach a lot of delegates and only hear from a few of them into the future. After all - it's my job to teach them to 'fly' and my role to stay onthe ground and teach the next lot too.

It was very interesting ...

It's still a few days to go before the Olympics open, and I'm already reading of long traffic jams in London, various strikes planned at or near to the events by transport unions, and starting to hear wall to wall coverage of sport and sporting teams on the radio, and see it on the TV and in the paper ...

We're a training company and we'll train at YOUR place if you wish.

|3112||Public and private courses - subjects available for 2011|
Sorting through old manuals, it struck me just how many tailored courses we've given over the years. Tailoring a course to suit customer needs is really very easy for us - all of our courses are modular, and when we're running a single customer / private course, we prefer to top and tail the course ...

Wow - Google have done it again. I was surprised when I did an "image search" a few days ago to get a new, clean, effective display of images when I was looking for some stock art with which to illustrate a previous article. Impressed, yes, but of course I asked "what do we look like" and so I searched ...

Following on from yesterday's comments about long questionnaires, I've been writing a Mission Statement and Policy summaries.

I'm usually well scheduled a few days ahead, but as I look further ahead, things are less certain. Extra private courses are booked, "options weeks" resolve into a decision as to which course we'll be running, and occasionally courses are switched around / added to in order to meet delegate's requirements. ...

It feels like Tuesday - so I almost put out the bins before I left home for the fortnightly rubbish collection. But it isn't Tuesday - it's only Monday morning, and only just 8 O'Clock

It's ten years to the day since we bought "404" - our home in Melksham Spa.

Yesterday was a lovely Spring day ... with bright sunlight making the old clock on the side of the Church (a.k.a. the sundial) useful for once after a long and dull winter ;-). In the field and on the hillsides, white horses (of both animal and chalk varieties) added to the scene.

If I run a course for you, a big part of the cost is my time and travel; the incremental cost of each trainee added is relatively small.
