OUR APPROACH

Both Training & Development Unit and Consultancy Unit are inextricably linked, which ensures a bottom line approach directly supporting business objectives. Often, upon completion of a ‘skill-build’ seminar, consultancy services are offered based on the concepts, skills and techniques presented. Conversely, seminars are organized and focused on particular aspects arising from the consultation.
The use of highly qualified instructors and facilitators together with state-of-the-art audio and visual aids in all seminars and workshops ensures excellent results. In key areas of vital importance for the sustainability and improvement of businesses, the lectures are delivered by internationally renowned trainers. Finally, we listen to our customers and we design, develop, and deliver seminars, courses, and workshops to meet their individual needs.
Our target comprises a wide range of business, non-profit organizations and professional individuals-stimulating a wealth of training seminars and courses. The activities can be divided in several major categories such as:

Professional Education
Business-to-business training through corporate customized training.
Coordination and Management of EU projects/Training i.e.Leonardo Da Vinci, Grundtvig, Equal etc.
