“Absolutely professional in every aspect – I would thoroughly recommend them to any business no matter what sector. Not only are they hugely experienced, but also fully up to date with today’s technology and how it can be made to work for you. Hire them!”Scott Garson, Cartmell Shepherd
Who we are & why we collaborate on training
“Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners ….
What unites us is far greater than what divides us.”President John F. Kennedy
However corny it may sound, shared values (and a similar need to throw heart, soul and the kitchen sink at whatever we are working on) brought us to a point where we began to collaborate on more and more projects. Although we still maintain our independent businesses and our own clients, we work closely on training and project management with a range of businesses based predominantly in Cumbria. Best of both worlds…. and from client feedback, we feel we bring a range of skills, dynamics and ideas to each assignment. We love what we do. The quote above seemed to sum the collaboration up.
