Professional membership and resource organisations

CIPDFor professional and technical enquiries about any aspect of HR Management  - and development for HR professionals - contact The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

For advice and support for directors of companies of all sizes, as well as owner-managers or partners in smaller firms, The Institute of Directors provides a wealth of practical resources.

Professional services

Our solicitors are Bridge McFarland in Grimsby. We have found the personal service and support of one of the partners, Robert Edwards, outstanding over the years.

Our accountants are Lawrence Grant, based in Harrow, NW London. Through their partner Paul Levy they have provided consistent and high-integrity professional advice and support from the beginning of our business.

We have been very happy with the business services provided to us by Lloyds TSB, who have been our bankers since the business began.

Office and computer services

We often need to ship training materials for courses and workshops to remote parts of the world. In doing this we have invariably used DHL International and found them both fast and reliable.

We have consistently good experience of Viking Direct as a source of competitively-priced stationery delivered promptly and at reasonable cost.

Learning and development resources

ProfitAbility

In the course of our work we use a number of outstanding business simulations designed by ProfitAbility Business Simulations.  These offer deep, long-lasting and well applied learning in areas including business finance, strategy, supply chain, process management,  human resource partnering and customer focus.

 For a wealth of strong, academic reading and research, available for downloading from the web, we make extensive use of the resources available from Harvard Business School Publishing, including articles from the Harvard Business Review.

Practical exercises and other resources to include in training designs can be obtained from Management Learning Resources.

The vast range of training materials - exercises, questionnaires and literature - on a wide range of personal and interpersonal topics we can source through Pfeiffer has helped us with many learning designs.

For materials to support learning about the learning process and developing Learning Organisations we have found materials published by Peter Honey both theoretically sound and practically useful to our clients.

This website was carefully designed to meet our objectives by people with an honest, professional approach at Shy Studios, who offer a wide range of website, graphic design and print services.

Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur (wonderful facilities and hospitality)

Radisson Edwardian Hotels, London (good conference facilities and support, fair rates)

Taj Mahal Hotel, Mumbai, India (superb restaurant with cultural performances)
