We have assembled a core team of commercial training specialists who combine many years of practical experience with a passion and a talent for sharing their knowledge and expertise. Between them, they can deliver courses and workshops at any level across the entire spectrum of commercial, contracts and procurement topics and skills. The advertised commercial training programmes can all be tailored to meet your particular needs – some of them are even designed to be built around your own ‘live’ projects – but if you can’t see what you are looking for then we would be more than happy to develop a commercial training programme specially for you.
Looking for a virtual option? Most of our programmes can also be delivered in webinar formats. To discuss what this might look like for your organisation, give us a call on 01582 463463 to talk through your requirements.
