In Business

Ross has a wealth of experience working with various business organisations such as BAe Airbus, Commercial Managers Association, Federation of Small Businesses, BNI International, UCLAN, Wells International Music Academy, and ITV Granada Reports.

He offers a variety of learning modules, either face to face or online, and much of his training and development is created in a bespoke manner for the individual client based upon their specific needs. His aim is to change behaviour mindsets referencing current research, adopting a variety of educational engagement processes and using a keen ear to listen to the needs of the organisation. Success for Ross is when the organisation makes positive change and is empowered to work independently in the future.
