Our philosophy is simple. We aim to provide you with the very best in training backed by the very best in service.


Our training is all about you - your requirements, your needs.
We offer you personalised programmes developed by us, customised to your exact needs. We use only our own materials. Where we can, we use only live examples drawn from your environment, your experience.

Our public programmes are true workshops - strictly limited numbers, individual attention and a high degree of participation and interaction.

We adopt a consultative approach to all of our training to ensure your needs are met.

Prior to every programme, we send you an objectives work sheet to complete and return to us. This helps us in our preparation for the programme to make sure the training is tailored to your specific needs.


Like our philosophy, our values are simple. They are:
  • that training is about you and your needs
  • that diversity and different learning styles should be recognised and valued
  • that the training process should be consultative and interactive
  • that no one should be made to do anything that they would be uncomfortable with
  • that the training environment should be supportive of the individual and their pace of learning.


Our programmes are highly practical and have been well received by participants from a wide variety of organisations. Follow this link to read some recent testimonials.


Our premises are located in Wellington's Central Business District at:

Level 2 - Suite 3
PSA House
11 Aurora Terrace
