what we do
No two businesses or organisations are the same and as such no two training requirements and solutions are the same. We provide individual and tailor made programmes for each client, engaging with you at every stage of the process.
Providing you with high quality training and facilitation, Guy Pocock together with a small number of carefully selected and highly qualified associates will provide you with high-end training that is second to none.
Providing Commercial Value & Return on Investment
We appreciate the cost of training and also the cost of not training! At course design stage we will work with you to establish how you will measure the success of the training in terms of tangible and less tangible business and organisational outputs.
Key Note Speaking
We are available to provide inputs to conferences where key messages need to be conveyed in an articulate and motivational way. Recently this service has been delivered in areas including ‘Managing Staff Performance’ at Head & Deputy head teachers’ conferences and launching new systems and processes such as behavioural frameworks and performance reviews.
Coaching and 1-2-1
Where more individual development is needed we can provided personalised or small team coaching. We have particular strengths in working with newly promoted managers, team leaders or supervisors who face some of the biggest challenges when dealing with difficult workplace issues.
Bespoke Training Films
Working closely with our partners at Dream Time Film, we produce bespoke training films for business and organisations. The films are extremely successful in terms of learning and development as the learners see their own work systems, processes and environment being featured. This helps increases the relevance and requirement for the training and is highly effective in terms of increasing the commercial value and returns on investment.
I am the General Manager here at The Beer Hall, Hawkshead Brewery. I joined Guy’s course a couple of years ago with my manager. At the time we both found the experience very beneficial. Not only does Guy have a wealth of information and helpful points but he made the course interesting, engaging, fun and memorable which is not always the case with other courses I have attended. I have continued to use the points I learned which have helped me make the step up to manager and to help me with challenges I face along the way.
“We have worked with Guy for a number of years and he has supported us in many ways including Management Development Pogramme, Tam Leader training and Performance Review training. He is insightful and always ensures that the courses deliver on our business needs and his engaging approach maximises the benefits to those attending. ” Suzanne Allen

I would like to pass on our sincere appreciation for the superb training you delivered whilst onsite here at Hewlett-Packard.
Each of our learners has expressed the highest regard and respect for your training style and delivery, the content couldn’t have been more engaging and the icing on the cake? I am happy to tell you that ALL of our delegates passed the exam.Thank you so much, you sure have created a buzz in terms of advocating self-belief and the benefits of adult learning.
I just wanted to say thank you for all your support – it really has been absolutely invaluable for our project. It helps to just take a step back with someone who is independent but can give support and straight forward advice that really works. I would personally recommend your advice to anyone – regardless of their experience or background, whether it’s through a formal training course or 1:1 mentoring.
I wholeheartedly agree with the feedback comments and have recommended to our ‘training lead’, that we offer up the course (Team Leadership Skills) to everyone in our OU with management responsibilities.
Guy provided a professional service. Taking the time to meet with us beforehand and listening to our requirements, he delivered a thoughtful and effective training session in a relaxed and informative manner. The use of role play brought fun to the learning and enabled participants to experience situations that they may encounter in the workplace
I achieved my promotion at Topshop after learning some great presentation skills from Lakes Training Solutions – It made such an impact with my senior managers!
