“I have always considered myself to be a trainer. It did not seem to matter what job I did, everyone always seemed to come to me for direction. I have been lucky in my career and have worked within some good companies and have obtained a lot of experience in a management and executive capacity and I had always considered a career move into consultancy. I had some interviews with the top consultancies and accountancy firms and did some research, but everything seemed to focus upon either managing projects or providing advice. Nothing seemed to click with me. Then I was introduced to Appleton Greene through a company colleague and it was like a light bulb moment for me. I initially looked into becoming a consultant with them, but it was clear that the Certified Learning Provider was more appropriate for me. I liked the idea of developing something tangible, something that would have my own personal footprint on it and everything just felt right for me. The training and support was extremely good and the process helped me to shape my own program. I also like the fact that you have an established client base before developing your program. This really motivates you to keep going and ensures that you are not just wasting time. I carried on working while studying so it afforded me a very smooth transition without unnecessary risk.”
