I’m also licensed to deliver the Spring Forward, Fresh Steps, Sprint and Boost programmes. As one of a very small number of trainers worldwide selected to train other trainers. I worked in Warsaw supporting the first Springboard programme to run in Poland. Along with a small team of Consultancy trainers I designed and delivered a very successful development programme the Home Office for women senior civil servants from a wide cross section of professions.
