FOREWARD

We are very pleased to bring you our Training Programmes for the year 2014 and hope you will find it both interesting and helpful.

Existing clients will, however, note:
1. A slight pruning of our range of programmes which has become necessary to provide capacity for growth areas.
2. A general up-dating of contents with changes of emphasis as demanded by the ever changing business environment.

For those not yet familiar with our Training and Consultancy Services, we have tried to give a fair reflection of what we believe are the prime reasons for our considerable growth in recent years, namely:

- Our practical approach
- The seniority, experience and presentation skills of our staff
- A beautiful environment

In spite of the foregoing, no brochure can tell the whole story and we would greatly value any opportunity to discuss our programmes further with you.
