The Home of Sticky Learning ®

We are the soft skills training provider to leading UK Manufacturing and Retailing companies partnering with them to increase their sales and profits.

They choose us because of our money-back guarantee, our relevant experience, and that we make their learning stick.

The problem companies face is that they are investing money in training but are not seeing a measurable return on investment. Our 5-level evaluation provides a ‘Chain of Evidence‘ for each training course.

Our trainers have worked on both sides of the fence and understand the challenges of working in an environment that is constantly changing, has slim margins, and where people need to be their very best.

Our unique training method, Sticky Learning ®, ensures that your Learners are still using their new skill 5 months later and this is supported by our money-back guarantee.
