Our specialists are all experts in their fields & run their own independent practices. We have made a very conscious decision to only use experts who are active in research and/or practice in their field rather than have sessions delivered by “trainers” or “presenters”.
As a yardstick, our “Essentials Programme” which typically runs through the course of an afternoon into early evening can normally be delivered for a fee of around £3,500 – £4,000 in locations around the M4/ Thames Valley corridor. This is the total fee covering up to a maximum of 10 participants. Other areas, including central London, attract a higher fee.
Similarly, as a yardstick, our two-day “Full Programme”, depending upon the sessions chosen, can typically be delivered at a fee of around £7,000 – £8,000. Again for however many participants, you wish, up to a maximum of 10.
You will also need to consider the cost of the venue & catering.
We are a bit choosy about venues! This is because the surroundings & room setup have a significant influence on the atmosphere. Our strong preference is for high-quality venues offering a relaxed environment. Sofas & armchairs rather than desks & death by Powerpoint!
You may have venues that you know well & have a good relationship with. We are very happy for you to arrange the venue & catering or to guide us towards your preference. Alternatively, we will make all of the arrangements.
We have spent a reasonable amount of time & effort discovering small, high-quality venues that work well for us in terms of layout, facilities & location. Some are rather quirky & real one-offs!
Our “default” venues are in the Thames Valley and the costs, including catering (but not overnight accommodation), normally fall in the range of £1,000 – £2,000 per day, again for up to 10 participants. Fewer participants will, of course, reduce the catering costs a little.
