We are a global organisation

but we believe that our change programmes cannot be packed-up and delivered via e-learning

We are a global organisation

Although we started in London, we quickly realised that our global clients wanted to achieve a uniformity of quality and process in all of their territories. We decided to use licensing as our method of achieving this so that we could scale quickly and maintain the highest quality across every region. We already have a licensed distributor in North America and should have Australasia, Mainland Europe and Asia-Pacific onboard shortly. If you would like to talk to us about becoming a licensed distributor please read on…here

Why just social media?

Because we passionately believe that social media has the power to change the world.

In fact, it has already changed it!

A truly staggering 52% of the world’s population uses social media regularly. This means that the old rationale of “my customers aren’t on social media” simply isn’t true any more. And even if the person you are trying to sell to isn’t a social media user…there’s a very high chance that the people who influence their decisions are.

We all know that our own default behaviour to discover things or to validate the things that we have been told is to go online. These days much of the content is created in and distributed through social media. You must be part of the conversation in 2018.
