our Approach to Training
In today’s fast changing legislative and work environment, it is imperative to keep up to date and stay ahead of the pack. This includes both the technical know how and emotional intelligence to do your job effectively.
We offer cost effective training and professional development packages which are tailored to the needs and experience of your organisation. Our packages are suitable for staff, executive teams, elected officials, board members and volunteers.
Our approach is based on a collaborative and interactive style – we believe in creating a low stakes environment so that there is maximum learning opportunities.
We tailor our content to suit your local needs and will come to you to deliver our training.
Our packages are delivered by our highly qualified and experienced team. This includes Emma Broomfield who is a trained lawyer and nationally accredited mediator, and Cinnamon Dunsford who is a qualified planner and community engagement practitioner. Together they bring a complementary skill set which covers the spectrum of technical knowledge and soft people skills. Both are dynamic and engaging presenters and facilitators.
