Live Training


To see the full picture of the transition taking place within the power industry, it’s crucial to step out of your everyday working silo. You need to join the dots between technology and economics, financial returns and on-the-ground delivery, incumbent players and new entrants, industry and policy. Only then can you build a resilient business and investment strategy, one that’s adaptive to new opportunities while realistic about current and future risks.

I’ll help you join the dots you know well with the ones you don’t – and I’ll add in ones you hadn’t even thought about. I’ll draw the picture in a way that’s logical, clear and business-focused.Dr John Massey, Managing Director, Grey Cells Energy Ltd.

Small-group training

With a maximum of 20 attendees (10-15 is ideal, though fewer is fine too), these sessions are certainly not lectures. Instead they are highly interactive, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions, discuss the key issues and get specific interests covered. 

  1. Ideal for teams: quickly bring everyone to a consistent level of knowledge

  2. Full interaction with the trainer, for questions, discussions and on-the-day flexibility

  3. Ask the questions specific to your business, in a private environment

  4. Bespoke option: specify learning objectives, topic coverage and timings

  5. Learn at your own site, to your own schedule

  6. Avoid the out-of-office time, multiple attendance fees and travel/hotel costs of a public course

One-to-one coaching

Is there something specific on your mind, which you quickly need explained? Or would you like a personalised series of knowledge-building sessions to get you up-to-speed for a new job role – or to help you get one. Inquire about setting up live, one-to-one sessions via Skype, Google+ or similar.

  1. Ideal for individuals: learn when and where it suits you

  2. Suited to short, topic-specific sessions (+/- 1 hour)

  3. No need to wait until a group can all co-ordinate their diaries

  4. Don’t feel pressured by other attendees: ask what you want and go at your speed

  5. Total flexibility, from a single session to a structured series

Stay updated

Developing educational content takes time, which doesn’t leave much for writing and sending out emails! That means updates will be infrequent and to the point – you’ll only be emailed when there’s something genuinely new to tell you or with occasional summaries of updated content.

Most importantly: list data is never ever shared, sold, rented or otherwise provided to any 3rd parties!
