Rooms & Equipment

The number of participants will determine the rooms and equipment needed for an in-house course.

For a course with up to 8 people, participants will work as one team on the main consultancy simulation and skills development sessions. For larger courses (up to a maximum of 16 participants) participants will do their preparation for these sessions in 2 teams in 2 different rooms.

Each team in turn will have the opportunity to observe, analyse and then run a number of client meetings designed to illustrate the use of consultancy skills and techniques and to allow participants to learn, practise and fine-tune the practical application of a range of techniques and approaches. The course facilitator (our consultant) will be the "client" in these meetings. This ensures each participant has the opportunity to receive personal feedback to help develop their consultancy style and performance. Each of our tutors is a practising management consultant with a large client base and can draw on recent practical experience of handling real-life situations with clients.

Larger courses (up to 24 people)

We use a 2-day timetable for in-house courses. If you have a particularly large group (up to a maximum of 24 people) we can run the course over 3 days using a modified course structure: half the course (say, 12 people) attends the Day 1 timetable on the first day, the other half (the other 12 people) attends the Day 1 timetable on the second day, and the entire course (up to 24 people) then attends the Day 2 timetable on the third day of the course. This way we ensure that even on large in-house courses participants still have the opportunity to practise and receive guidance and feedback on their consultancy techniques in small groups.
